Your Home Office Can Be Comfortable
By Donna Stark
If you are looking at the possibility of working at home in the near future, you may as well put some time aside to think about how you are going to set up a comfortable workspace. And by comfortable, I don't mean propping up some pillows on your bed and balancing a tray stand for your snacks. No, your workspace still needs to evoke a sense of professionalism, but that can be hard to do when you don't have the same kind of budget as the company you work for does. Well, there are some simple things you can invest in that won't break the bank but will help you keep the work flowing. Take a look.
Finding the space to keep all of your office supplies organized can be quite the challenge for your makeshift desk at home and that is why it is imperative you start with a desk organizer. Find one that has separate compartments for your pens, highlighters, paper clips, sticky notes, and whatever else you use on a regular basis.
Standing Desk Converter
Are you working at the kitchen table because you don't have a separate desk at home? If so, you may want to consider purchasing a portable laptop stand. Some tables just aren't at the proper height and can often force you into uncomfortable working positions, but a laptop stand can elevate your screen which can help reduce the risk of neck and shoulder pain.
Since you don't have the walls of your cubicle to pin your tasks and goals on anymore, you are going to need something as an alternative. This is where a dry-erase board can come in handy! Dry-erase boards come in many different styles (some even have calendars on them), so find the one that can benefit you and your schedule the most!
Ergonomic Chair Products
If you don't have a desk at home it is more than likely that you don't have an ergonomic chair too. Don't put yourself through the misery of sitting on a hard dining room chair for hours on end. Invest in an ergonomic chair pad and lumbar support instead. Your body will thank you for it after just the first few days of working at home.
Working Comfortably at Home
No matter where you are, you spend a lot of your time doing your job. So, make sure you are at least comfortable while doing so. It could make all the difference in how your days go and how you feel!
