    1. This Echo Dot, which is an alarm clock and an all-round personal assistant, so that you can multitask and get things done faster with minimal effort.

    Amazon

    Will this Echo Dot replace all your co-workers during your new WFH sitch? Yes. You can use it to find out what the weather's like, what time it is in a foreign country or hear what's going on around the world — so that you'll be reaching a new level of multitasking and productivity while simultaneously having someone — albeit a robot — to talk to.

    2. This UE Boom Speaker that you can use to play your favourite songs around the house or to listen to a podcast while you work.

    Promising Review: "Anyone with a UE Boom will tell you the same thing — they'll never use another speaker again and there's a reason for that! This Bluetooth speaker is waterproof, has great bass and 15 hours of battery life. I also love having this little thing somewhere near me in the house playing music or podcasts while I'm working for white noise."

    3. This time-marked water bottle, because water breaks are just as important at home as they are in the office.

    Amazon

    One of the first things I noticed while working from home was the lack of water I'd been drinking. This one-litre water bottle indicates times throughout the day, so that you can turn drinking water into a habit. The bottle also tells you why you should be drinking water — which will hopefully guilt you into prioritising hydration.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $28.99.

    4. This 60-day high performance planner — because when you know what your goals are, getting out of bed is a whole lot easier.

    6. These Sound PEATS wireless earbuds, because everything is easier when music is involved and these little guys make playing it easy as.

    Mariela Summerhays / BuzzFeed

    These earbuds run for four hours per charge and have smart touch technology, so you can control your tunes and answer calls without reaching for your phone.

    Promising review: "I've been dragging my heels to make the move to wireless earbuds — I thought for sure I'd lose one and that having to charge them would be a massive inconvenience. My husband bought these as a gift and now I love the convenience of not having to hold my phone when out and about, should I want to listen to my music. Their holder has magnetic properties, so when charging or just being stored, you don't have to worry about the earbuds falling out and getting lost."

    Promising review: "LIFX lighting is the best purchase I've ever made – both for myself and as gifts for all my friends. Not only can you easily create really fun environments with lighting (party mode, relaxing mode, movie night mode), but it's also really good for things such as sleep hygiene. At 9 p.m. I turn on orange/red lighting and my body knows it's time to wind down and it's much easier to fall asleep. It's perfect if you need to switch your brain to work mode as well. There's a sleep timer, fun effects and a setting that makes the lighting react to the music you're playing! It's so easy to use and honestly it makes being at home so much more of a VIBE."

    14. This white noise machine, that encourages your best sleep, which will probably have you waking up in a much better mood.

    Promising review:
    "Light sleeper, apartment dweller: This sound machine literally changed my life. I moved into an apartment for the first time in my life one year ago and hearing my neighbours move around at night used to make me so anxious. This little machine blurs it all out! I CANNOT sleep without it now, it's the best purchase I have ever made and I would seriously recommend any light sleepers purchase it. My partner now loves it too."

    15. And this wake-up light alarm clock to ease you awake after your flawless slumber.

    Amazon

    This alarm clock simulates the sunrise and gradually gets brighter during a 10-60 minute period before your actual alarm goes off, so that by the time it does, you’re ready to hop out of bed.

    You can choose natural sounds for you to wake up to, like birds singing, ocean waves, a steady stream, beeping, wind bells, soft music, piano music or FM radio if you'd prefer some bangers to start your day.

    16. This cork yoga mat, because meditation and mindfulness actually works when you do it properly. Plus— big STRETCH!

    Cotton On

    During self-isolation, I've been doing 10 minutes of bedtime yoga each night and not only have I become more flexible, I've found that my back and hips are less sore and I sleep much easier — which is amazing, considering my anxiety levels are currently through the roof.
