Less Stress More Success – Seven Cute Office Bits To Help You Work Smarter

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

Having clean, organised, clever workplace is key in a working environment.

It helps you get work done quicker, be aware of the workload and stay driven from 9-5. I feel so lost without my daily planner and a few of these other deadly bits.

Time to get sh*t done and work smarter.

1. Daily Planner – Urban Outfitters

No office desk is complete without a daily planner. It’s the ideal place to write down all your memos, events, dates, meetings and also to plan out some brainstorms.

I find it’s way easier to keep track of everything when it’s written down. I also store any receipts, invites or loose notes in my journal so that everything work related is in the same place.

This pattern is beyond gorge.

2. Ambr Eyewear

Staring at a computer screen all day can be tough on your eyes.

It can bring on headaches, sleep disruption and digital eye strain. Irish company, Ambr Eyewear has been created to combat this issue and to protect the eyes from the blue light on screens.

The glasses are slick too, so it’s a win-win situation.

3. Wire Letter Memo Stand – New Look

Desks can get messy with sheets of paper, letters and notes scattered around. Having a place to keep everything will make for a neater work space and you can really knuckle down without distraction.

4. Smartphone Mount – ASOS

A smartphone mount is not only helpful in the kitchen, when you’re following recipes but it’s also a great desk tool. It’s a second screen, a way of checking posts and social media pages and to find information quickly.

5. Slow At Work – Designist

A book to send you on your way, with great ideas and something to think about.

This will guide you to a smarter way of working – step back, slow down, achieve more. If you’re working too hard, you’ll burn yourself out.

This book shows you how to get that balance between work and personal life.

6. Wireless Charger – IKEA

If there’s one thing I hate about my work desk, its’ the endless strands of wires that everything gets caught up in.

This wireless charger is a godsend and so handy.

7. Ghost stand – CompuB

My laptop stand is one of the best things I’ve ever gotten. It prevents you from slouching at the desk and gets rid of that dreadful kink in your neck you get from peering down a screen.

Desk attire goals.
