3) Dual screen:
By having two monitors, a person can run multiple applications simultaneously. For instance, on one screen, you can have your email, while on the other browse the web or use a program. This allows for fast and easy comparisons between files. Using a dual monitor set up, leads to an increase in productivity due to a larger and more flexible visual workspace.

4) Switching off email popup notifications:
One of the most distracting events is for you to receive a popup informing you that an email has arrived. The subsequent action, unless you’re disciplined is to look at the email, maybe respond to it quickly and then try getting back on track, only to
be interrupted again when the next one arrives.
To disable the pop up you need to do the following:
On the file menu, click Options. Then go to the Mail tab, scroll down to Message arrive: where you will find message notification option.
5) Hands free headsets:
Something as simple as a hands free headsets can increase your work productivity. Studies show that using a headset instead of hand held phone makes you more productive by freeing up both your hands allowing you to use a computer, handle documents or make notes. Another useful advantage is when you're making calls you are free to move around the office and accomplish other tasks; this is especially useful if you are waiting on hold. Being hands free can help improve your posture, and make you feel more active at the end of the work day.
