- Choose a suitable location
Depending on your family and living situation select the right place for your office at home. It may be a separate room or only a smart corner in your living room or somewhere else.
If you have the possibility, I recommend choosing a space away from household and daily stress. If you have for example small kids to look after while working, it may be easier to use a central place (e.g., the dining desk).
- Natural light and view
If possible – choose a place where you have enough natural light and a nice view. Natural light not only ensures well-being and health, but it also lights up your room during the day -so you can save on electricity too.
- Office furniture
Certainly, worth investing in! Invest in an ergonomic chair and table with high quality that is adjustable and comfortable to you. Your neck and back will thank you a lot.
- Technical equipment
Use a TV-Monitor or two monitors – it makes working a lot easier. Also, it is very advisable to use a comfortable mouse. Especially laptop touchpads can be very uncomfortable and awkward while using for a longer time. A high-tech keyboard is also a small tweak that makes a big difference. Choose wireless equipment: they will stop your work from getting lost beneath unnecessary tangled wires.
- Personalize & Accessorize
YOU are the designer of your workplace and YOU decide how your office should feel and look like – a huge advantage in my view. By including personal touches and things that inspire you can make you feel more comfortable.
