Working from home certainly has its benefits. You can sleep in a little longer, wear pajama pants (or no pants) from Monday through Friday, and avoid your office nemesis, but it’s also a huge adjustment! Work-life balance is essential in order to prevent burnout and these home office finds are here to help you out!
Having a workspace that you actually enjoy and is incredibly functional truly helps. It is all about function and comfort right? Just as much as we care about the fashion and function of our clothes, our environment matters JUST as well!
And an ideal home office workspace will help with the mental and productivity! While some of you have been adding plants to your home, some have been completely redecorating!
To help you out, here are ten finds that we recommend (and use) to help you toward home office bliss.

Put your best face forward with some great lighting! Currently loving this Video Conference Lighting Kit by Lumecube, made especially for remote workers. It has everything you need to look polished and professional and is compatible with both laptops and desktop computers.
Get creative and have a little fun when choosing your mousepad! Just because it’s functional doesn’t mean it has to be boring. We love the unique shape and vibrant color of this mousepad from the Etsy shop, Felt Planet. Available in 2 sizes, and a plethora of colors!

A functional desk is KEY! You gotta have space for all your gadgets, right? Pick an office desk that fits your needs. We love this spacious L-shaped desk by Joss & Main, with built-in storage and shelving!
A laptop stand is an easy way to prevent neck and back strain; by keeping your laptop screen at eye level, instead of having to constantly look down toward the screen. In addition to avoiding all those aches and pains, having a laptop stand also helps with the airflow if your laptop- preventing it from overheating, as well!
This practical and pretty laptop stand is a steal, at only $24.99! It’s available in 6 different colors/patterns.

Let’s face it, times are stressful these days! Give yourselves the gift of relaxation, and have a bottle of CBD tincture handy! CBD can help with anxiety, pain relief, and can even help you get those creative juices flowing! We love Reverie’s tinctures, they come in three different flavors: spearmint, lemon and natural!
And don’t worry, they are completely safe to use throughout the workweek!

Having a comfortable office chair is so important!
It’s where you likely will be sitting, hard at work for the majority of your day- so why not invest in something comfortable and stylish?? Our pick is this gorgeous blue velvet swivel chair from Wayfair! It has a high back, for elevated comfort, as well as adjustable seat height.
We like that it’s armless, so we won’t feel too confined, too! This chair is also plus size friendly, with a weight capacity of 380 pounds!
What did you think of our finds? While we are staying safe at home, why NOT make it comfy and enjoyable?
Ultimately, depending on your needs, everyone’s at home office space will look a little different.
Along with these must-haves, we recommend surrounding yourselves with the things that make you happy (like framed pics of loved ones, your favorite scents) to help ground you, and make working from home a little easier and decrease your stress.
