Working from Home

Some people love the idea of working from home, others hate it. There are so many prejudices involved when it comes to this working style. So, let’s consider its advantages and disadvantages to decide whether working from home is better than working at an office.

Firstly, if you are working from home, you are not coming across the traffic jam, or you don’t encounter your colleagues’ stressful vibe in the mornings – especially on Mondays. Imagine a morning which you get up at what time you want without worrying about what to wear and you are not surrounded by tired, frustrated and stressed out faces. Working from home is a brilliant way to avoid those threaded daily commutes.

Moreover, you don’t have to travel miles to go to your office, you can just get up and start working right away. Also, since you don’t have to travel, you don’t pay tonnes of money for transportation and you are not wasting your precious time while travelling. By this way of saving time, you can sleep a bit longer, go for a run, or have a longer breakfast.

Also, when you are working from home, you have flexible working hours and you can choose at which time you want to work. Being able to plan and organize yourself, you can work when you feel the most productive. If you are a morning person, you can get up pretty early and start working. Likewise, if you are a night owl, you can stay up late and pull an all-nighter working.

Furthermore, it is more comfortable to work from home, no need to do your hair or put on makeup. Also, when you are sick or feeling blue, you can just cuddle your cosy blanket and bunch of pillows and work like that.

Although working from home seems perfect after reading lots of advantages, yet it has some disadvantages.

First of all, since you don’t get out of home much often, you don’t have any human interaction throughout the day. This may lead you to become more introvert if you don’t balance your work with your social life.

Also, it can be hard to separate your working life from your private life. From sleeping to having online business meetings you are going to spend most of your time in the same place and after a certain amount of time finding the motivation to work will be tough.

Overall, if you have self-discipline and you are great with time management, working from home seems perfect for you. I would suggest you to give it a try if you trust yourself on being humble while working. There is nothing to lose, only experience to gain.
