These Five Amazon Items will Upgrade your Home Office/Classroom

Although it may have seemed nice at first, working from home isn’t exactly ideal. Personally, I have faced quite a few challenges with my work from home setup. What seems like a hundred cords are making a mess of my desk, and the less-than-ideal overhead lighting in my dorm room is making Zoom calls a nightmare. Thankfully, I’ve found the solution to all of my work related problems on one website: Amazon.

Desk Ring Light

Ring lights aren’t just for beauty YouTubers anymore. Whether your laptop webcam isn’t cutting it for your daily Zoom calls or you simply need better lighting in your dorm room, a ring light will save your life. This one is perfect because it can stand right on your desk while you work.

Clamp Power Strip

This power strip is attached to a clamp which you mount to the edge of your desk. It allows you to keep all of your devices charging on your desk at once while keeping them organized. There is nothing worse than having all of your cords in a tangled mess on your desk and this product prevents that from happening.

Essential Oil Diffuser

An essential oil diffuser can change the entire vibe of your home office/classroom. Oils such as peppermint, citrus and rosemary decrease fatigue and increase focus and are perfect for your work day, while oils like lavender and cedarwood encourage sleep and relaxation to help you unwind after a long day. There are lots of essential oil diffusers available on Amazon but this one lights up and changes colors, making it a great addition to any room.

Cell Phone Stand

I prefer to keep my phone leaning against something while I work so that if I get a notification I can quickly check it without having to stop what I’m doing. This phone stand holds your phone up on your desk so you don’t have to lean it against a water bottle as I used to do. Both the height and angle of the stand are adjustable and it can even be folded to lay flat so it won’t take up space while not in use.

Adjustable Laptop Stand

By the end of your work day, you probably feel at least slight back and neck pain from sitting at a desk all day long. This stand allows you to do your work while standing up, in bed, on the couch, or simply sitting at your desk but with your laptop at a higher angle.

Hopefully these five products will help you as much as they have helped me and upgrade your home office/classroom.
