While having a spacious, ergonomic standing desk or a comfy cushy ergonomic chair are a great way to jazz up your home office, there’s always a few handy accessories you should consider as well. Perhaps nothing should be taken for granted more than great lighting. According to a Harvard Health research, staring at a computer screen for long periods of time or reading without adequate light can strain your eyes and cause them to get tired more easily. One great way to mitigate the harsh glow of the screen and illuminate everything on your desk is with a great LED desk lamp.
