Select the right location

One of the many benefits of a home office is you get to pick the exact location of your work area. Don’t stifle yourself on space since you will be spending the majority of your day here.

Use the guest room if needed, which is mostly vacant and works great if you need privacy while working. Stay out of trafficked areas and find a quiet corner of the house, in case having an entire room is not feasible. If you are working late through the night then the dinning table is also a good idea.

Choose the right furniture

Choose furniture that serves your purpose. Don’t compromise on a good chair. Show yourself some love while picking out a well-designed, ergonomically-correct chair, as you don’t want to end up feeling sore and having back aches at the end of the day.

Accessorize

Who says work should not be fun? Feel free to choose accessories that enhance the comfy feeling of your home office. Coffee mugs, trendy notepads and sticky notes are all great ideas to get cosy while working. In fact, you should feel great while working, especially when you have the privilege to design your home office. Creating a homely atmosphere can lend a sense of familiarity to your work and increases your efficiency.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
