The future of work is remote, as far as 2020 is concerned that is. Our homes are comfortable in different ways our office working stations are. For most of us, its a challenge fighting the urge to lounge in bed all day, and with the warm Philippine weather it’s getting increasingly difficult to focus. This is all the more reason why you should assign a permanent workspace so you can set up your home office and concentrate.
To help with your remote work conditions, invest in products that would give you enough comfort throughout the day. These ergonomic items promote good posture and will benefit your health and concentration in the long run.
