If you’re like a lot of people, you’ve come to realize that working from home isn’t all cheesecake and burgers. Considering the unavoidable distractions from your “co-workers” (mom, dad, siblings, spouse, kids, hey duggie, and maybe a lousy neighbor), your work from home experience might have been slowly tugging at your mental health.
It doesn’t have to be this way and if you deliberately create an ambiance that works for you and sets some boundaries, remote work could actually be pleasurable. As a result, we have curated some work from home essentials that could (hopefully) get you excited for remote work every morning and most importantly, help you get the job done. We don’t want you to be busy but unproductive. We don’t want that at all.
Here are 5 work-from-home essentials you need…
#1. A desk and chair
An actual at-home-workplace could inspire a more serious approach to work as it gives the feeling; ‘I’m going to work’ which can be hard to find when working from home. Set up this space with a desk and and chair and sit here to accomplish your daily work-related tasks. You will be surprised at how efficient and productive you’ll be. Also, it is necessary to invest in a soft cushion-like chair as you’ll be sitting on this chair for hours a day, unless you like the idea of numb buttocks right after.

#2. A lap desk
This is for the inevitable times when you have to work from the bed or couch. It’s more comfortable than slouching over while you work and consequently, hurting your back. An added advantage is that it keeps your computer at eye-level which is a necessity.

#3. A lamp
There will be times when all you need is the light on your desk without shining through the entire room, that’s what this is for. This work-from-home essential is also helpful if you share a space with someone who likes to sleep with the lights off.

#4. A Bluetooth speaker
A Bluetooth speaker is an (almost) indispensable work-from-home essential that is often ignored, but is a real game-changer. In addition to boosting your laptop’s speaker for those virtual meetings and playing soothing music, its size is an advantage as it doesn’t take up much space on your desk.

#5. Blue-light blocking glasses
Sitting in front of a computer day in and out eventually takes its toll on the eyes causing eye fatigue and even more serious eye and neck problems. These blue-light glasses pack a powerful punch as they have been said to shield the eyes from the effects of prolonged exposure to the blue light emitted from your phone and computer screens.

In conclusion, whether you’re a WFH (Work From Home) pro or are still trying to adjust to working with PJs the entire day, a great workspace will definitely boost productivity. Go on, try it yourself.
