Seven reasons to consider working from home
Because a Superfast broadband connection means you can take your office wherever you go, we've listed seven reasons to consider working from home.
1. The one-minute commute
You will marvel at how you managed to spend so many hours of your life stuck in traffic, waiting for buses and trains, and watching others go mad over someone not moving when a traffic light turned green. Frustration experienced on your daily commute is something you no longer have to endure.
2. The time before breakfast
There was a time when "The Time Before Breakfast" consisted of a short trudge from bed to shower, then bolting a bowl of cereal and heading for the door to start the grind to work. Now it is a time with space to do some exercise or take a walk or spend time talking with the family over breakfast before taking five or so steps to your home office.
3. You’re the boss
You set the rules, so you can either decide to stick to a routine or mix up your days to fit around other obligations in a way that suits you.
4. Save, save, save
Tickets and petrol, coffees and lunches, drinks after work, it all adds up each week. Working from home can mean some significant savings on those expenses.
5. Increase your output
If you are disciplined, you’ll be surprised at how much more you can get done. Your productivity should improve, not least because you really are working with your best interests at heart.
6. Stress less
It may take a while to get yourself set up but once you are and you get in a rhythm you should start noticing your stress levels fall away as you begin to see there is more to life.
7. Work-life balance
Perhaps the biggest benefit is work-life-balance. This can be tricky to achieve, whether it’s the children, pets or noisy neighbours, there are distractions that are bound to come when you work from home. Sometimes you’ll have to catch up with work after one of these setbacks, so you need to know when to switch off. Once you’ve established a routine, you will find you start to manage your time well and know how you are filling it to get the best work done and have the best life balance.
