What Work-From-Home Warriors Swear By Right Now

Does it seem that everybody else has got it all figured out when it comes to navigating this new normal? Maybe they do. But more likely, we’re all just fumbling though this (alone) together, and trading tips and tricks feels like a semi-productive way to stay connected while staying home. The little strategies we share serve as virtual hugs with the hopes of making our friends’ lives a bit sunnier. That’s why we rounded up some of the work-from-home Swears that our community of contributors are swearing by right now. Sending positive vibes that these Swears work for you while you WFH...

Lake Poplin Shorts Set in Pale Pink

“I took a Webex meeting while wearing this set just this morning, only to have my boss comment that “of course I’d be wearing a button-down to work from home.” Wrong. Little did she know that I was wearing the softest cotton PJs set I’ve owned. Usually, I’m more of a sweater-and-yoga shorts-around-the-house girl, but this old-timey set makes me feel like Shirley Temple if she grew up to be Carrie Bradshaw and freelanced a lot from home.” – Laura Reilly

Tranquility Weighted Blanket

“While practicing social distancing, I’ve been more anxious than ever lately, and this weighted blanket by Tranquility is one of the only things that’s been keeping calm while stuck inside. Not only do I use it at night to help me fall asleep, but I also snuggle up under it any time I’m feeling anxious while working during the day. It has definitely kept me calm and helped me be more productive.” – Rebecca Carhart

YETI Rambler Stainless Steel Insulated Tumbler

“I use this mug nearly everyday! It keeps my tea hot (not warm, hot!) the entire day, allowing me to sip as slowly as I want. I love its minimalist look and dishwasher-safe materials. And unlike tons of other mugs and tumblers out there, Yeti offers a variety of sizes, including this very large 20 oz. option, which is the equivalent of a Starbucks Venti and ideal for a daily tea drinker like me. I love mine so much that it’s become my go-to gift and nearly everyone in my family has one now.” – Jessica Mattern

Brooklinen Boerum Jogger

“I’m not afraid to admit that these cozy joggers are one of my go-to pieces to wear while working from home. They’re so comfortable and pair well with a sweater or t-shirt. Plus, I can easily swap into a presentable shirt for a video call while keeping the sweats on and no one will be the wiser.” – Christie Calucchia

Dyson Pure Cool Me Air Purifier

“While the temperature outside continues to yo-yo between 75° and 45°, my landlord insists on keeping our radiators at full blast. This small-but-mighty fan has made a tremendous difference in keeping me comfortable while I WFH. It pushes air a couple of feet and oscillates so I’m not sitting under a breeze blast. And not only is it incredibly quiet, but it also filters out the hair that my feline coworker leaves behind.” – Katie Macdonald

Cotton Citizen Brooklyn Oversize Tie Dye Hoodie

“As much as I love dressing up, I don’t love wearing a gown or corset in my living room. To the local bodega? Sure. But mine is currently closed so I’ll be living in this Cotton Citizen Tie Dye hoodie until further notice. It’s so soft it reminds me of my bed, which is only a couple of feet away but still. The tie dye also means I’m still keeping up with the trends even if I’m not going anywhere. And the fact that the sweater is named after Brooklyn couldn’t be more apt considering that’s currently where I will be indefinitely.” – Tara Gonzalez
