In the last 20 years, computers have become an indispensable resource for nearly every business worldwide.
As technology has continued to advance and personal computers have become more affordable, they have become a cornerstone of the modern business world. As of 2014, about 2 billion personal computers were in use worldwide!
Computers are going to continue to be a big part of our lives for many years to come, so you should make sure you have the best computer accessories to make your workday better! We've put together this list of a few essentials that should take your work-life to the next level. Read on to learn what they are!
1. Adjustable Standing Desk
As computers have taken over the typical workspace, people have moved from jobs that had them moving around to jobs that have them sitting for eight hours a day. Recently, the healthcare community has taken notice of the fact that sitting too much can have bad effects on your health. A sedentary lifestyle can contribute to a number of harmful health conditions, including:
- Poor Metabolism
- Increased Risk of Heart Disease
- Memory Loss
- Decline in Cognitive Brain Function
With an adjustable standing desk, you can move between standing and sitting with ease without having to relocate your entire work setup. There are models available that crank to raise and lower or those that are smooth and electric. Whichever you choose, your heart will thank you and you'll be able to stay healthy while you crush those emails.
2. Bluetooth Headphones
Nothing makes the workday fly by more than a little music. Maybe you're more of a fan of a nice engaging podcast? Whatever you like to listen to, Bluetooth headphones will make the experience that much better!
Bluetooth headphones give you the freedom to not be tethered to your desk. Want to get up and get a cup of coffee? Go do it! Your Bluetooth headphones will stay connected to your computer and your music or podcast won't be interrupted.
Oh, but here comes Steve, your coworker from down the hall. He's asking you a question. No problem! With the quick press of a button on your headphones, you can pause what you're listening to and then pick right back up where you were when you're done with Steve.
Nothing beats the ease and convenience of Bluetooth headphones, so what are you waiting for? Cut that cord!
3. High-Definition Monitor
If you are in a creative field, a high-definition monitor is essential. Whether you're editing photos and video or designing a logo, you need the visual clarity and colour accuracy of a high definition monitor.
No matter what kind of work you do, it's always better to have more "virtual real estate." Adding a second monitor to your work setup gives you more room to multitask. No more clicking back and forth between spreadsheets, just have them both open, one on each monitor.
Work is just better with two monitors, and with a high-def monitor, your lunch break can be awesome too--Netflix will look even better!
