CNN — How to create the outdoor workspace of your dreams By Lindsay Tigar

In case you haven’t been outside in a hot second, here’s an update: Summer is coming. And while it felt like we didn’t get to enjoy spring much, the warmest days of the year are ahead of us. Since stay-at-home orders will likely remain in place, at least somewhat, for the foreseeable future, many of us will continue to work from home.

But just because you can’t go in to the office, that doesn’t mean you have to set up shop indoors. For those who are lucky enough to have a patio, deck or backyard, consider taking your “office” outside. Not only will you reap the benefits of sunshine, leaving you feeling more positive (while wearing sunscreen, of course), but it’s a way to enjoy the weather during an abnormal time.

The trick, of course, is figuring out how to stay cool, see your screen and get comfortable when you’re away from the traditional office setup. Below, outdoor living experts and travel bloggers who have worked outdoors all over the globe share their strategies with us and recommend products that are beloved by reviewers and come from trusted brands.

Figure out a plan for power
When you’re in-office, you probably don’t give a second thought to battery life, since you’re consistently connected to power. But when you’re outside, outlets may not be easily within reach. That’s why Nate Hake, a travel blogger and the CEO of Travel Lemming, says to figure out your plan for power before making the move.

“I travel with a simple extension cord, which is useful if your outdoor workspace is reasonably close to an outlet,” he says. Another option if a cord isn’t feasible is to use a portable power bank.
