So, what can we do? One of the easy and natural ways to energize or relax while you work is to keep a simple herbal potpourri on your work desk.
If you are looking to relax, then you can add herbs like lavender, basil, cardamom and so on.
Dried herbs usually tend to have a stronger fragrance and so are typically used to make potpourri, though there is nothing to suggest that you cannot use fresh herbs. Though, if you are using fresh herbs, then you may want to keep them in a small bottle or vase with water (so they will stay fresh).
Also keep in mind that if you are using completely natural potpourri made from just dried herbs with no extra spray of essential oils, then it is possible that you may not smell it too easily or strongly. Which should help people with extra-smell-sensitivities, though usually, their allergies are because of the synthetic fragrances. Most people like and feel comforted with such natural, herbal aromas.
As you take short breaks throughout your workday, you can then relax your hand and wrists. Close your eyes and allow them a little rest (as they can get very tired with computer glare, as we all know) and then take a sniff or two of your invigorating or relaxing potpourri mix.
It should help you to feel re-charged and invigorated (or relaxed, depending on your choice of herbs) so you can continue working the segment with zeal and inspiration!
