These days, the vast majority of us spend far more time working from our home desks than ever before. Doing so introduces an array of challenges that you may not have had to consider at the office, where for the most part, everything is set up for you. Rather than walking around a busy, social environment, where you can convene in the break room and bounce ideas face to face in a meeting, you’re asked to stare at a screen in your living room for eight straight hours. Some of you have kids running around, while others have no other humans in the space to distract you from the bluish glow of the computer. Even if you commute, ensuring you have a workstation that sets you up for success is crucial for productivity—not to mention the quality of your work, your health, and your happiness!
Certain aspects of creating an excellent desk set-up may seem obvious: hot coffee and plenty of available pens, for example. But the most critical factors require a little more mindfulness. It’s easy to get lost in the monotony of the workday without taking the time to check in on how you feel, your posture, your light, and your air quality, to name a few essential elements.
