5 Ways to Stay Productive Working or Schooling From Home

Whether you are working from home or schooling from home, maintaining productivity is a must! Building a better workspace in your home is key for keeping your workflow in check. When you create a workspace that fits your style, comfort needs, and organizational desires, you will become an overall more productive and successful worker.

Here are a few simple considerations that can make all the difference in your home space.
Keep it Tidy!

More than 60% of Americans have expressed that they are negatively impacted by clutter. These numbers make it clear that organization is key to a successful home workspace. With the comforts of home all around you, there’s no need to clog up your workspace with personal effects. The optimal organization goes beyond clearing the clutter. When investing in office furniture, be on the lookout for storage that fits your needs. With endless configurations of drawers, you can hide away your supplies and keep them straightened and organized. Pictured: StandUp Desk with New Open Haning Storage w/Optional Door, Pockets & Hook

Curate Your Space

Creating a comfortable workspace is all in the details. Whether you’re due for a total redesign or in need of a quick revamp, beautifying your existing accessories and furniture pieces can add a personal touch without bringing in unnecessary clutter. With design at the front of everybody’s mind, anything in your office can feature a little bit of artistic flair. Desks, credenzas, and cabinets with modern laminate finishes, along with sleek and stylish seating options, can be tailored to reflect your style. 

Get Comfortable

Don’t underestimate ergonomics when setting up your workspace at home. Reports show that physical discomfort is a driver of discontent in any workplace. As you create your ideal at-home workspace, invest in furniture and accessories that will keep you comfortable during long hours of work. Pictured: Clever Collection, Mid-back Task Chair

Choosing the right chair is the first step towards a happier and healthier workday. With a variety of features, materials and designs, there’s a perfect seat for everyone. Be mindful of Tilt – strike a perfect balance with a chair that features adjustable tilt tension or upgrade to a knee-tilt for a gentle lean that keeps your feet on the floor. Be aware of Lumbar Support – do you need extra lower back support throughout your day? Manually adjustable and self-adjusting lumbar support can create a tailored solution for every sit. Be conscious of Arms – with adjustments available to move your chair’s armrests in every direction, including up, down, side-to-side, and beyond. Choosing the right combination of features is a must.

Set a Schedule

Create a routine for your workday and stick to it. Adding structure to your day will keep you on track to meet deadlines and prevent burnout. Whether you are in the office or at school, you need to have breaks. Make sure you pencil in these breaks daily and do something that will reenergize yourself – Grab a snack from the kitchen or take a walk outside.
