These days a lot of us are learning to navigate that crazy world called “Work From Home”. It can be especially hard for some, with most of the country also under quarantine, forcing us to play from home too.

Since this is probably new to many people, you may not have that ideal workspace to successfully push out a productive 8+ hour work day. The living room has become your conference room, and the kitchen table has become your desk, but the thought of that “Keeping up with the Kardashians” marathon or staring at a sink full of dishes all day are distractions you don’t want or need. Not only does creating a good workspace help you keep that pre-COVID-19 routine by giving you a consistent and organized place to conduct your business, but it also helps with keeping your mind and body from developing bad habits that can be hard to break once we return to a more normalized world.

Now we do get it, not everyone has the luxury of designating a separate room for a full office, but creating a space within a space is just as good!
