If you could change anything about your home office setup, what would you change? We asked our team to uncover the environmental qualities that would make their work from home setup even better. Here’s what they would change:

Being able to physically shut the door to your workspace at the end of the day is just what you need to distance yourself from your ongoing tasks & to-do lists that are work-related.
