With most of the country now self-quarantining, many Americans have found themselves working from the couch or bed. A few essential additions can make a significant impact in creating a productive work environment during these unprecedented times. EDGE offers five picks to help focus your energy.

Vari Desk Converters and Standing Desks
Standing at your desk instead of sitting all day can have various health benefits from helping back issues to reducing weight gain. Vari offers desk converters , which can turn any desk into a standing desk through simple adjustments. They are available in different sizes from a laptop-only desk space to one that can fit two desktop monitors.

For a brand new desk, consider Vari's full-standing desks , which are quick to assemble and easily adjustable. For extra comfort and support while standing in front of your desk, use a standing mat. $175-$795

Shady Rays Blueshade Glasses
The light emitted from LED screens (blue light) can be harmful to your eyes, prevent a good night's sleep, and may even contribute to macular degeneration. With so much more time now spent on digital devices, protecting your eyes from blue light is even more important. Shady Ray's Blueshade collection offers a dozen frame styles with blue light-filtering lenses. And with every pair sold, Shady Rays donates 10 meals to fight hunger. $69

JBL LIVE Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Stay focused and keep other noises at bay with JBL's LIVE headphones. Featuring JBL's signature sound, the sleek wireless headphones offer touch-control for hands-free calls, multi-point connection to effortlessly switch from one Bluetooth device to another, and Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa optimization. $149

Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2
Coffee consumption has continued to rise, even before the onset of self-quarantining at home. But what's worse than a cold cup of coffee (unless it's cold brew, of course)? Ember's smart mug keeps your coffee at your preferred temperature with a built-in battery and charging coaster for an all-day caffeine buzz, calming cup of tea or other hot beverage. $99.95-$129.95

Moleskin Smart Writing Set Ellipse
Step away from the computer and other digital devices to create organic ideas using Moleskin's innovative smart writing system. The Paper Tablet uses invisible Ncoded technology embedded within each page, which enables the Smart Writing Set Pen+ to recognize where it is within the notebook and to transfer freehand notes from page to screen in real time. $149
