10 Work-From-Home Essentials Chatelaine Editors Swear By

From slippers and noise-reducing headphones to fresh-cut flowers, here's what's getting us through self-isolation.

Like many people, the Chatelaine team has been working from home for the past five weeks. While there’s something to be said for rolling out of bed five minutes before a 9 a.m. meeting and wearing sweatpants all day, adjusting to an uncertain new reality is not without its challenges. The good news? We now fully appreciate the small things in life, like a warm pair of slippers, a good pair of headphones or a perfectly chewy brownie. Here, we share the work-from-home essentials that are helping us get through this period of self-isolation.
