6 Easy Steps on How-to set-up your Perfect Home Office

Simple ways to organise your workspace to be more productive, but also comfortable.

By iBlockCube Team

Working from home is commonly associated with working with your PJs or pants. Or having more time with your kids and hobbies. Or being able to work in any comfortable spot in your house.

But experienced folks know what is in exchange with these freedoms: distractions. Distractions can ruin your quality of work.

While productive, you also want a comfortable and safe workspace for you. Same as working in an office, you want to set your environment where you can fit in and do your best work.
Setting up your home office is the answer to all these troubles!

The task may be daunting. But trust me, you will have a better workday if you have your own home office rather than working at your dining table.

Let’s start! 

1. Find a distraction-free room or space

It can be a spare room no one is using. If you don’t have a spare room, go for a quiet corner.

Just pick a place that has less traffic. This helps you to focus while you are working.

You can also pick your bedroom. But be mindful - we often associate our bedrooms with sleeping.

2. Put up an Office Desk.

This will be your dedicated workspace.

Put-up everything here that is important to you: 

  • Your Computer and Its accessories
  • Files of current tasks that you’re working on.
  • Audio equipment such as headphones for team communication 

Make sure that everything you need is near you and accessible. This makes your workflow easier.

Also, having an office desk as a dedicated area for work is helpful in building a habit of focus.

Whenever you are at your desk, it signals your brain that you should do nothing in this area aside from work. This will make it easier for you to fight distractions. 

3. Make sure you have (fast) Internet Connection

Whether you are working remote, or you’re an entrepreneur, having an internet connection is a need nowadays.

Moreover, having a fast and stable connection allows you to work smoothly. It also helps you to have efficient communication towards co-workers, clients, and other businesses. 

It would be best if you put your wireless network router near you.

Study says that obstructions such as walls and other wireless devices can hinder Wi-Fi signals to your computer. This results in slower download and upload speeds. 

4. Use a surge protected extension lead to take care of your electrical device

Your computer and internet now is your primary source of income. Having tools that can prevent problems with your devices is essential.

One of the most common problems people using electric devices encounter are electrical surges.

An electrical surge is an excess power caused by lightning or unstable electrical charges.

Since it is an excess electrical charge, it can destroy your device by frying up its important parts. Or worse, it can start a fire in the device and your house.

Use an extension lead to protect your device and prevent fire accidents.

The surge protection mechanism diverts the excess electrical charge to the ground. It also prevents the excess electricity to reach your devices through a fuse. 

All of iBlockCube’s extension leads are surge protected. Whether you want more sockets or USB ports, iBlockCube has extension leads that will suit your needs.

5. Find a comfortable chair.

Depending on your job, you will spend most of the time in your chair working.

Invest in a durable and comfortable chair that is comfortable enough to keep you relaxed. 

You also want to have a chair that is relative to the height of your desk. This is to ensure that you work while still having proper posture. 

Having good posture while working will prevent you from suffering from neck and back pain in the long run. 

What is the proper posture while working in the front of my computer?

Eyes: The topmost part of your monitor should be aligned with your eyes. It is advisable to keep your distance from your screen at arm's length.
For Laptop users, you can use a stand or use other things that can elevate your laptop.

Back:
Use a chair that can support your back. Avoid slouching or leaning forward. 

Arms and wrists: keep your arms and wrists supported to avoid strain. Use a separate keyboard and mouse to keep your arms so you can work relaxed.
This also to avoid heat and fatigue you can experience from the body of your laptop. 

6. Personalize and optimize.

Lastly, you want to give life and identity to your home office.

Are you feeling off sometimes? Put up motivational and inspirational posters.

Do you want to refresh your mind and experience vitality while working? Put succulents on your desk or put plants within your room.

Are you having problems with regards to your communication with peers? Invest in a quality pair of headphones.

Put anything in your home office that keeps you going, inspired, and productive. 

Conclusion

Working from home is supposed to be productive and fun. But preparing for it can bring you joy too.

You just need some tools and tweaks at your home to have your perfect home office.

Again, these are the steps!
1. Find a distraction-free room or space
2. Put up an Office Desk.
3. Make sure you have (fast) Internet Connection
4. Use a surge protected extension lead to take care of your electrical device
