A well-organized work space allows you to efficiently work on your computer with the greatest of ease (or maybe binge watch shows on Netflix while you scroll through your Facebook feed in the middle of the day. Whatever productive and efficient mean to you. No judgement). I’m showing you how to have both energy and workspace efficiency with these 3 ways to make your home office more productive:
Here are 3 ways that you can easily change up your home office to make it run smoothly:
1. Have your laptop monitor at the correct viewing angle
Do you know the health benefits of using a standing desk? Instead of going out to buy a dedicated one, create one yourself with the Loft for MacBook. Whether you’re sitting or standing, it’s important to have your laptop monitor at the right viewing height to have the most productive work environment. The Loft for MacBook has an open design to improve airflow and allow you to store things underneath. The rubber grip on the top means that your sweet laptop won’t be sliding off anytime soon.
2. Have more devices plugged in to your computer
An external hard drive, a wireless mouse, and a flash drive are just some of the things that I regularly have plugged in to the USB ports on my laptop. With only 2 ports, this really doesn’t work very well. Belkin’s SuperSpeed USB 3.0 4-Port Hub allows me to back up my data to an external hard drive quickly and efficiently. I can also charge my mobile devices more quickly — 10 times faster than USB 2.0!
3. Use Conserve plugs to conserve electricity, and efficiently charge and protect your devices
The SurgePlus USB Swivel Charger allows you to charge 3 devices plus 2 mobile devices. The swivel base allows you to plug this charger in a wall socket and still be able to use the bottom plug. The green indicator light tells you when surge protection is active for the 3 surge-protected wall outlets.
Use your smartphone or tablet as a second monitor – look something up quickly on Google or digitally check things off your to-do list without having to open up another tab on your browser or another application on your computer. This will make your home office more efficient – so will not having to wait forever for your devices to charge. That’s where the Conserve Socket comes in. This plug allows you to charge your devices for a set amount of time. The timer can be set for ½ hour, 3 hours and 6 hours. Other features include automatic shutoff to reduce wasted power. The start button on the top means that zero power is drawn until it is pressed.
Use the Conserve Power Switch for things that you don’t need to constantly use. The small size means it will only take up the space of one plug. The switch on the side allows you to only draw power when you need to.
