    28 Products You Need If You Love Being Comfy At Work

    Once you try this cult-favorite rolling fidget toy and reviewer-beloved memory foam seat cushion, you'll never go back.

    1. An undetectable mouse jiggler for folks working at home who need to stay "active" on Gchat, Teams, or Slack and sometimes want to dash out to use the bathroom or walk the dog without doing the whole "BRB, BACK IN A BIT!!" song and dance every time they dare to get up from their desk.

    Promising review: "Like everyone else, I stumbled upon this product because of a TikTok I saw. Setup was extremely easy and I'm pleased to say that my Teams green light is on all the time now. Workers of the world, unite." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in four styles). 

    2. A memory foam seat cushion so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone that you'll finally stop losing sleep over your love-hate relationship with your office chair. People with lower back, sciatica, and tailbone pain *swear* by it. 

    Promising review: "A few weeks into working from home five days a week I started having a lot of hip/leg/back pain. I have a good Herman Miller task chair that had been fine for one to two days of WFH a week, but wasn't working for me full time. In the early afternoons my lower back would start cramping. I did some research and bought this pillow and it immediately helped! I also took it on a two week road trip since a three-day road trip earlier this year had made a mess of my lower body that lingered for weeks — and no pain! What really drove me to write this review was that yesterday, unknowingly, I worked all day sitting on my chair without my cushion. I had removed it to use as a spare chair at my dinner table and forgot to put it back. At the end of the day hip was aching and I realized why! Today it's back on my chair and I'm already feeling better." —Lorene

    Get it from Amazon for $28.12+ (clip the "20% off" coupon on the product page for this price; available in three colors). 

    3. A portable, easy-to-store standing desk for workers who prefer to be on their feet but don't want to commit to a whole fancy setup in any one given place. This one is fully height adjustable at both height *and* angle to give you the most personalized, comfortable view. 

    Reviewers also use it to work with their computers on their laps while sitting on the couch or in bed! 

    Promising review: "Perfect for hybrid work. My husband works from home periodically, so he doesn’t want a permanent workstation, but it’s perfect on a table for standing desk or in a large chair or ottoman as a lap desk. We fold it up and stow it easily when not in use." —D

    Get it from Amazon for $36.69+ (available in two sizes). 

    4. And an investment-worthy standing desk anti-fatigue mat designed to keep you comfortable on your feet all day — unlike the ordinary comfort mats designed for kitchen use, this comes equipped with unique indentations and a cushioned terrain to automatically adjust to (and encourage!) small movements and shifts throughout the day.

    Promising review: "Really nice mat, helps with leg and back fatigue. I stand up 50 percent of the time at my desk and I can feel the difference in the two weeks I've had this product. It seems to have the right balance of comfort and support. It is a little pricey compared to other brands, but it is very solidly made and it appears it will last a long time. Worth the extra money, in my opinion." —Jeff

    Get it from Amazon for $89+ (clip the $10 off coupon on the product page for this price; available in three colors). 

    Psst — you can check out a mini version for more compact spaces for $69 on Amazon! 

    5. A set of affordable, highly popular wireless Bluetooth earbuds that reviewers compare to AirPods, but arguably better — they're ridiculously comfy on the ears, making them perfect for in-office days when you're trying to get in the zone and for at-home days when you're in constant Zoom calls.

    These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge). 

    Promising review: "I work remotely and use these for all-day Zoom calls. I love the quality, comfortable fit, sound and noise cancelling features. I will say the noise cancelling isn't 100% proof, but I'm not looking for that. I want to be able to hear around me in case someone in my house needs me." —Ali R. 

    Get it from Amazon $19.99+ (get this price by clipping the 15% off coupon on the product page; available in five colors).

    6. A pair of compression gloves designed to help alleviate pain from carpal tunnel and arthritis, so you can type at your keyboard in the various positions from your remote and in-office work without an internal monologue of "ow OW ow owwwww" for the majority of your workday.

    ComfyBrace is a small business that specializes in personal care products like compression gloves, posture correctors, and wrist braces. 

    Promising review: "I love these gloves, I’m actually wearing them right now. I have a degree in computer science which means that I’m constantly using my hands to code and mess around on computers. I use a computer at home and at work. By the end of the day my hands are sore and they hurt. These gloves work miracles. Before bed I put these on and I wear them all night. I get a good night's sleep when I wear them and I can tell when I forget to put them on because I sleep awful. I also like how easy it is to wash them. I hand wash but I’ll admit a couple of times I’ve just thrown in the washing machine because I was too tired to hand wash and they turn out completely fine, literally the same as if I would’ve hand washed. I’m 26 and I wear these gloves. My grandma is 69 and she wears these gloves. We both love these gloves very much!" —BritMcConnell

    Get a pair from Amazon for $19.97 (available in three sizes).

    7. A pair of Target's internet-famous "sweatpants for work," which is what a lot of reviewers are calling these professional-looking glorified lounge pants. They have a pull-on elastic waist and are made with a stretchy, soft fabric blend perfect for working from home, but also have a straight ankle cut and high waist that make them office-ready attire.

    Promising review: "These pants are so comfortable. They look like dress pants, but feel like sweatpants! I can chase after my kids in these and still look pulled together. I reach for them just as often as I grab my leggings." —JCastle 

    Get them from Target for $25 (available in sizes XS–4X and heather grayblack pinstripenavy, and light gray, and four solid colors).

    8. A Wi-Fi extender for your home so you can work from *all* your comfiest spaces (read: the couch, the other couch, the bed, the couch again) without worrying about the signal cutting out on you mid-Zoom. 

    Promising review: "This is a great product. We live in an old farmhouse and even though we have the fastest and highest internet service, we just couldn't get the signal throughout the entire house, or even our upstairs. But once we plugged in this range extender, we now have our 5G throughout the entire house and even the garage! It was super easy to install. No hassles. Easy to follow instructions." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $33.49.

    9. A set of Monkey Noodles designed as a quiet sensory toy that stretches, pulls, twirls, wraps, *and* squeezes, helping calm anxiety during video conferencing marathons that laugh in the face of Dolly Parton's "Nine To Five."

    Impresa is a small business that specializes in home, office, and kitchen solutions. 

    Promising review: "This is my absolute favorite fidget! I’m an adult with autism and ADHD. I carry one around with me everywhere I go. It definitely assists me in staying calm/still while I’m at work. I’ve recommended it to several friends!" —KaelynnVP

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $8.99.

    10. Plus the "Ono Roller," a compact fidget toy specifically designed for adults that helps to encourage focus and relieve stress and anxiety with its frictionless, noiseless rolling. It's a bit more expensive than competitors, but reviewers love the satisfaction of the rolling feeling and attest to how ridiculously durable it is against even the most frequent of fidgeting.

    Ono is a small business specializing in compact, work-friendly fidgets for focus and stress relief. 

    Promising review: "I have had ADHD since I was a small child, and this is the only thing I've ever found that helps me focus. It's quiet, durable, and keeps my mind occupied so I can focus (ADHD people will understand what I mean by that). A bit pricey, but worth every penny in my opinion!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in five colors and in a junior size for kids and people with smaller hands). 

    11. A desk-friendly HappyLight sunlamp that will be both a literal and metaphorical ~light of your life~ — this adjustable light can help improve your sleep, mood, and energy levels, particularly if you're working in a situation where you don't get a lot of direct sunlight.

    Promising review: "I work from home at night. I never see the light of day during the winter. This light has been a joy to have and gives great light at my desk to work with with the benefit of mimicking sun exposure. It’s very easy to use and to replace bulbs." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $53.99 (clip the $6 off coupon on the product page for this price).

    12. A portable dual monitor for your laptop to give your screen thaaaaat much more space to breathe — a real perk when your home and/or office situation might change at the drop of a hat, but you still want the comfort of having all your tabs open and organized. 

    This is compatible with Mac, PC, and Chrome laptops between 13 and 17 inches, and attaches with device-safe metal plates. The magnetic pull is strong enough for you to take your laptop from room to room without undoing your setup, but also easy enough to remove that you can tuck everything into a backpack quickly when you're on the move. You can even rotate the display to your preferences, if you want it at an angle!

    Promising review: "I’ve been using the SideTrak for a week now and it has been an absolute game-changer for me. The instructions were easy to follow, and installation a breeze. The SideTrak was first whipped into action during a 2 hour long ride in my car as a passenger, and I was utterly impressed with how much I got done with ease, in that amount of time! Additionally, I’ve gotten a lot more use out of the SideTrak than I imagined — such as when I’m lounging in my backyard, kitchen, living room, pool... anywhere outside of the room in my office, the possibilities are endless! I’m all about efficiency and maximizing my time and the SideTrak has contributed largely in those areas. Thank you." —Ratana K.

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99 (available in two colors). 

    13. A tiny (and delightfully portable!!) cactus humidifier that operates on a USB cable, so you can keep the air in today's designated computer space cozy and hydrating while you conquer the 57 tabs open on your monitor one by one.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these little humidifiers! I bought my first one to use at my desk at work, because the air is so dry in the building, and it has been a godsend. Not only does it help keep my sinuses happier, but it looks great too. I bought a second one for my nightstand that I use while I sleep at night, and they both work perfectly." —Selene Schneider

    Get it from Amazon for $13.89+ (available in three styles).

    14. An adjustable foam footrest to help alleviate hip, leg, and lower back pain at a *fraction* of the price of a fancy ergonomic chair or other expensive solution. This even flips over to become a "rocking" footrest — a boon for all fidgety, restless office workers everywhere.

    Promising review: "My feet have found heaven! After just over a year of working from home, I've finally decided to invest in some home office upgrades. I was on the fence about a footrest, but the new desk chair I had purchased had a few comfort issues, and I thought this foot rest might help address those. I wasn't wrong! From the first moment my feet landed in the plush comfort of the foam, I haven't wanted to take them off of it. As a fairly active person most of my life (basketball, horseback riding, running, etc.) I haven't been kind to my body. My back, knees, hips, and feet have all paid the price. This footrest has helped alleviate much of the
