There will be days when it will be hard to get up from bed. Sometimes, there are even more days in a month that you find it hard to wake up and get dressed for work. There will be days when, no matter what you do, you just can’t force yourself to go to your designated workspace and do some work.
When this happens, they often tell you that it’s impossible to work right at your bed. No one will believe you if you say that it actually works for you and you even get your job done faster when you’re working at your bed instead of forcing yourself to stand up and go to your workspace.
Don’t get us wrong. Working in your bed is not an ideal set-up at all. You still need to build the discipline and stay true to your commitment that you’ll show up for work at your best even if it means getting up and getting ready to work during your bad days.
All we’re saying is that it’s also possible to work from your bed, if you really have no choice. Perhaps you are not feeling that well but you still want to get some work done. Perhaps your designated workspace is being renovated and you have nowhere to work but your bed at the moment. Perhaps you just decided you want to work in your bed for today to sort of relax and chill. Perhaps it’s not that busy of a day in the office and you only have to attend some fellowship meetings.
For these instances, you can still work in bed with the right tools. We’ve listed down products below that you can use while working in your bed so that you’d still stay disciplined and efficient even if it’s tempting to just lie flat in your bed and sleep.
This product promises the best luxury sleep ever but you can also use it when you’re watching TV or reading something and you still don’t want to sleep. You can use it too if you’re going to work in your bed.
How is that possible? This bed base is an adjustable product, meaning it could be customized to the needs of one’s body. Read, watch TV or go to bed comfortably with the head adjustment ranging from 0 to 60 degrees. For more comfort, adjust the height of the bed by choosing from these three leg options: 3", 6", or 9”. The underbed storage space measures up to 25 cubic feet.
This could still be used without a new bed. It can be fitted into a standard-sized bed frame or could act as a standalone support system. It comes with a wired remote control that is easy to use and adjusts the bed frame to a comfortable sleeping position. It uses a durable and quiet motor and delivers a max thrust of 6000N (600kg) at a sound level of less than 50 decibels for a sound sleep. For safety, it comes with a mattress retainer bar so you or the mattress would not slide off from the frame.
If it doesn’t work that you’re lying in bed, you can sit down on the side of your bed and use this overbed table from FlexiSpot. You may also use it when you’re sitting on your couch or on a recliner. The base has a C shape which allows it to be used from a chair or bed. You can easily move it around any side of the bed with its four hidden casters. This means you’ll be able to move around your desk essentials with ease instead of having to carry them one by one if ever you decide to move your workspace for the day. The desktop has a 27.6 width and a 15.7 diameter. It can fit your laptop or even your tablet with a keyboard. It’s height adjustable as well so as mentioned, you can work seated in your bed, or you can work while standing up from time to time.
At $129.99, you can already have this very light, portable yet sturdy laptop stand from FlexiSpot. It’s ideal for travelers but also for you who is choosing to work in your bed or sofa today. Unlike any other in the market, this laptop stand comes complete with a full-featured type-C cord and ports for one or two displays(HDMI and VGA), Gigabit Ethernet network data, TF/SD cards, speakers, external hard drive, optical disk drive, printers, USB keyboard, mouse and many other USB devices. It will keep your laptop base cool and can suit your posture with the stand’s tiltable angle. Plus of course, if we haven’t reiterated it enough, you can fold, bring and use it anywhere.
Since you’re going to be working on your bed, it will be very tempting to fall asleep. You need to use the best lighting for you to stay awake, alert and focused. Have a bedside table and put a lamp wherein you can fixate the light to be in your area or directly facing your laptop while you are working. This Flexispot table lamp applies the 2020 sensor tech wherein the light could be adjusted by just tapping on the base or the pole. It can be adjusted from low, medium and high brightness suitable for any situation or mood. It also comes with an adjustable head and a golden finish rotary joint that could be rotated by 330 degrees. It also has a USB charging port that provides 5V/2A fast charging that may charge your device without turning on the light. Once you buy this product, it comes with all the required tools including the LED bulb. It’s even backed with an Amazon Basics 1-year limited warranty.
Adding to all of these features is the lamp’s vintage and classic design characterized by an antique matte black and brass gold finish.
To reiterate, the bed is not the right place to work. But if you have no choice or you just want to have a chill work day for once, you can still work in your bed using the right tools that can wake you up and help you finish your work tasks.
