Colors can heavily impact us physically, intellectually, and emotionally. Angela Wright, a world-renowned color psychologist has developed a scientifically-tested theory of color named the color affects system. Her work says that while every individual may interpret colors differently, universally, it influences everyone on a very basic level. 

So with that, plus a few adjustments to your workspace and routine, yes, you can be productive at home!
