Handy Home Products that Make WFH Easier!

As we move forward into a more digitally focused future (where most of us are working from home), we need a new set of products capable of keeping up with us. What sort of things might come in useful if you were to spend all day at the home desk? Let’s take a look…

Working From Home? Try These…

So if you are WFH this year, or if you are spending more time at home due to less work being available, try these products to make your life delightful again.

The Essentials

Some of the most basic working from home products should include a decent laptop or desktop computer, a good wireless mouse, Wi-Fi that can keep up with your workload, and a few home comforts (such as a wide padded gaming chair).

Let’s assume you have all these basics and want to make your setup that little bit more appealing. If you want to start spending more time enjoying your home office, try some of the following…

Sugru Mouldable Rubber

This particular rubber is technically a glue. It is a top drawer product in as much of a way as your stapler and Sellotape should be. Why? Sugru is capable of setting as a tough, durable, waterproof silicon. Putting it on the edges of things like a tablet or laptop screen, could be enough to protect your devices against future damages. It’s even fantastic in terms of screen fixes, since it can hold a screen together that has been broken. Sugru is one of those products you wouldn’t be able to live without.

Thermal mug

That’s right! Thermal mugs aren’t just for keeping your coffee warm during your commute… They are for keeping your coffee warm when you’re working so hard that you forgot about it. The latest thermal cups will keep a drink warm for hours, meaning that you get hot coffee for longer… With fewer trips to the kettle.

You can find really nice range of thermal mugs on Etsy. You can even find someone who will personalise one for you!

Footrest

It might sound basic, but if you don’t have an office chair with an incorporated footstool,then a footrest is ideal for working from home comfort. The modern footrest is made from memory foam, comes with optimal comfort, and can be adjusted to your desired size. It might not be an essential product, but it will make working from home much more comfortable.

Studies have shown that elevating the feet off the ground is better for your posture and can ease back pain. If you are getting achy in your office chair, this one is for you.

Rounding Up

Sitting at the desk all day can be much more satisfying when that desk is in the corner of the living room. Unfortunately, it can be a little less productive for your employer. In the next few months we should expect new tech aimed at ensuring we are at our desks for the amount of time we say we are. Until then, let’s get comfortable… there’s no reason we can’t WFH in style.
