10 Eligible Purchases to Improve Work From Home Health and Wellness

Whether you're new to working from home, or have been in the game for a while you understand the importance of curating the perfect home office space. Even if the only people seeing your space are attendees of Zoom meetings, it's normal to take pride in how your space feels and looks.

You may have gotten started with a few home office essentials like the perfect office chair, noise canceling headphones, and maybe even a standing desk for a little added health bonus. But the longer you’re a remote worker, the more items you realize are needed for a comfortable and functional home setup. 

Working from home can be stressful at times, so adding office essentials geared toward productivity and personal wellness can be a game-changer for both your work life and overall health.

The costs of creating your dream workspace can definitely add up, and you’re not alone if your remote working office supplies list keeps growing and growing. But we’ve got good news: many great work from home essentials are covered under your flexible spending account (FSA). 

There are a variety of products available to assist your remote work health needs and aid in your work day wellness. From blue light glasses to tension headache relief, check out our top 10 home office essentials below.

Work from Home Health Benefits

In a survey with Mental Health America, respondents with flexible work options (including remote work) reported better mental health. The obvious reasons why working from home can reduce stress and positively impact mental health include having no commute, comfortable clothing, and a personalized office space.

For those who are working from home and feeling stressed, the first thing you can do to help combat it is to recognize it. Then, work towards creating a routine, defining boundaries, taking breaks, creating a new work environment or working on other ways to socialize during the work week.

Maintain Healthy Habits

Don’t forget to take some stretching breaks, eat healthy, balanced meals, and spend time away from the computer.

Make sure your dedicated workspace has the proper laptop stand, mouse pad wrist support, desk lamp, and office chair to keep your body feeling good. And be sure to shop FSA Store to find everything you need to make your work days less stressful and more productive.
