Without rest a man cannot work, and without work, the rest does not give you any benefit. Getting the work-life balance right is what most of the working population is striving for.
Now in this new era of telecommunications it is possible to work from home and remain productive. This is certainly an effective means to live richer more fulfilling lives.
When people have more time to be with their families or to do things for themselves, they're happier people. Happier people are less stressed out and are less likely to make mistakes. Happier people are more productive, which leads to more work done and more money saved.
The average job does not let us set our own hours. The daily grind consists of set hours at inconvenient times. Doctor appointments, parent teacher conferences, and other important events require us to take time off from work. One of the joys of working from home is the ability to set your own hours. Not a morning person? Start your workday in the afternoon. Maybe your significant other works nights, and you want to adapt a similar set of working hours. Setting your own hours enables you to create a schedule that fits your lifestyle. A flexible schedule also aids in strengthening relationships with family and friends by allowing you to spend time with loved ones.
You will certainly find more time for yourself. You may put the time you spend commuting towards your hobby, favorite sport, studying or other experiences more enriching than attacks of road rage. It's easier to work exercise into your daily routine. You could work out first thing in the morning, work for an hour or two, then eat breakfast and take a shower. You can fix your own schedule when you don't have to go into an office. Importantly don't have to take time off work to wait for repair people coming to the house.
One of the first benefits of working from home you will notice is savings on daily expenses. Most of us start of frugally; we pack our lunch at home each morning to bring to the office. But we get tired of quick home-packed lunches that consist of dull cold food. One day we go to lunch with a co-worker and then it is hard to stop eating out once the trend begins. After all, we work hard and believe we deserve a good hot meal. Little luxuries are hard to give up on a stressful workday. At home, you can have your fancy coffee and delicious meals for a fraction of the cost of going out. With a little planning, healthy meals become an easy option when working from home.
The interesting stores and quaint boutiques we pass while walking to lunch, or taking a break, beckon us. Eventually we cave in to the call and check these places out. Browsing soon turns into buying. Before we know it, we are regularly spending a portion of our paycheck on goods that catch our eye during workday breaks.
A great benefit of working from home is avoiding the shopping temptation altogether. Working from home prevents you from walking by stores on a daily basis. Products that are out of sight are also out of mind.
The more time we spend in public, the more our chances of catching a cold or flu increase. Using public transportation to travel to and from work seems to increase those chances even more. On the other hand, working from home limits exposure to sickness.
Working from home generally leads to less sick days. Even when you do get sick, it is far easier to work from home than it is to work outside of the home.
You'll be saving money on work clothes. Whether you wear suits and ties, or dresses and skirts, a wardrobe of clothes is both expensive and necessary for working outside of the home. Top off the clothing expense with dry cleaning bills and we are talking serious money. Not to mention, wearing what you want is more comfortable than adhering to a strict office dress code.
