Clear your mind (and your desk) for the best work-from-home experience

(NC) Remote and hybrid work options are here to stay, so your makeshift home workstation is now likely a permanent fixture. To keep your mind fresh and your brain energized when you work from home, make the most of your space to maximize productivity with these simple tips:

Clear the clutter to stay focused
If your workspace does double-duty during work and off-work hours, it can be easy to get distracted. Before starting for the day, stow away items unrelated to work. Think of it as your mental commute so you’re focused on work during the day – and do the reverse in the evening so you can officially clock-out.

Create an ambiance
The best part about hybrid work is that your home office is your own – no more fluorescent lighting or elevator music. Crank a podcast, the latest album release or some lo-fi beats to keep you focused. Add some soft, lighting that can help you feel comfortable and productive in your space.

Stay nimble
One of the best parts about working from home is the freedom to move around as you please. Try switching up your location to refresh and reset. Go from your desk to the balcony, to a coffee shop easier with a ultra-lightweight laptop such as the LG gram, which also has a battery that can last a full day, so you can switch up your location without having to worry about carrying a heavy bag or searching for elusive power outlets.

With a little creativity, anyone can make working from home feel a little less like work. You can find more information at
