The current state of the world is forcing lots of people to work from home. If you're working from your best Macbook, the best accessories for working from home will help you get the job done. If working from home is a new experience for you, you may realize that being away from the office can cause some frustration. For instance, you may have a computer, a desk, a good chair, and a monitor, but there are likely some items you're used to having at your office that you won't have at home. Relax, working from home doesn't have to be stressful. When you already have the essentials, you just need a few accessories to make your new workflow as smooth as possible. Here are the best accessories for working from home.

Make sure you have everything you need

If you're going to start working from home, my best advice is to think hard about everything you could need, so you can make the transition as smoothly as possible. Even armed with the best tips for remote work and working at home, nothing is as frustrating as realizing you need something that's at your office or starting a project and not being able to complete it because of a lack of the right tools at your disposal. The best accessories for working from home are essential to making your life easier and allowing you to get the job done even when you're not working from the office.

I can't recommend an external hard drive enough. Everyone should have one regardless of where they work, and the Seagate Backup Plus Slim is perfect for anyone. It's fast and easy storage that can fit in a bag, purse, or even a large jacket pocket!

I have been working from home for over four years now, and I can't tell you just home much I have come to love my noise-canceling headphones. I use my Taotronics SoundSurge 85 every day because they keep me on task better than anything. Plus, their 40-hour battery life means I don't have to charge more than about once a week!
