More and more of us are choosing to work from home, and while that means you can ditch the commute you might find yourself needing to fit out a dedicated home office instead.
When you have a busy workday ahead you don’t want your home office space or a slow internet connection holding you back.
From a comfortable desk chair to the best rural wireless broadband, here are our top tips for setting up your home office.
Find a dedicated space
While working from home it can be easy to blur the lines between your work and home life, to help you retain that balance it’s important to choose a quiet space to set up your home office. Whether that’s the spare bedroom or a corner of your dining room – making sure your space is tidy, well lit and away from disturbances will help you stay productive.
Don’t forget it’s just as important that you can close the door or somehow turn off from ‘work’ mode when you’re off the clock, so keep that in mind when choosing the best spot.
Invest in comfort
While you don’t need to go out and splurge on the most expensive desk chair or desk, comfort is important for your productivity levels and overall daily happiness. You will likely be sitting at your desk for long periods of time and your back will be thankful for a supportive chair and ergonomic desk!
If you’re working from on a regular basis your employer might even supply the appropriate items to help you get your work done.
Create a functional workspace
What will you need everyday to work – this could include items like a computer, extra monitor, printer, phone or stationary. Make sure you have access to these things and that they are set up for working efficiently. Also consider how you could minimise any at home distractions – we love noise blocking headphones, organisational tools that help with priortising tasks and keeping personal phones or devices that might be distracting in another room during work hours.
Ensure you have access to reliable and fast rural wireless broadband
We live in a digital world, and if you’re working from home it’s likely you will need to be online. Setting up a fast and reliable internet connection ensures you can meet the demands of your busy work and personal life.
We would love to get you connected on a fast and reliable rural wireless broadband plan that meets the demands of your lifestyle.
