Here are some suggestions to enhance your work-from-home environment so that it feels more comfortable and conducive to productivity.
1. Invest in a good quality desk chair
First and foremost, invest in a good quality desk chair – you’ll be sitting on it a fair bit! Sitting for long periods of time can cause a lot of strain on the back and shoulders, so it’s essential to have a chair that provides proper lumbar support and is adjustable to fit your body.
Look for a chair that has adjustable armrests, a tilt function and can be adjusted for height.

2. Get a monitor that’s big enough to avoid eye strain
Another important aspect of your WFH setup is your monitor. Make sure to get a monitor that is big enough to avoid eye strain. A larger monitor allows you to see more of your work at once, which can reduce the need to constantly move your eyes back and forth.
If possible, opt for a monitor with a high resolution and an anti-glare coating to reduce the strain on your eyes. Remember to step away from the screen every now and then to give your eyes a break too!
3. Make sure your work surface is organised and clutter-free
A cluttered and disorganised work surface can be distracting and can make it harder to focus on the task at hand. Make sure your work surface is neat and organised to suit your processes.
Keep only what you need on your desk, and make sure everything has a designated place. This will help to reduce distractions and improve your productivity. You’ll feel better too, knowing your desk looks neat and tidy!
4. Set up a comfortable space for relaxing breaks
Taking regular breaks is essential for your physical and mental well-being. Set up a comfortable space in your home where you can relax during breaks.
Having a designated relaxation space will help you to unwind and recharge, so you can return to your work feeling refreshed. Bonus points if you have some outdoor space to relax in! Even more bonus points if you have a portable massager in your relaxation space!
5. Take care of your muscles
Taking care of your muscles is extremely important while working from home. Sitting in one position for long periods of time can cause tension and pain in your neck, shoulders and back. It’s important to get up and move around every hour or so to stretch and release tension. Consider using a standing desk or a balance board to change up your posture and engage different muscle groups.
Then, wind down after work with one of our massage chairs to soothe away the workday!
All in all, remember to choose furniture that meets your needs, free up any clutter on your desk or work surfaces and don’t forget to switch off and relax to take care of yourself. These small changes can make a big difference in your productivity and well-being.
