Advantages of Working From Home
Some people have worked from home for years. Others have just started recently when the Coronavirus Pandemic necessitated many of us to stay home for long periods of time. Are you considering joining the thousands and now possibly even millions who work from home? You should! It’s incredibly beneficial. Consider the following:
#1 You can make your own schedule. Many employers allow you to put in your eight hours without starting at 9 AM and ending at 5 PM. Are you a night owl? Do you have the most energy super early in the morning? Do you need to take care of family responsibilities in the mid afternoon? Working from home means you can get your work done at the time your body is most efficient.
#2 It is much easier to focus. Working from home takes willpower and routine. Once you have developed this, you’ll be working hard without the distractions that are so common in an office setting. You can control your working situation much more now that you don’t have to worry about co-workers stopping by to “just ask a quick question” or donuts in the break room. In fact, you’ll probably realize it doesn’t take anywhere near eight hours to finish your work for the day without any distractions.
#3 You will save money. Even if you make the exact same salary, you’ll see more of it adding up in your bank account. For one thing, you don’t need to commute anymore. Your car will barely ever need its gas tank filled up. As well, you won’t put as much wear and tear on it and you’ll go longer before you need an oil change or new tires. You can also save on food costs since you’ll easily be able to make your own lunch and coffee. Plus, no more expensive work clothes. Within just a few months, the savings will really add up!
#4 You can avoid office politics. Working from home means you’ll get your job done and not much else. This is great if you have a coworker or two you’d rather not be around. Due to the fact that idle chatting in the break room isn’t possible when you work online, remote workers tend to skip the gossiping and hurt feelings that happen in traditional work settings. You can’t choose your family, and you can’t choose your co-workers either!
#5 High speed internet means your work will get done quickly! If you’re looking at these benefits thinking you live in an area where working from home would be impossible, think again.
