Maybe you’ve accepted a new job that allows you to work from home, or your current job dictates you can do this a few days a week. This certainly gives you more time to spend in your new One Sophia condo, but how do you do it? Here’s a simple step by step guide.

Find a Space For It

The first order of business is to find a spot for your work setup. The space should be adequate and conducive for getting work done, with minimal interruptions and distractions. It’s recommended you keep your rest space separate- that said, a good spot in a condo will be the living room or a dedicated room.

Get a Table That Can Fit Your WFH Setup

You can use an existing table as long as it would fit your computer and all the hardware you need, e.g., a printer, second monitor, or charging strip. If not, opt for desks made for work. Those with adjustable heights are better since they can accommodate your requirements and ensure you stay within the ergonomic range.

Make Sure You Can Plug All the Equipment

It’s best to set up a work environment near a wall outlet or power source. Find an extension cord or an uninterruptible power system in case of emergencies or when you need to plug in more than one device. The same goes for all computer accessories with a USB hub.

Upgrade to an Ergonomic Chair

Invest in an ergonomic chair as you’ll be sitting for long periods of time. There are a variety of chairs and brands you can choose from depending on your budget. The important thing is that it supports your back and has lumbar support and enough cushion so you can sit comfortably.
