Thanks to technology, there has been a surge of work from home jobs or as some people call it, remote jobs. As the world becomes increasingly digitalised, working from the comfort of your own home sounds perfect, but if you don’t do it right, it can have a detrimental effect on your productivity.

Regardless of the size of your space, there are some things to take note to help make it more productive and at the same time do it on a budget.

Multi purpose adjustable desktop table

We all get neck aches from sitting at a desk all day long, whether is it in the office or even in our own home. Scientific research has shown that too much sitting is linked to heart disease, diabetes, and premature death. Most of us lead a sedentary lifestyle and an adjustable desk is what we all need. 

Switch from standing to sitting whenever you need. It is multi purpose so when you’re not using it for work, you can move it out of your home office to the living room and have some family bonding time playing games whether standing or sitting. 

Comfortable chair

We spend a lot of time at our seat so choose one that offers ergonomic support and ensure that it meets your needs. Do you want a flexible back, one made with foam, tall back for support, etc. Take your time on this as you will be living your decision almost everyday. Even with a limited budget, there is a wide variety from you to choose from.

Food, snacks, drinks

When we think of creating a conducive work environment, snacks don’t really come up to mind. But can you remember a day going by without you sneaking to the kitchen to get some snacks while working? Maybe you should keep them at arms reach; or not. Pop by your nearby value store to grab some snacks and drinks at bargain prices!
