I love working from home. I’ve gotten more done in the last month than I have in a year. But this isn’t all about me — it’s about you, too. And your boss and your coworkers, and all of us as we look to the future after the pandemic.
Data shows that remote workers are more productive than their office counterparts, so why not give it a try? Here are my top reasons why everyone should work from home at least some of the time:
Work-From-Home means less stress and more productivity
You’re not going to like this, but I’m going to tell you anyway: if you’re working in a cubicle right now and you’ve been feeling stressed out lately, it’s not just because of the pandemic. It’s also because your job is killing your creativity, productivity, and overall quality of life by forcing you into an environment where every moment of your day is spent in close proximity to hundreds of other people.
Work-From-Home means less time spent on commuting, which is beneficial to the environment.
As a worker, you’ll save time and money by going home to work. This means less time spent on commuting, which is beneficial to the environment. You can also avoid spending money on gas or public transportation, meaning you’ll have more to spend on other things.
When you’re traveling for work, your car emits pollutants into the air that harm our environment. This can lead to longer-term problems like acid rain and smog, which can damage ecosystems and make people sick.
Commuting also puts stress on drivers because they have little control over their travel times or routes; they’re at the mercy of traffic jams and construction accidents caused by bad weather conditions (or sabotage). They also need to maintain their vehicle so it stays safe while being driven daily through various terrains such as roads full of potholes or highways with sharp curves – all while worrying about running out of fuel before reaching their destination! So why not go home instead?
Work-From-Home means less money spent on transportation and little to no money spent on work clothing.
Work-From-Home can mean less money spent on transportation and little to no money spent on work clothing.
Think about it: If you’re working from home, you don’t have to spend money on gas or public transit to get yourself to work each day. And unless your company has a strict dress code, there’s probably no need for expensive suits or fancy shoes either. All of this means more savings for your paycheck that could be better spent elsewhere—like paying down debt, saving for retirement, and investing in the future (or all three).
With less distractions, you can be more productive.
You may be thinking, “I’m going to be so much more productive if I work from home.” But there are some serious risks you need to know about.
The first is that it could be dangerous for the people around you who aren’t on a quarantine schedule. It’s important that everyone in your household knows not to come near you or interact with you while working, but not everyone will realize this when they’re not feeling well themselves and may want to ask questions or share ideas.
The second is that any time spent working remotely must be meticulously planned and accounted for because there will be less distractions than usual at work—and that means less time spent doing other things like socializing with colleagues or taking breaks throughout the day (which helps keep us focused). The best way to ensure success here is by having strict boundaries set up beforehand: only work when no one else is around; don’t answer calls unless they’re from someone who approved their number being dialed by someone else; don’t allow anyone into your house without approval from authorities first…
Working from home can benefit both employers and employees if done properly.
When the pandemic hit, it was a disaster for many people. Many people lost their jobs or were laid off because they couldn’t make it to work. In this situation, being able to work from home would be beneficial for both employers and employees who are looking for some financial stability during this time of chaos.
Working from home maximizes your time.
Getting up early, and being stuck in traffic when you finish your shift will be out of the question. Your 8-5 job will just be 8-5. After you clock out, you get to do whatever you please.
Hopefully, we’ve got you more excited (and maybe a little less nervous) about embarking on this lifestyle. I know the struggle of fighting traffic and all that. After all, caring about yourself is a compelling reason to switch to this lifestyle in the first place!
