Making the switch from working for someone to freelance is an exciting step. Not only will you get your own freedom but you’ll have the benefit of working from home too. However, working from home comes with its own pitfalls, and it’s important that you start off strong by investing in a desk. A good quality desk like our Nova office desks will be sure to help your new career as a freelancer get off to a good start.
Reasons to buy a good desk if you’re going freelance
- It will stop you slacking on the sofa
The thought of working from home brings joy to many people – drinks on demand, TV in the background and feet up on the sofa, but the reality can soon be different. Without having a proper structure (and someone watching over your shoulder), you could soon find it difficult to settle into work, so a desk can restore some normality and create a more productive working environment.
- It will help you to relax
Freelancers can find it difficult to switch off, staying up later and working longer hours without necessarily taking a break. By having an area like a desk which you know is specifically for work, you’ll be more likely to keep control of hour many hours you do by leaving it when it’s time to relax. Keep food and personal work away from your desk area and you’ll be less tempted to stay at it all day long.
- It will keep you organised
A desk will encourage you to be organised, stopping you from keeping your work in piles around the house, which is not only unprofessional, but could cause you to make mistakes. Many Nova office desks have built-in storage for you to file away documents, invoices and more which will keep your living space for living and your work area for work.
- It’s better for your posture
Like any work environment, you could suffer from back, neck and shoulder problems if you don’t adopt the right posture whilst working from home. The British Chiropractic Association has published findings that show that 19% of home-workers work from the sofa and 11% from their beds – putting themselves at risk of back concerns. Having a desk and the right chair will help you keep your posture and eliminate those health concerns which could make working from home painful.
- It will make you feel like the boss!
Having your own desk is empowering, and you’ll feel more like the boss once you have your own and don’t have to share with Kevin from marketing. With your own desk you can decorate it how you want, pick the right layout and setup for you and genuinely feel like the boss that you now are.
