Since the pandemic has upended our everyday world, a few things have changed for the better. More nature walks, truly appreciating loved ones, and the ability to work from home. Oh yes, a shining light in the midst of chaos is that a lot of people have been able to stay in the PJs and login to the office remotely from the comfort of their own house. So here are the 5 home office essentials to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
There is nothing more stress-inducing than a depressing, cluttered workspace. So consider adding an L-Shaped desk, like this Sauder Costa design, to your office. It will offer a lot more work area to help keep everything tidy and organized, while also beautifying the space with a gorgeous piece of furniture.
Bring a bit of the outdoors in with a gorgeous potted palm from Nearly Natural. It is common knowledge that nature and plants have a relaxing effect, so adding a bit of greenery to your home office will do a world of difference. My extra little hack here is that I suggest a faux plant. This way, you get all the benefits of having a bit of nature indoors, without the stressors of maintaining it. Win-win!
The hardest part of remote work is effective communication. Face-to-face conversations and meetings are no longer taking place, so how do you make sure your team is communicating with each other in the best way? That’s where Blink comes in. Blink allows for mobile access to the applications, communications, people, processes that all at-home workers need. All your team’s communication needs in one app?! Um, yes please! Not only will it increase productivity and retention, Blink will also take the frustration out of your daily routine. Thus, allowing for a healthier work-life balance.
One of the most important things to institute in a home office is a proper coffee break. It seems trivial, but it is actually crucial that you allot yourself relaxing breaks throughout the work day. One way to do this is by setting up a full coffee bar in your home office. I am talking French press, electric kettle, gourmet coffee, creamers, and even cute and functional accessories like this Coffee Station Box. This will help break up the day and give your mind and body a bit of downtime to stretch.
Last, but certainly not least, you need a comfy place to park yourself at your new gorgeous desk. I suggest this stylish, yet practical office chair from 24KF. The elegant design has a swivel seat, gas-lift mechanisms adjusts height, and polished golden color about the metal base. Best of all, it has a stunning velvet fabric finish and comes in 7 different color options to choose from. This is one way to spoil yourself and add an extra bit of style and class to your home office.
