During the pandemic, the home office has become a staple in many households. Learning how to organise a home office to become productive in a new work environment is now the new normal for many employees.
A clean, fresh and organised home office can help you stay focused longer, reduce workplace accidents and injuries, and even benefit your mental health. It all starts with picking up the tools you need to make it work. Accessories you'll find in this guide can help improve productivity and efficiency. It will also lead you to an easy way of arranging your office and creating a healthy workspace.
Ergonomic chair, keyboard and mouse
An ergonomic chair, keyboard, and mouse prevent pain and damage to your hands and wrists, leading to surgery. An adjustable armrest combined with an ergonomic keyboard and mouse place your back, neck, hands, elbows, wrists and arms in a natural position, which means less straining and reaching for the mouse and keypad.
Wireless charging station
Invest in technology that provides mobility around your workspace. With a wireless charging station, you can freely move around without having to worry about all the cords of your gadgets. Wireless charging will reduce destruction and allows you to concentrate on the tasks. Less clutter, and your mind feels more at ease, too.
Document holders place paper documents at your eye level for comfortable reading alongside your computer screen, so you avoid acute and chronic neck pain. If you deal with paper documents a lot, either switch to digital or get a document holder.
