Go for a spot that is quiet and far from distractions. Optimize the space To make the area conducive for work, set up proper lighting and ventilation. Natural light typically works best, but if you need artificial lighting, make sure the brightness is just enough to prevent eye fatigue. For ventilation, nothing beats fresh outdoor air so open that window! Ready your furniture Find a desk or table with enough space for your computer, phone, and other essential office supplies. Match it with an ergonomic chair so you can sit comfortably and prevent strain. Try workstation tools like monitor mount, laptop riser, and external keyboard and mouse for your convenience. Manage your mess Remove all sorts of clutter and unimportant stuff from your workstation. Use storage such as small drawers to keep unessential belongings out of sight.

Label you stuff Labels help you save time and energy when finding something from your computer files or file drawers. Give your computer files clear and detailed filenames and sort them into properly labeled folders. Same applies with your physical files. Consider labeling drawers as well so you can access things quick. Making the perfect home workstation for the new normal is easier when you consider your needs and focus on how you can stay productive.
