Since lockdown many of us have had to adapt to working from home, which is no easy feat when a heatwave coaxes you outdoors. As tempting as it seems to find spot in the sun and lounge, rather than answer your un-read emails, this hack will mean you don't have to choose between work and play ever again.

LinkedIn user Tom Wood posted his "cardboard box hack," earlier this month and in turn the post went viral inspiring tons of copycats across social media, including those who claimed they had already been using the trick for sometime during lockdown.

To achieve it, its pretty simple, place your laptop into a small re-purposed box (or under an umbrella) to reduce the screen glare that makes working on a laptop outdoors nearly impossible.

Facebook was awash with people posting their own versions of the hack.
