Working remotely has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more companies are embracing the benefits of remote work. However, working from home can also come with its own set of challenges, especially when it comes to creating a comfortable and efficient mobile workstation. Below is a breakdown of absolute essentials to make your work-from-home experience more enjoyable.
One of the most important things to consider when working remotely is having a comfortable and ergonomic chair or at least something similar to a chair. Sitting in a chair that is not designed for prolonged use can lead to back pain and other health problems. Look for a chair that is adjustable, has good lumbar support, and promotes good posture. Here are a couple of options to help alleviate pain when working remotely:
This office chair has a unique feature: a second adjustment lever that lets you lock in your preferred recline angle, giving you the ability to find the perfect, comfortable seating position. Just be prepped to couch of $329, which isn't that bad considering ergonomic chairs easily run into the thousands.
Experience the benefits of gel memory foam with our office chair cushions. They are made with premium gel-infused memory foam and have heat-responsive technology that conforms to the shape of your body for optimal support. Although you won't get customized adjustments, it's great of travel & only $69.
Another essential product for a comfortable and efficient mobile workstation is a good-quality laptop for on-the-go. And, we’re sorry if you were looking for a Windows Laptop.. But, I hate to break it to ya, we’re Apple biased…
It is important to have a device that is powerful enough to handle your work tasks and has a long battery life for on-the-go use. Consider investing in a laptop that has a high-resolution display, fast processing speeds, and a large amount of storage (like the MacBook Pro M2 or MacBook Air M1 (if you want to save some dough).
The new MacBook Air has small improvements that make it stand out. It no longer has the Touch Bar found on the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, but instead has full-size function keys. This makes it easy to make simple adjustments like adjusting the display brightness and volume with just one tap. But more importantly, it's battery life and processing power is on par with the MacBook Pro, thanks to the new M2 & M2 Max Upgrades
The new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro comes with M2 Pro and M2 Max, which are Apple's latest pro silicon chips. These chips offer even more efficient performance and longer battery life for professional users. The M2 Pro and M2 Max are the most powerful and efficient chips for a pro laptop, making the MacBook Pro capable of handling difficult tasks such as effects rendering (6x faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Pro) and color grading (2x faster).
Whether it’s the dog or kids screaming from the top of their lungs, or the noise in the cafe is just too damn high – a good pair of headphones will be a lifesaver (when working remotely). More specifically, noise-canceling headphones help block out background noise, making it easier to focus on your work. They also provide a more immersive listening experience when you’re on a call or video conference.
The AirPods Pro have been improved for a better listening experience. They have advanced noise cancellation and transparency features, which block out more external noise. Spatial Audio technology creates a more personal and immersive listening experience. You can now control the volume by swiping, and the battery lasts for 6 hours on a single charge.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 has the best noise cancellation available. It uses two processors and 8 microphones to block out any background noise. It also automatically adjusts to your surroundings and wearing conditions, which provides true immersion. The sound quality is absolutely amazing, and hands-free calling is clear with the 4 beamforming microphones.
In conclusion, working remotely can be a great way to increase productivity and work-life balance, but it is important to create a comfortable and efficient mobile workstation. Investing in a good-quality chair, laptop, and headphones can make a big difference in your remote work experience. Obviously, there are so many amazing products for working remotely. However, for this post we’d thought we stick to the absolute essentials – so expect a part 2.
