Top 10 Desk Accessories to Make you More Productive
1. An Ergonomic Keyboard
How does an ergonomic keyboard make you more productive? By being shaped, it can reduce the tension in your arms, shoulders and hands. This means that you are likely to spend less time stretching or resting your arms. It will also help you learn to type a bit quicker if you are someone who struggles with speed typing.
2. Desk Timer
If you are working on a big project and need to take regular breaks, a desk timer is the perfect solution to break up your tasks.
Also, if you need a short sharp burst of focus time, this can help you concentrate on one single thing, knowing that you won't get lost in the task and end up spending hours on it.
3. Desk Lamp
Without being able to clearly see what you are doing, you could end up straining your eyes to see clearly. If you can't see your notebook or papers clearly, you are increasing the likelihood of making a mistake.
We love this flexible gooseneck lamp which can be placed pretty much anywhere
4. Multi-Functional USB Docking Station
Say goodbye to having dozens of cables running across your desk. This super slick docking station has all the ports you could possibly need. Plug this one into your Mac or laptop and keep it discreetly somewhere so your wires aren't all over the place. Clear desk = clear mind!
5. Wireless Charging Desk Mat
Protect your desk whilst charging your phone and giving yourself extra mouse mat space. What's not to love about this efficiency machine! It comes with some funky lighting modes too - for you to set to your mood.
6. Desk Whiteboard
Ditch the post-its for this desk whiteboard. It even has a storage compartment within it so you can keep your whiteboard pens and cleaning cloth in there. Jot down your notes straight away without wasting time trying to find you notepad or post-its.
7. Weekly Planner
Ideal for keeping on track of everything that you have coming up that week. Easy to jot things in so you don't forget, and perfect for those of us who love a paper planner. This weekly planner can keep you focused on the current week
8. Daily Goal Setter
Spending a few minutes each morning concentrating on what you hope to achieve that day is great for productivity. Knowing your goals, and noting down a positive affirmation is the perfect way to keep you focused and on track. A daily planner for all your goals and targets is just what you need!
9. Desk Cup Warmer
Do you get so engrossed in work tasks that your tea gets cold? This USB Cup Warmer will solve that problem, keeping your cuppa nice and warm for much longer. Saves having to make a fresh one!
10. Adjustable Height Desk
Adjustable height desks are fantastic for posture, fitness, and therefore your overall productivity. With a whole range to choose from, we think simple is the best. Make sure it can hold the weight of everything you will be keeping on it (monitors, laptops). Most will have a mechanism to support lifting it up and down so you don't need to be super strong to adjust it.
