Build Your Dream Workstation With These WFH Essentials

1. A Flexible Work Desk

For many, a day of work wouldn’t be possible without a cup of coffee fuel to switch on the thinking engine. Your work from home essentials should include a home office station with a Nespresso machine.

4. The Ultra-Fitted Ergonomic Chair

You might want to start investing in ergonomic chairs if you’re always on your laptop and sitting all day long. These chairs support postures, reduce neck pain, relieve hip pressure, and boost blood circulation, leading to fewer painful and sore work hours.

6. Laptop Stand

It doesn’t feel good with your body sitting uncomfortably for long hours because of the fixed angle of the laptop screen. Consider buying a laptop stand instead to adjust your angle. They’re even good for standing while working.

7. Green Plants

Did you know that the color green can boost creativity? It’s even better if those are green from plants. Plants give oxygen, maintain the feeling of freshness, improve your mood, and let your creative juices flow. Get yourself some lemongrass diffusers if plants are too much to ask.
