Working from home is more common than ever right now. Due to COVID-19, those lucky enough to have kept their jobs and worked remotely are learning how to function from home. It’s not for everybody. Some thrive in an office, some thrive at home. One thing is for sure, we all need a comfortable space to work from, especially at our homes, which are usually filled with wonderful distractions. We need to create fun, inspiring, and comfy spaces for our minds to ease up and go to work. With Prime Day, today we’re focusing on Amazon’s deals for people working from home.
Work in Bed Comfortably – $54.90
Hitting keys on one’s laptop in bed isn’t always ideal. It’s a quick and easy way to get some wrist cramps one day, too, if you’re not typing correctly. To make yourself a little more comfortable working from bed, and possibly more productive, try out an adjustable laptop stand. You’ll be less likely to spill any unwanted soda or food on your laptop.
Cleaning Gel – $7.99
Cleaning gel may be a little less obvious as a tool to work from home, but it’s often necessary. The more dirt and dust your computer collects, the more sense of clutter it creates. With a clean and presentable set of keys, make your computer easier on the eyes. Just as one would clean their workstation at work, clean your keys and screen.
Rest Your Bunions – $19.99
We can’t stress the importance of working comfortably from home. If one isn’t comfortable, they’re likely going to be less productive. Instead of shifting your feet around constantly under your desk and screwing with your posture, go with a footrest. It’s such a simple, small but pivotal addition to a workspace. It’ll help you maintain a strong posture, which is important at home or at an office.
Heating Pad Never Hurt Nobody – $43.96
Anybody who spends a lot of time working on their feet or off could use a heating pad. When your back is cramping or feels tight, a good 30-minutes of heat will help relieve the tension. Although this particular heating pad looks like a shirt out of a sci-fi movie, it “covers the neck and shoulders, back, providing therapeutic heat and vibrating massage to help relieve pain associated with muscle aches, stiffness, tightness, muscle spasms, and cramps Chronic pain.”
Take a Break – $16.80
A popular work-from-home accessory on Amazon, believe it or not, is a mini basketball hoop. We all need breaks from work, and as someone with a mini basketball hoop at home, I can confirm they are a good way to take your mind off work and relieve some stress. The big seller on Amazon is currently on sale and absolutely worth adding to your home, either for work or fun or both.
The Mini Shelf – $22.99
An organized space can lead to an organized mind. As someone who’s had stacks of books lying around on the floor and coffee tables, it’s best to keep important workbooks on your desk and insight. Keep inspiring books there as well, whether from artists or athletes or other figures you appreciate.
Get Inspired – $24.99
Laugh all you want at an inspirational calendar, but keeping words of wisdom and inspiration around one’s workspace can provide motivation. Create a positive space for yourself to work. Cover it with your heroes. I do. To do so, a calendar with a daily note of wisdom and 365 different photos may help do the trick. Plus, 10% of profits from this calendar go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Get in the Workout – $17.99
Working from home means a lot of time lying down and sitting down, which is probably why Amazon counts workout gear as work from home accessories. To work from home and stay motivated, a good 30 minutes to an hour of exercise a day will help keep you motivated and focused. Resistance bands are a good option for home that doesn’t take up much space.
A Big Boy Desk – $127.71
Desks don’t come cheap. They almost never do. Most writers, especially the most experienced, would recommend one if a writer has space. Of course, you don’t need to be a writer to need a desk, but a respectable desk and work station does help provide a sense of normalcy when working, especially if you’re not used to working from home.
A Comfy Chair – $150
No desk is complete without a chair. One of Amazon’s bestsellers in that department, the Modway Articulate Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair, is well over half off at the moment. It’s a total steal of a deal that comes in a variety of colors. The chair features “reliable ergonomic support, Articulate comes with a breathable mesh back, passive lumbar support, and generously padded and contoured 6” thick mesh seat cushion.”
