    31 Things To Upgrade Your WFH Setup In 2021

    Because the long-term effects of the current setup are starting to sink in (i.e. back pain).

    1. Sleek desktop shelves to organize distracting workspace clutter so you can skip that part of the day where you dig through a stack of papers just to find your favorite pen.

    2. An under-desk bike for anyone who struggles to squeeze a workout into their busy schedule. Now you can flex your multi-tasking muscles and pedal the day away while you work.

    3. A slim laptop stand that'll raise your laptop closer to eye level, naturally forcing you to sit up straighter and prevent painful hunching.

    4. A compact mug warmer so you can actually sit through your meetings instead of making constant trips to the microwave to keep your coffee at juuuust the right temperature.

    5. A height-adjustable desk cart you can roll around the house that'll allow you to work from anywhere. Conference calls from the couch! Brainstorms from the porch! The possibilities are endless.

    6. A minimalist Zoom meeting door hanger so you can let everyone in the house know you're not to be disturbed without feeling like the town crier. Hear ye, hear ye! My third call of the day starts now!

    7. Memory foam wrist rest pads that provide ergonomic support to help prevent and alleviate wrist pain that might otherwise keep you from getting in ~the zone~.

    8. A mini under-desk foot hammock so you can kick back and think up some promotion-getting greatness.

    9. A tiered storage shelf perfectly sized to fit the printer you never planned on owning, but that your new WFH life now demands.

    10. A plug-in Wi-Fi extender to eliminate internet dead zones and put an end to the constant housemate battle for conference room space (aka the living room) with a signal strong enough to handle a video call.

    11. A lemon-scented cleaning gel that oh-so-satisfyingly lifts dust and crumbs from your keyboard — because we all know you eat lunch (and spill!) while working, and all those food bits end up under your keys.

    12. A desktop whiteboard designed to fit comfortably between a keyboard and a monitor where you can write out all your absolutely-cannot-forget reminders instead of hunting down that sticky note from this morning's meeting.

    13. An adjustable standing desk converter that'll transform any table or desk into an ergonomic work station. Sit, stand, skip — work in a way that's comfortable for you without the investment in a brand-new desk.

    14. A three-sided wall adaptor with six outlets and two USB fast-charging ports so you can quit playing musical chairs with all your devices and any available outlet you can find.

    15. A high-def webcam that'll upgrade video calls with crystal clear video quality and not one, but two microphones! Look like your LinkedIn headshot and not a blob of pixels.

    16. A posture corrector because you've probably spent the last year hunched over your less-than-ideal WFH setup and your spine might be suffering for it. Wear this brace for an hour or two every day to start gaining the muscle memory to self-correct your posture even when not wearing it!

    17. A memory foam lumbar pillow you can strap on to just about any chair to help alleviate back pain and improve posture. Side effects may include your mom not telling you to "Stand-up straight!" next time you see her.

    18. A pair of noise-cancelling wireless headphones to drown out the world and get down to business to the soothing sounds of your favorite true crime podcast.

    19. A stylish USB desk lamp because a little light is good for productivity, and so is a built-in USB charging port.

    20. A highly-effective screen cleaner set for wiping away all the dust, grease, and grime from the hard-fought work wars of seasons past.

    21. A discreet webcam slide cover that can be applied to almost any device for the peace of mind that you're not being spied on — through your camera, anyway.

    22. An ergonomic desk chair made from breathable mesh that tilts, spins, and adjusts to meet your working needs. In this chair, you can close your eyes and almost feel like you're back in the office — breathing in the sweet smell of someone's aggressively fishy leftovers in the microwave.

    23. A pack of adhesive cable clips because crawling under your desk yet again to fetch another fallen charging cord is getting old.

    24. A cooling memory foam seat cushion that'll make you feel ~supported~ even on your longest days.

    25. A souped-up lap desk with a built-in mouse pad, wrist supports, and phone/tablet holders that's basically convinced me there's no reason now to ever leave bed.

    26. An outlet converter dock for anyone with a lot of gadgets but not enough Macbook-friendly dongles to plug them all in.

    27. A velvety foam footrest that brings the floor to you, alleviating pressure on your hips from long hours spent sitting. For restless legs, try flipping it over and using your feet to gently rock back and forth.

    28. A Moleskine smartpen and notebook set to digitize every pen stroke in real time with the Moleskine app. Finally, the ease and satisfaction of handwritten notes, combined with the organization and convenience of digital notes. Oh, your boss wants a meeting recap emailed ASAP? No sweat.

    29. A clip-on ring light so your co-workers can actually see your beautiful face on calls, instead of slightly sinister shadow of pixels.

    30. A dual-sided electronics cleaning tool with a soft-bristled brush on one end and a wedged silicone wiper on the other for clearing your keyboard of the crumbs and gunk from yesterday's lunch.

    31. An adjustable phone stand so you can keep your workplace right-hand man (your phone) at your desk and by your side — plugged-in, charging, and ready for action!
