Reasons to Work from Home

Business - General

Introduction:If you are thinking about starting your own business and you don't want to invest in an office or the company you work for allows you to work from home, here are the reasons why you should just start your own home office.

  • 01

    You Won't Get Angry Over Bad Public Transportation or Traffic

    At work, we need to be productive. If you spent two hours in traffic or squeezing on the bus before arriving at the office, you won't be as productive as somebody who works from the comfort of their home or just needs to walk 5 minutes to be there. Not to mention the hours you spend driving yourself to work are wasted hours of your life.

  • 02

    You Can Take Breaks During the Day

    As long as you get the job done, it's not a problem if you check your personal e-mails, social media or dog videos on Youtube. I worked for a company that didn't allow us to open Facebook all day and I think maybe I would have been more relaxed and produced way more if for 5 minutes each hour I could just check some funny pictures or even important information on the pages I follow. And not just that, you can take 5 minutes to play with your pets or kids.

  • 03

    Nobody Cares What You Wear

    When we work in an office, it's important to look presentable, whatever that means to you and your company. A lot of people need to wear formal clothes to work and sometimes they can be uncomfortable. Or during summer you will feel like it's too much and there's nothing you can do. Some websites suggest that even if you are working from home, you should dress yourself up, but this is going to be completely up to how you feel, because, honestly, to this day the fact that I worked in pyjamas or suits didn't change the results of my work.

  • 04

    You Will Learn to Organize Yourself

    If you are not the type of person who has everything together, coloured folders for different types of documents, post-its everywhere, knows where everything you will need is, you are going to have to start knowing. You will learn that you can be the most organized person you ever met once you start working from home.

  • 05

    You Don't Need to Wait Your Vacation to Go Somewhere

    If you can be in Barcelona and still deliver the job you are responsible for, why not? I have travelled to so many places while still working on my normal schedule that I guarantee you it is totally possible. Like this you don't need to see different places in a hurry during your actual vacation and maybe you will be even more productive being in a place different from home, which sometimes will get boring when you home office.


Final Thoughts

Of course there are also reasons why you should NOT work from home, but it's what I have been doing for a few years now and it's worked well for me. I enjoy being my own boss and knowing that makes me inspired to work even harder. I guess there could be one more item to this list: you will discover where your heart is really at.
