To minimize your risk of losing precious time and money, eliminate the threat of a crash and keep your network and IT services up to date as soon as possible.  Also keep a regular maintenance schedule for best results.

Interior Design

Keep the space around you clean and tidy, and free from clutter to help you stay focused while working from home.

You will be able to keep your head in a clear space that’s conducive to productivity. Ensure that your office area is open and cool with plenty of air cleaning plants. Houseplants help to regulate the air in your home by absorbing carbon monoxide and releasing oxygen.  Adding some foliage around your workspace could work wonders where you work by:

  • Adding comfort
  • Reducing stress
  • Creating a cleaner environment

Adjusting the height of your furniture can also help give your office space a more relaxed feel and provide ease and comfort.

When you’re working from home you must take into account the effects of discomfort and potential for injury.  If you’re already experiencing pain, you should seek the advice of a health professional.  In the meantime, you can purchase a comfortable chair and suitable desk.

A good chair will allow you to adjust the height of the armrests.  Doing that keeps your spine in an upright position and also avoids curving your neck and back forward which puts pressure on the cervical vertebrae in your neck (which can lead to an array of problems).

By following these tips, you should be on a correct path to achieving long-term comfort when working from home.
