You might view working from home as the ideal way to live, and that’s not too far from the truth. Do many people covet the idea of being able to work remotely, but are you fully prepared to live the dream?
Working from home is great, and can turn out to be all that you imagine it to be and more. But if you’re not properly prepared, it can just as easily turn out to be a nightmare. One of the most common pain points for work-from-home amateurs is the lack of proper tools.
The best way to prepare to work from home is to get the equipment you need. To have a truly functional home office, here’s a list of items you will need.
Being able to properly see your work is the first step to getting it done. Aside from that, proper lighting sets the mood for your office and boosts productivity. If the natural lighting is not an option, then a proper desk lamp is your next bet.
This multipurpose desk lamp uses LED and is dimmable. It also comes with daylight savings pre-programmed, a built-in wireless phone charger, and a Bluetooth speaker.
Think of how you feel when you’re waiting on a web page to load on a slow internet connection. Yeah… you don’t want to be dealing with that throughout your workday. Slow internet is not just frustrating, it can seriously hinder your productivity.
Studies have shown that workers waste a full week each year waiting on slow internet connections. Add this to the weeks lost looking for missing papers and you could have a year’s worth of vacation. Needless to say, it’s vital to shop around and choose the best internet connection you can afford.
Since you’ll be sitting for the bulk of your working life, it is important to have a comfortable chair to work with. Sitting for long periods of time adds stress to your spine. If you’re not careful, you could develop long term back problems.
A well-designed chair will let you sit in a balanced position, avoiding stress on your lower back, and selecting a good quality chair will go a long way in preventing injury.
With these tools in hand, you can jump right into planning your home office. Once you have all the basics, you can have some fun personalizing your space to suit your unique needs. Be sure to check out our online store for more office equipment to boost your productivity.
