With the rise of the Covid-19 pandemic, work-from-home has become the norm for most of us. We understand how difficult it might be to focus and ensure productivity at home especially with endless distractions like our family members, or our adorable pets.
To help you overcome the challenges of remote working and ensure maximum productivity, here is a simple guide on everything you need to create the perfect home office set-up.
We understand how difficult it might be to dedicate an entire space for a new desk especially in a compact home. Furthermore, a desk takes up the most significant amount of space in an office set-up. So why not get a functional one with generous storage space? With ample desk storage, you won’t need to purchase additional storage furniture like shelves and cabinets to store your essentials. This will be extremely useful in helping you save both space and cost!
Most importantly, a storage desk provides you with dedicated storage to keep your important and confidential documents safe, organised and out of sight. This will also reduce clutter, allowing you to stay focused and motivated throughout the day.
Ergonomic Office Chairs
Comfort and productivity are both instrumental to a good workspace. Why separate the two? With ergonomic chairs you’re gonna hustle all day with a smile on your face, and productivity’s sure to come.
Ergonomic chairs are designed to help you sit comfortably for a long period of time, which is perfect for work-from-home purposes. They provide large amounts of neck and back support, reducing stiffness and allowing you to maintain good posture. Fret not, you’ll definitely have sufficient energy to stay awake during those endless zoom calls.
With enhanced comfort and support, you definitely won’t have trouble ensuring productivity and meeting all your deadlines.
We admire your hard work and dedication, but you have to know when to kick back and relax! Taking short purposeful breaks throughout the day is crucial in helping you conserve your energy and improve concentration. A good break can allow you to develop fresh perspectives, ideas, and also prevent burnout.
Take a nap, read a book, or even just scroll through TikToks and you’ll have all the energy you need to ace that next task. Simply dedicate a small space for a floor sofa bed or a bean bag for the ultimate comfort and relaxation.
To complete your home office set-up, invest in a cozy rug! This will add warmth, texture and character to your space and make it extra comfy and inviting. Choose a rug with bright colours or striking patterns and elevate your space instantly.
Working in a poorly lit space might might cause unnecessary strain to the eye and also make working more gloomy and dreadful. As such, brighten up your space by situating your home office set-up near a window! This will allow for natural light to enter your work space, allowing you to feel more optimistic and motivated to complete that to-do list.
Most importantly, you need to stay hydrated! Drink a full glass of water in the morning before you start replying your endless emails. To ensure you stay hydrated all day, fill up a 2 litre water bottle and place it on your desk and you’ll have enough H2O to last you at least till lunch. This will help you maintain your energy level and focus throughout the day. Staying productive won’t be as big of a challenge anymore.
