Desk Setup and Productivity

Take a look around you.

Does looking at your desk give you a surge of motivation and drive to tackle your work?

Or do you get instantly overwhelmed?

Optimizing your desk setup is more than just aesthetics—it's about creating an environment that supports your focus and productivity: ultimately, it’s about enjoying the process of working hard.

The first step to creating the perfect home office environment is decluttering; we discussed all that here.

In this week’s issue, we’ll run through the best desk setup checklist for productivity, so you’ll optimize your space to work in your favor.

Let’s get into it.

Best tips to build an awesome (+very effective) desk setup

💡Natural Light
Position your desk near a window to reap all the benefits of natural light.
Complement it with a well-placed desk lamp to ensure your workspace is well-lit and conducive to productivity. Your eyes will also thank you.

⬆️Standing Desk
Tell me an invention of the last decade that is better than a standing desk – I’ll wait. A standing desk will do wonders for your health and boost your energy to tackle those extra difficult days.

📱Tablet or Digital Diary
You need a notebook, and what is better (and more versatile) than a tablet or digital diary? Plus, bonus points for taking care of the environment by saying no to the endless piles of paper.

🪑Ergonomic Chair
Your chair is the foundation of your desk setup. It’s the biggest investment you can make for your productivity – and for your lower back.
Choose an ergonomic chair that supports proper posture, reduces strain on your body, and allows you to work for extended periods without discomfort.

⌨️🖱️Ergonomic Keyboard and Mouse
An ergonomic chair is step number one, but an ergonomic keyboard and mouse is where you reach another level of comfort. They fully support your wrists and hands, allowing for a more comfortable typing and navigation experience.

🌿Office Plants
Plants improve air quality, reduce stress levels, and increase productivity. Choose low-maintenance options like succulents or small potted plants that thrive in an office environment.

🖥️🖥️Dual Monitors
Consider investing in dual monitors if you want to work faster and more efficiently. Two screens allow you to view multiple documents simultaneously, compare information effortlessly, and streamline your workflow. Once you try it, you will probably never want to work with one screen again.

🎧Noise-Canceling Headphones
In a bustling office or a noisy home environment, noise-canceling headphones can be a game-changer. By blocking out external distractions, you create a serene soundscape that promotes concentration and deep work.
