Your home office should inspire your productivity. Unfortunately, some people working from home neglect to create an environment that facilitates productivity.
Now that most offices around Kenya have their employees working from home, it’s up to everyone to figure out how they can do their best work. Rather than struggling from cluttered desks to uncomfortable chairs, it’s time to invest in some home office supplies. Make sure your home office space is up to snuff, after all, it may be a while before you are back in the office.
Here are a few ideas on how to make your home office much more productive:
Make your workspace distinct
No matter how cramped your living arrangement, separate your home office from the rest of the house. Working on the couch might be fun for a few hours, but if you don’t physically separate work from leisure, you will struggle to separate the two mentally as well. Designate an area solely for work.
The right chair
Your desk chair, when it comes to your health, is arguably even more important than your desk. If your chair is poorly designed, it could be contributing to health issues such as lower back pain which will affect your productivity. Comfort goes a long way in helping you be more productive. The ergonomic office chair is fully adjustable to ensure you find the perfect fit to get in the zone. When you’re more comfortable, you can focus better and churn through your workday more efficiently. Before buying an office chair, you should definitely do your own research first. Everyone has different areas of weakness; hence all chairs work differently for different people.
The right desk
The very center of any efficient and tailored work-from-home setup is your desk. From being the trusted plane that houses all your essential office equipment to standing strong as you type, call, and mastermind through the day, your choice of desk is vitally important.
Where will you keep your supplies like pens, sticky notes, paper, folders, ink, business cards, and other stuff ? Consider purchasing a bookshelf to store items in your home office. When it comes to hard copy documents, storage is necessary. The best place to store these documents is in a well-organized file cabinet.
There will certainly be other items you’ll need in your home office, depending on the type of work you do and how much space is available. These are the essential items that a home office should have. All of the above items are available at Newline Limited’s store in Nairobi. Visit Newline today for more information.
