Best Productivity Tips for Working From Home

If you work from home, you’ve probably struggled with distractions a home office offers. The dog wants out. The laundry needs to be done. Your children/significant other/neighbors don’t quite grasp the concept that working at home is still working and you’re finding your time divided between getting things done and trying to fend off interruptions.

How can you make your home office the most productive space it can be? These useful tips will help you reevaluate your home office!

Get a laptop stand

We’ve all seen pictures of people working hunched over their laptops. It doesn’t look healthy at all. Elevating your laptop will be a game-changer for your comfort! Having your screen at eye level will minimize hunching to improve neck and shoulder tension.

Use massage to relieve stiffness

Working from home certainly has its perks but it can also come with a few drawbacks, like poor posture, muscle pain, and increased stress. Fortunately, these are all things that a little massage therapy can successfully address.

Protect your eyes

If you are working from home, you may be spending increased time on screens for video conference calls and presentations. Increased exposure to the blue light our screens cast leads to eye strain, fatigue, and headaches. Luckily, blue light glasses can help reduce digital eye strain.

Maintain good posture

It’s easy to fall into a work slump, quite literally, especially when you don’t have the proper office equipment. Save your back with a posture corrector that you can wear while you work.

Get up and move

It can be tempting to work for hours at a time without taking a break, especially if you’re comfortable with where you are. But it’s important to establish regular breaks throughout the day (and also to schedule your workouts). We suggest setting a timer every hour to remind you to get up and move or stretch.

Love the neck idea. I just bought a weighted neck warmer. I’m on the computer so much hope it helps my stiff neck and shoulders
