COVID-19 Home Office Must Haves

I have a nice office room set up in my parents house except there's a tiny window in the room which can be a bit depressing working in a room alone all day.

What do you guys have as accessories/equipment/supplies in your office? I basically just have a L shape desk, a lamp, a small couch in front of my desk and a coffee machine. I've been thinking of buying a gigantic mirror to put on the wall but it's pretty expensive.

Just an intern so take my setup/recommendations with a grain of salt (would also love to hear about other peoples' setups!) but I just ordered/received a second monitor and a mechanical keyboard - both of which are huge upgrades to what I had before and I absolutely love the improvement. Haven't done any real work on them yet really but I can see how they add to productivity. Hope this helps!

Monitors. I made it through three years of college without a monitor and didn't understand the hype, but got two to WFH this summer and I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to just working on a laptop again. It's so much easier to multitask and my eyes feel so much better at the end of the day because I'm not straining to look at a small screen.
