It may sound frivolous but you would be lost without it. Whenever you're heading out the door, you need to know two things: where your phone is and that it is charged.
Docks allow you to keep your device charged but also in one place, so you don't lose it or find yourself scrabbling around to find it. Also when a device is docked, it can be remote controlled (depending on the device). Plus, more often than not, it's great for the bedside, even if you don't use it in the office.
Depending on the kind of phone you have, you may need to shop around. But always be sure to get a genuine dock from your manufacturer directly even through Amazon, as others can make cheap knock-offs.
When working from home, one of the hardest things to do is detach yourself from your home life. It's easy to slob in your pyjamas around the house, but make the distinction between the two.
Many of your favourite programs might be broadcast during the day when you are 'at work'. Record them, keep your time schedule strict and do not falter. Plus, it's a great way to keep yourself entertained during the 'lunch hour' by catching up on your latest TV show.
Make sure you get a DVR that is compatible with your home cable or service provider, though. Whoever said working from home has to be all about 'work'? It's not: it's about work/life balance.
