Sometimes productivity can be adjusted along with your thermostat. People are most productive in temperatures between 71 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit so increase or decrease your home office temp according to those specifications.
Paint a More Productive Environment
Colors affect us more than we realize. They can directly affect productivity energy mood and many other areas. The color for the best concentration and productivity is orange--the perfect reason to buy an orange stand up desk. A few other colors that help foster a more productive attitude are bright colors such as yellow red and white. Although it would be a little intense to have an office painted completely in a loud color accent walls curtains or even home office furniture in these colors can work positively to boost your mind's focus.

When everything is in its place on your desk you can things done quickly instead of hunting around for those meeting note for 10 minutes.
