Physical Tools You Need for Working Remote

Danielle Caudill, founder of Dotcom Marketing, suggests to immediately get yourself in the zone for productivity with a large cup of coffee in the morning so you begin your day at your desk (after you wash your hands 12 times) on an energetic note!

🎧 Noise-canceling headphones

If you have kids at home this is a must! Put those headphones on and nothing will exist outside of them. It will enhance your focus when you’re working or talking to your team on Google Meet!

🖥 Double monitor

Having to switch between multiple windows on a laptop can decrease work efficiency. Having double monitors, whether you’re at the office or home, allows you to spread everything out and arrange your work in an order that’s easy to find. You need this badly.

🚰 Corkcicle Canteen

Hydration is important, and Corkcicle is here to help with it.! Seriously though, drink all the water! According to Dr. Axe, “The answer on how to stay hydrated with water is typically drinking between 25 percent and 50 percent of your body weight in ounces of water daily. So if you weigh 160 pounds, you typically want to try to get between 40–80 ounces of water a day.”

Might as well drink it in style.

📔 Moleskin

You may find having a physical notebook all the more useful while working remotely, and Moleskins work great. Write down your focus for the day, take notes during a meeting or jot down ideas so you can keep moving forward with the task that’s currently in front of you.

👕 Company swag

During this time when most businesses are working remotely, any company swag is the perfect tool to keep the culture together and help your employees adjust to their newly-remote role. Not only are they appropriate to wear and use while working remote, but they can help your team stay connected to company culture!
