According to an article in the Ithaca Journal, almost 20 million people in the US do some work for their primary job at home. Less than 20% of people with home offices, however, have them set up the way they would like. (Maybe they’re like me, and their home offices are more like office/living rooms or office/bedrooms).
As the article goes on to point out, it’s important to set up your home office with a style that suits you, and don’t forget ergonomics.
Between computer games, chat rooms, the web, and e-mail, many of us are spending as much–or more–time in front of our home computers as we ever do at the office computers. Ergonomic chairs, desks, keyboards and keyboard trays, mice, and lighting are for home, too. The more time you spend in your home-office, the more important it is to make a comfortable place where you can be productive (or at least, get to the next level…).
So, look around your area. Maybe it’s time for a trip to Office Depot, eh?
