Working from home requires focus and now with quarantine, it is more important than ever to be focused and have a routine. In all honestly, setting a routine can sometimes be hard if you have a toddler or family commitments. But I have learned that having a few things in your workspace makes all the difference. Keep reading below to know what my workspace must-haves are!
1. Daily Planners
Way before I had daily planners, I relied on sticky pads and my notebook. Although they can work sometimes, it’s hard to keep track of things every day. I actually didn’t believe in daily planners until I got my very first one and now I can’t live without it. From little reminders to daily tasks to to-do lists to even grocery list, I keep it all in the planner. There are different planners out there but I love the ones that also include your daily water and food intake. It helps you also keep track of calories. See some of my favorites:
I am not ashamed to say that I have trouble working in a mess. I like to keep my things organized so I don’t have to look at mess when I am working. From books to pens to note pads, I like to have a place for everything. See some of my favorite organizers below:
3. Pens/Pencils/Note Pads
This may sound like common sense but always have basic stationery and always have more than you need in case you run out. I keep dozens of pens and note pads because I use them a lot. Although we live in a world of laptops and phones to keep notes, nothing beats a good reminder on notepads and pens. When I am taking notes to do videos or photos, I always use my notebook and pen. I am a creative person so I like to write out everything in front of me. That’s just me! I am more comfortable in notebooks and stick pads than laptops.
Here are some of my basics that I use working from home. What are your stationary must haves?
