Let’s accept this, no matter where you’re working from, you are still stressed from all the responsibilities of your job.
So, must you work remotely or just find a work where you have to work the office? It really comes down to the place you’ll be most productive in, together with the industry you’re in. (And how nice your home office is.)
With that in mind, we have listed some of the timeless advantages of My Remote Gigs. These are solely subjective, so they might differ from yours.
- Adjustable schedule. You can easily take a rest, feel no pressure to hang up on your loved ones when they call, and grab your meal at any eerie time you desire.
- Custom conditions. Control your noise level depending on your preferences — somewhere between fiercely peaceful to being at the front row of a Lady Gaga concert. And if you’re careful of your workspace ergonomics, you can generate a powerful rhythm for your workflows.
- Comfy clothes. You get to wear those sweatpants from school with the letters peeling off, or the leggings your mates don’t know you have. (And probably never will.)
- It’s simpler to make calls. You won’t have to struggle to look for a conference room or deal with a especially chatty co-worker. (Given that, children and pets at home can make this hard for some remote employees.)
- Knock off some weekend to-do’s. That Mt. Everest clothes pile waiting for you? That stuff you set a note to get from the store several weeks ago? Cross. It. Off.
- No office disturbances. Get rid of co-workers discussing the benefits of cryptocurrency, sirens wailing outside your window, the AC kicking in as you deceive your icicle tears.
- Good bye traffic. From bed to … bed? Let’s all admit, it is wonderful.
- Save a lot of money. Lunch is cheap if you go to work in a city or downtown. In San Francisco, it’s not stupid to see a $15 meal or $4 coffee. At home, you can save huge amount of money by going to the store and cooking your food.
