It also makes it so much easier to hold the phone without straining your fingers.

Weekly Planners Keyboard Pad, $8.85 at Amazon

How is your work from home going so far? Are you on top of all assignments? Does your old organizer help? Mine doesn’t. Somehow, my tasks became overwhelming when I started working from home. I needed way more space and lines to write down my to-do list and a dated page in a notebook or the little box on a calendar just wouldn’t do. I needed this weekly planner pad to set on my desk. It has the perfect amount of writing space, cute designs, and it's not dated, so it can last beyond the calendar year.

Cactaki 32oz BPA-Free Water Bottle with Time Marker, $19.95

While staying home we visit our kitchen, in particular our fridge way more often. We snack non-stop, but do we drink as much water as we need to? This bottle helps keep track of the water you’re drinking daily and stay more hydrated because of the time marker. It’s not just another cute water container, it’s a very mature, responsible bottle that takes good care of you. So just get it, let it do its work and get your daily amount of water to help out your immune system during these uncertain times. 

Natural Himalayan Hand Carved Salt Lamp, $18.53

How do you relax once you’re logged out? Have you heard about the Himalayan Salt Lamp? It provides a nice, warm glow that's bright enough for some late-night reading or just creates a gentle ambiance, which is much appreciated when coping with the chaos of quarantine life. It has some health benefits as well, so there’s no problem if you leave it on while you sleep. Also, it’s beautiful and will perfectly fit into any interior.

Last but not least, a way to bring excitement into your Netflix binge-watching sessions is a proper eco-friendly silicone popcorn maker. A device that finally gets the job done eliminating all the struggle. Easy, quick and necessary, taking into account all the nights that we will all spend in front of the TV. After trying many of them and failing miserably time after time, now I can declare with utter satisfaction and contentment. This is the one popcorn maker you need in your life.
