How to set up a home office


4 tips for how to set up your home office

1.Invest in a good computer chair
I’ve used various chairs in the past, priced from $300 upwards. Some had armrests; others had bulky seat cushions (you know the ones that get super dusty) while others were made from weighty and bulky metal frames with single moulded seats. The one thing that all of these computer chairs had in common, was that my backside and legs would feel numb and sore by the end of the day.

By far the most incredibly comfortable, well made, ergonomic computer chair is the Aeron chair by Herman Miller. This chair is not only lightweight, it’s specially designed with different tension stitching on the seat to ensure every part of the body is supported. When I was pregnant and carried extra weight, this was such a pleasure to sit on all day long. Even now I find it hard to sit in any other chair that isn’t a Herman Miller. I can definitely feel the difference!

2.The desk
If you have an excellent adjustable ergonomic chair that allows your body to move closer to the desk, then you don’t have to worry about getting an adjustable desk that can move up and down.

But if you’re like me and have a small space in your home to work with, I would suggest having a vertical style desk. Not only will a vertical computer desk have a small footprint, but it’ll also force you to get up and reach over your head if you need to get something located above your computer screen.

3.Have good lighting
Having proper lighting is essential to avoid the unnecessary strain of the eyes when looking at a computer screen. If you’re lucky to have a lot of natural light in your home office, make sure the light isn’t glaring from behind your computer screen or glaring directly onto your computer screen.

4.Your computer monitor
The top 1/3 of your screen should be above your eye level, with 2/3 below eye level. This means your head is only slightly tilted down when working. We used to work from our desktop computers but this wasn’t mobile enough, so we now plug our laptops into a large LG computer monitor.
