Upgrade your WFH space

It has been almost 3 years since NZ went into their first lockdown.

It was a whirlwind of a time, only a few hours notice to let you know you would be ‘banished’ to the walls of your home for an unknown length of time. When you are spending 40+ hours a week in the office + travel time and after-work activities, the thought of being inside your own home for all those hours was a confusing idea – would your kitchen table hold up as a makeshift desk, how are you going to define workspace and relaxation space. Where will your partner and kids be stationed, or will your flatmates be as messy with their workstations as they usually are at home?

But 3 years on, most of us are now used to the WFH/Hybrid model and the need to have a consistent at-home workspace, but in the haste of setting up our work-from-home office, did we overlook some of the luxuries that would help drive focus, comfort and elevation.

These 8 general home office needs may be the added touches you need.


Super Feast, Super Nectar

As someone who is on the ADHD scale, I often find it difficult to focus. Finding a natural supplement that helps you stay focused and concentrate that is easy to digest is super important to me.

SuperFeast’s neural nectar is designed to cultivate mental energy, acuity, and memory. While also crafted to support the brain and all five organs – Lung, Kidney, Liver, Heart and Spleen. With so many health benefits and 200+ 5-star reviews, I can’t wait to try this out in my morning smoothies or one of their many recipe ideas. If your weakness isn’t brain fog, they also have 8 other blends, including immune and gut tonic or calm mind for sleep aid.
