Being able to work from home is a benefit that many people are taking advantage of right now. It’s the perfect way to stay away from large public gatherings while still keeping your business on track during these tough times. If you’ve never worked from home before, you may be attempting to build a makeshift office for the time being. If so, here are the four essential items you’ll need to maintain productivity.
It can be very tempting to bring your laptop to the couch with you while you binge watch that TV show you’ve been meaning to get to for ages. But unless you’ve got super-strength willpower, you probably won’t be very productive. Setting up a simple office desk will give you a dedicated place to get your work done.
If you had enough heads-up, you probably brought some files home from the office. You may also have books, planners, notebooks, or other office supplies that need organizing. Instead of random piles on the floor by your bed, try a handsome bookcase.
A Comfortable Office Chair
We already know that sitting all day is bad for our health but when working from home, you can easily walk around without your boss thinking you’re slacking off. But for those times you really do need to sit down and get work done, make it a comfortable office chair.
Of course, you’ll also need the essentials for staying connected including WiFi, a computer, and the software programs you have on your work computer. Many places are offering these items for free. Contact your local authorities to learn more.
Stay Safe While Still Being Productive
Working from home is the best way to practice social distancing during these times. Limiting your exposure to the public is the surest way to avoid getting sick. Stay safe and remember to wash your hands, folks! We’ll see you again soon.
