The dread of having to go back to the office has come and gone and your company has officially decided to adopt the remote-working structure full time! YAY! But now suddenly your makeshift table and workspace that you've been working on for the last year just doesn't cut it anymore.
Today we're sharing 5 products that will not only improve the aesthetic and organization of your workspace but will actually also help with your productivity too in the long run! So let's get started!
1. Laptop stand
Can you blame us for making this our first recommendation? We are firm believers that having the proper laptop riser will make a world of difference when it comes to your sitting position, aiding with neck and back strain, as well as help to keep your desk space in tip top shape.
The Enkel Studios Birch Laptop stand creates the perfect viewing angle, whether you're using your laptop as your main computer or if you're also using a secondary monitor. It's got built in vents underneath the main platform to help your computer maintain cool and working well, as well as a slot in the back for your wires to feed through. We thought of everything when we created this product so it's no surprise that it's a must-have for us!
2. Ergonomic keyboard and mouse
We're making the assumption that if you're working from home, you're most likely doing work that requires you to be at the computer all day long. Our workspaces changed completely when we upgraded from the standard mouse and keyboard and decided to invest in ergonomic pieces!
Our favourites are the Dygma Raise and the Logi MX Master 3 mouse. Both these products were total game changers when it came to the comfort and usability of our workspace and we can't recommend them enough!
3. Good lighting
If you're blessed with the option of having your desk right up against a window then good job! Having natural lighting illuminate your workspace during the day is the ideal situation for a productive workspace. However, if you're like us and don't have the option to sit in front of a window or you just prefer to work in the evenings, then investing in proper lighting for your space is key!
BenQ made the perfect light for those of you who are designers, engineers, students, or even gamers! This lamp includes a curved design which helps to deliver a 90cm illumination range, 150% wider than a regular reading lamp. It's patented design helps to reduce glare when using it with monitors, and it's the perfect addition to help reduce eye-strain during any time of the day.
4. Monitor stand
If working on just a laptop isn't your gig, then you'll need a monitor stand to help give it the height it needs to reduce neck strain. One of the biggest reasons for neck and back strain is having an improper desk set up.
We love our Birch Monitor stand because not only does it provide extra space for you to organize the contents of your desktop, but it raises your monitor to eye level, helping create a more ergonomic working environment. Not to mention it's nordic-inspired design makes it a beautiful piece to display on your desk!
What's worse than dogs barking or kids screaming while you're in a Zoom meeting? One of the most helpful items we've added to our workspace to combat this issue is definitely a high quality headset.
We love our Sennheiser Game Zero headset. Designed for gaming purposes, this headset allows you to easily mute while providing proper sound dampening so you can hear more clearly. Not to mention this is one of the most comfortable pair of headphones we've ever tried!
