    7. A set of colored pens perfect for starting a bullet journal or writing color-coded notes.

    8. A foldable and portable standing desk so you can get on your feet when you feel a nap attack sneaking up. It'll also make working on the couch or bed feel a bit comfier.

    9. A spinning paperweight to make a decision for you so you don't spend a whole day debating whether to do something or not.

    10. A Chrome extension that'll restrict the amount of time you can spend on procrastination websites. After you use up your allotted time, those websites are blocked for the rest of the day.

    18. A pair of dusting slippers that'll make it super easy to polish the floors — meaning, you'll have zero excuses to avoid cleaning!
