If you’re easily congested on the regular, you might want to upgrade your workspace with a desk humidifier. It’s so hard to focus on your massive to-do list when your head is all stuffed up. If you don’t think you have enough real estate on your desk to devote to a humidifier, don’t fret. These little humidifiers are much smaller than you think, and they’re easy to bring to and from work. They’ll take up about the same amount of room as a houseplant. Bonus: If you do have a desk plant, they’ll also thrive thanks to the added moisture in the air. Most importantly, your skin will be hydrated and you’ll be able to breathe easier.
We rounded up the best desk humidifiers for you. Desk humidifiers usually run anywhere from six to 12 hours at a time, boosting moisture up into your air space. One of our three picks is also an essential oil diffuser, so you can have a side of eucalyptus with your moist air. While another is a night-light, which is great if you work at home and can bring your humidifier from your desk to your bed.
