Making the Most of National Work From Home Day
As it turns out, being a hiker has made working from home a little easier.
May 22 is National Work from Home Day!
For many of us, working from home has become the new normal — whether we were prepared for it or not. Transforming our living spaces into impromptu office spaces has been a bit of a challenge, but we've been on the lookout for any small ways we can improve them. And it turns out, our hiking and backpacking gear have made them a lot more enjoyable.
Here are three ways our outdoor recreation gear has benefited our day-to-day lives at home:
No office chair? No problem
Let's just say our impromptu home offices aren't quite as cushy as the real ones. Sitting for long hours every day on a hard plastic or wood chair is no fun. That's where our beloved camp sit pads come in. This Thermarest Z Seat has been a game changer for turning any ol' house chair into a relaxing retreat.
Coffee for one, please
At the office, it's totally acceptable to brew a full pot of coffee at 2 p.m. But at home, it's harder to justify a fresh pot when you know you'll be drinking it solo. Our tiny camp pour-overs have been the perfect tool for making a single-serving, mid-afternoon pick me up.
