Working from your bed: Consider a tray table or laptop stand

  • Consider a tray table or laptop stand. It's important to keep your laptop at eye height to avoid any strain on your neck.
  • Don't use your tray table for drinks and snacks. Instead, use your bedside table or a small side table.
  • Keep a basket by the bed. This is where you keep chargers, pens, notepads, and biscuits.
  • Get new, firm pillows or cushions. Ensure your lower back is fully supported by using pillows and sitting up against your headboard.
  • Try to change the position you work in and stretch reasonably frequently.
  • Ensure you have a good power supply and wifi that reach the bedroom.

Consider getting washed and dressed before going back to bed to work. A clean and relatively tidy bedroom will be a more pleasant workplace.

A lovely neutral duvet cover works best as patterned linen can be distracting and busy. A throw or rug that you use when you work will help create a boundary.
