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.

Working from bed

Working from bed

We know that we're not supposed to have devices in the bedroom and that a good posture is easier at a desk. Yet, up to 40% of people who work from home during lockdown have worked from their bed at some point.

The practice may spark creativity and productivity. Samual Johnson, Florence Nightingale and William Wordsworth all worked from bed. Contemporary writers do too. And if you want to work from bed, there are some things to note.

Think about your working environment

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.

It`s more important to know where you`re going than to get there quickly.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
