HOME / OFFICE
Work and private life are blurring. Homes are becoming hubs for everything. It’s a balancing act, but working from home can be efficient and enjoyable – when you have the right tools.
The way we work has changed, and many of us have brought our office life home with us. Now, delivering that killer online presentation or hitting that late night deadline can happen in the same space where you just had your breakfast.
It can be efficient and even enjoyable, but we need ways to keep work-life and home-life less blurry. Effective tools that elegantly integrate with your home environment – tools that help you create work space in your home space, that help you focus, find inspiration, or simply relax.
How to boost your mood when working from home
The best work happens in environments that support creative processes.
Create a space that will help you zone in and work well by being mindful of your mood.
Good lighting can make a world of difference. If your work area doesn’t benefit from plenty of natural light, consider adding a lamp that mimics sunlight to get some of those feelgood rays.
Candles or essential oils can also be very useful not only for helping to combat stress, but also for preparing your mind and body for switching to ‘work mode’ when you can’t move to a different physical space.
Try to minimise wires and look for simple ways to charge your various devices. The irritation of having a battery run low or getting cables tangled up can ruin your flow. Smart plug boards and wireless charging pads can help keep your space clear.
Elevate your home workstation with home speakers that offer much more than background music. Pair Bluetooth enabled speakers with mobile devices or laptops for great call clarity during meetings or choose models with integrated voice assistant for hands-free help.
Improve concentration levels even if you’re set up in the living room, with a range of headphones comfortable enough to wear for long periods. Look out for useful features, such as powerful ANC to neutralise background noise and intuitive touch controls for easy call picks up or volume changes.
Best of all, when the working day is done, your speakers and headphones can transition into the perfect way to relax, play and enjoy all the comforts of home.
