Now is an excellent time to take advantage of all your backyard has to offer. Sunlight, fresh air, and blue skies are hard to come by these days, but there is an abundance right outside the backdoor. And while your work from home set up might be a thing of beauty right now, that doesn’t mean you can’t take it to the next level. Try working outside, even just for a little bit. It’ll make your day that much better, and provide you with fresh air and fresh ideas. Here’s what you need to get all set up.
FOR HAVING A COMFORTABLE PLACE TO SIT
Purple Royal Seat Cushion
No matter what kind of chair you're sitting on outside, this seat cushion will transform it into the desk chair of your dreams. It will ergonomically help you sit up straighter, and will make any chair comfortable as it can be. Plus, it comes with a cover so it won’t get dirty out there.
FOR SOME PEACE AND QUIET
Sennheiser PXC 550-II Headphones
Whether there’s street noise, construction, or dogs barking their heads off, noise cancelling headphones are a great idea for if things get a little loud out there. These headphones from Sennheiser are extremely lightweight, so even if it gets a little hot, you’ll be able to wear them in comfort.
FOR STAYING CONNECTED
Rock Space WiFi Extender
You’re probably fine, but just in case, it’s a good idea to have a WiFi extender so you don’t drop out of that Zoom meeting on accident. This will increase the range your router reaches so you can stay connected, even while you’re outdoors.
FOR KEEPING BUGS AT BAY
Repel Citronella Candle
I am currently covered in mosquito bites because I tried this without a citronella candle. Now though, the mosquitos are kept away and I’m able to work with no distractions. Except for that one itch.
FOR SUN PROTECTION
You definitely don’t want to show up for your next Zoom meeting with a gnarly sunburn. Not only will this sunscreen help protect you from...the sun… it’s also oil free, so you won’t break out either.
FOR STAYING COOL
It’s important to stay cool, no matter where you are. This fan is wireless, so you can bring it anywhere, and it’ll help simulate a cool spring breeze, even if there isn’t one.
FOR A NICE COOL GLASS OF LEMONADE\
Bormolli Rocco Glass Pitcher
What would working outside be without a nice glass of lemonade. This pitcher will keep you refilling your glass again and again, as you enjoy your new setup. In fact, you might not ever need to leave. You have everything you need out here.
