Five Work from Home Essentials for the Ultimate Home Office Lifestyle

For many of us, the work from home lifestyle that began a few years ago is still in effect. Even if you have returned to the office in a hybrid schedule, it is more important than ever to keep your home office well appointed, so that it doesn’t turn into a catch-all space full of random clutter. With a few key upgrades, you can refresh your home office so it remains a great place to get things done!


  1. A Good Chair and Desk

If you’re still doing your work perched at the kitchen table, do your posture a favor and commit to having a dedicated workspace. With and ergonomic chair and desk you will feel the difference --  not only in your back health, but your concentration.


  1. Noise Cancelling Earbuds

Speaking of concentration, it may shock you when you experience the difference between regular earbuds and buds that have good noise cancellation. The Technics AZ80 True Wireless Earbuds offer a highly customizable sound experience through the Technics Audio Connect app. Not only can you tailor the amount of noise cancellation, you can adjust the quality of the the sound that come s through – with Attention mode you can hear voices around you but not street noise, for example.


  1. A Good Coffee Maker

When you commit to working from home long-term it’s time to double down on the beverages. If your coffee maker has been wheezing through the past few years, isn’t it time for an upgrade? A dedicated coffee ritual starts the day off right, filling the home with that incredible aroma and setting you up for success. The same holds true for you matcha drinkers out there! If whisk is starting to wear out, it’s time to pick up a new one.


  1. A Landline Phone

When you work from home, it’s more important than ever to keep that work/life balance. Why take phone calls for even Zoom calls from your cell phone? If your plan is to be off-camera, you can choose to dial in from a landline phone. The connection is so much clearer, without the glitching than you would experience on an internet call. Also, you can choose a home office phone with a cordless handset, and/ or pair your phone with a headset or Bluetooth headphones. Check the features of the landline phones you’re shopping for – they offer so many amazing features, including advanced call blocking.


  1. A House Plant

Sometimes, you hole-up in your home office and don’t get a chance to go outside and get a breath of fresh air.  So, why not bring a little bit of outside, inside.  Not only will adding some real greenery to your space help your indoor air quality, but research has shown that having indoor plants have positive effects on your mental wellbeing – like reduced stress, and increased productivity.  At the very least it will brighten up your space, so go ahead and greenify that home office!
