7 Things You Need to Work From Home Like a Boss

Luzon is under enhanced community quarantine, so most of us are working from the safety of our homes to avoid the spread of the coronavirus disease. This can be a jarring change for some, especially those who are used to dressing up for work and working a 9-6 job in an office. 

To make the transition to this work arrangement a little bit easier, we’ve compiled a list of essentials to make sure you’re productive yet comfortable . Check out these seven things you need to work from home like a boss! 

A Good Pair of Headphones

Face to face meetings are officially cancelled as social distancing is being implemented to avoid the spread of the virus. Phone calls and video calls are your new best friend when it comes to meetings so make sure you can hear and can be heard clearly. JBL’s T500 Headphones promises good sound. It also has a one button remote so you can easily control your music and calls!

With this table, you can sit back, relax, and work hard on your bed.

Working at home can be more distracting, so try to set a time limit for yourself. The pomodoro technique just might be the method for you. Time your work for 25 minutes, and then take a 5-minute break to avoid burning out. Use this simple alarm clock to keep track of time because opting for your phone can be distracting.

It’s nice to be reminded of the tasks you have to do for the day. To make sure you’re on top of your daily tasks, write them down on a whiteboard and make it face you for the whole of the day so you won’t forget! It’s also satisfying to cross of a task from the list as you slowly make your way through your work.
