I have been working remotely for nearly 3 years now, but have never had a dedicated space to work in my home. Some days I would work at the kitchen table. Others I would work on the couch. When I didn't have meetings, I would usually go to a coffee shop to get out of the house. The lack of routine and work rules started to really bother me. Every day I wasn't exactly sure where I would be working and for how long.
This week I moved into a new house and, at the recommendation of a few co-workers, decided to set up a room that is purely dedicated to working. As weird as it sounds, this is the first time I've had a desk, an office chair, and defined space.
I am less than a week in but I already notice a change in focus. Whatever subconscious forces are at play seem to set my brain for productivity. I am still in the process of building the room completely how I want it, but I feel like I am going to do the best work of my life in this space.
I have a few pieces of art and an organizational shelve on the way and am looking for a recommendation for a remote working office.
If you primarily work out of a home office, what products or habits help you do your best work? Thanks in advance!
