The pandemic has been tough for everyone, and if you have found yourself having to work from home, then you’d know how it can throw your whole routine into chaos.

With no end in sight for the near future, it seems that some of us may be working remotely for a while (hey fellow Sydneysiders!) so it’s important to set yourself up a proper professional workspace to keep that work/life balance in order.

So whether you’re partial to keeping a dedicated space for your work, or are more comfortable working from the comfort of your bedroom (guilty), we’ve rounded up a whole bunch of essential items you need to get through this weird and wild time.
