Reimagining Your Office Workspace During the Pandemic
No matter where your home office is located, there are things you can do to make it as comfortable as possible while the era of working from home during a pandemic continues. Once seen as a short-term solution to a temporary problem, it’s becoming more and more apparent that working remotely is going to be the norm for a while. What can you do to make your space more ergonomic and work-friendly?
Here are some tips:
- Location, Location, Location
The spot you are working in now might not be your best option. Take a look around your home and consider other spaces. Something as small as a closet can be converted into a cozy office with a bit of creativity. If you choose a new work spot, make sure it has good Wi-Fi signal to avoid frustration later.
Your comfort plays a major role in your productivity and mood throughout the workday. Temporarily sitting at your dining room table works in a pinch, but for extended use, consider investing in an office chair or a desk. Next, have a seat and evaluate your ergonomic setup, and remember that both chair height and desk height are important. While seated, your wrists should be straight, with your elbows at 90 degrees, and your knees should be level with your hips.
- Organization and Storage Solutions
Not only is it difficult to work with a messy desk, but your disorganized office is on full display during each and every one of your Zoom calls. Take a look around and see where there’s room for organization improvement, like bookshelves or other office accessories that help give your workspace a tidy, professional appearance.
Good office lighting is a factor in a couple important ways: It helps ensure you are clear and not cloaked in shadow during those previously mentioned Zoom calls, and it helps with your overall mental health. If you’re scouting out a new work spot in your home, consider how much natural light it gets, or treat yourself to a new lamp for your desk.
