What do I need to work efficiently from home?
With advances in technology working from home has never been easier. With the Coronavirus of 2020 more of us than ever have found ourselves working from the comfort of our own homes, but how do we do this effieciently?
You're likely to be sat down for long periods, working from home is no reason to give up good ergonomic practices. Sitting at an old dining chair isn't going to do your back any favours, especially if you're likely to be sat there 8 hours a day for the next few weeks, so you'll need an adjustable ergonomic chair to keep you sat correctly and comfortably.
Unlike your big open plan office, your home may not have quite so much room for the big workstation, narrow and shallow desks are the order of the day, as small as 1000x600 you can fit your desk under the stairs, in the box room or looking out over the garden.
Chances are you aren't moving about quite as much as you would be if you were in the office, no walking to chat to colleagues, going to the printer or taking orders down to the warehouse. Desk risers are a great way of staying active while stationary. Changing your working position regularly is a great way to increase calorie expenditure while at work. Or why not go all the way with an electric sit stand desk?
With your new environment you may find its time to give the room a refresh, if your old curtains are looking a bit dated and not very inspiring now is a great opportunity to swap them out with some new blinds. Every type of blind is available, from simple black-out roller blinds to stunning hand-finished roman blinds, including wood venetian and motorised options.
