Over the past year, working from home has gone from the exception to the norm. The convenience of foregoing hours stuck in traffic, as well as being safe from the pandemic, directly translates to increased happiness, efficiency, and productivity.
Consumers were quick to transition at home. However, not all setups were conducive as a workspace. One of the biggest issues that arose was the requirement for proper computer monitors. One of the segments that grew the most over the past year has been monitors. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), in the 4th quarter of 2020, the monitor market grew 16.9% year over year with shipments surpassing 39.2 million units worldwide.
The year’s halfway done, but there’s still plenty of time to reinvent your space with an industry-leading home entertainment upgrade that you and your family deserve.

It’s been more than a year since the pandemic started and I can count with the fingers of both hands the number of times I went out. I have adjusted surprisingly well considering I live alone, but the cracks have started to show in the past few months. There are times when I talk to myself out loud. My social skills have declined and I find myself unable to respond during meetings and video calls. I get tired when I get multiple deliveries in a day or when I interact with a lot of people. My wellbeing is not doing so good.
So when Google invited me to a Well-being Day with Ronald Del Castillo, PsyD, MPH of DIWA Mental Health, I knew I needed to go. I wanted to find ways to care for myself as we continue to survive during the pandemic. Other speakers during the webinar included Geia Lopez from Google, and YouTube creators Janina Vela, Lyqa Maravilla, and Madam Ely.
