Whistle While You Work: 10 Brightly Colored Task Lights

Sometimes, work is work, and that’s all there is to it.  For those sorts of assignments that are just devoid of fun and there’s nothing we can do about it, the least we can do is furnish and decorate our workspace in a way that’s comfortable and inviting.  If the task at hand can’t make us smile, our surroundings still can; that’s why we’ve pulled together today’s roundup of ten brightly-colored task lights to illuminate our desks even if the work itself isn’t exactly horizon-expanding.  If life is 20 percent what happens to you and 80 percent how you react to it, personal little touches like this signify that we can find the silver lining in almost anything, and the fun in the mundane.  So light your space with something unique while you’re burning that midnight oil.  Who knows?  Your hard work and can-do attitude just might pay off someday.
