Tools for the new normal

Let’s face it: we have no choice but to stay a little longer inside our homes amid the pandemic.

This means that most of our work and our kids’ learning will have to be done inside the safe confines of our homes until a cure for COVID-19 has been discovered or, at the very least, when the curve has finally flattened. Many companies have, in fact, already laid out plans to implement work-from-home arrangements until the end of the year, while the schools that have opened so far are starting their academic year with online sessions.

To make this abrupt transition a tad easier for all of us, a few essentials might just do the trick to make your home offices and learning nooks more stylish, inspiring, and of course, conducive.


Ultra-wide monitors

Level up your home office setup with a wide screen, ultra high definition monitor that offers comfortable viewing angles and better color rendition. You don’t have to strain your eyes watching webinars and presentations via small screens. Check out LG’s UltraWide line of monitors, meant for extended hours of work and play—a perfect addition to your work-from-home setup.

USB chargers

Avoid the hassle of having tangled mess of wires and extension cords. It might be useful to have a compact, multi-port USB charger like the Anker PowerPort 6, which has advanced features like surge protection and temperature control to keep you and your devices safe, while giving them an optimized charge at the same time. Also, you can use the included adhesive strip to find the ideal position for your PowerPort.


Headphones, earphones, or ear buds

Sometimes, your laptop’s built-in speakers and microphones aren’t enough. You still need a good set of headphones, earphones or ear buds for better sound quality—plus, it will keep you from shouting whenever you have to speak during online meetings and from disturbing the rest of your family. Among the popular options today are Powerbeats Pro, Apple AirPods and JBL earbuds.

But if you’re fortunate to have a separate room for your office, you might as well get portable speakers which offer better sound quality than the built in speakers in your laptops. You can use these speakers whenever you listen to webinars and office meetings and to music as you unwind after a grueling day. Check out LG’s XBoom line of portable speakers—your intelligent companion for work, relaxation, gaming, exercise, and more.
