If I could turn back time, one thing I wish I invested in sooner (as in three months ago) is a desk lamp. It would've made my abrupt shift to working from home so much easier. Relying on my ceiling light has made me realize that I feel less productive when it starts getting dark outside.
According to Forbes, bad lighting is associated with "eye strain, headaches, fatigue, and also stress and anxiety in more high-pressured work environments." I moved my desk slightly closer to the window to catch that oh-so-beautiful natural light, but now I'm also thinking of buying a desk lamp. If you're in the same boat, here are some options I found online.
90 percent of my stuff is black so that's why I immediately went for this. It's simple & sleek!
