30 Jun Benefits of working form home!
No denying daily life in the US is starting to transition back to the normal grind and our previous routines are coming back full swing, but this brings up the question do we really want to go back to “normal”? The pandemic has impacted every single person differently and no two experiences are the same but one thing that was universal, was it forced everyone to reflect on what matters in their life and where they want to spend their time. For some of us that means returning to the office is no longer the ideal situation and that remote working has become preferred. If that is the case for you than I encourage to you keep reading as we discuss the benefits of working from home and how you can make that life a reality!
Better Work-Life Balance:
Working from home often allows for more flexibility with you schedule. This flexibility can be a huge asset, whether it’s dropping kids off at school, running some errands or getting in a workout.
Less Commute Stress:
According to Flexjobs.com “The average one-way commuting time in the U.S. is 27.1 minutes—that’s nearly an hour each day spent getting to and from work, and it really adds up. More than 30 minutes of daily one-way commuting is associated with increased levels of stress and anxiety, and research shows that commuting 10 miles to work each day is associated with health issues like:
- Higher cholesterol
- Elevated blood sugar
- Increased risk of depression
Ditching the commute helps you support your mental and physical health. The time savings can allow you to focus on priorities outside of work, like getting extra sleep in the morning, spending more time with family, getting in a workout, or eating a healthy breakfast.”
Work From Anywhere:
This one is pretty self-explanatory in its benefit but the ability to work remotely means you can work from anywhere that has WIFI. This means you work for a job anywhere which also means you can travel and continue to hold your employment.
You Save Money:
Think about this, less money spent of gas, car maintenance, transportation, parking fees, a wardrobe, lunches bought out, childcare, home help and more can all be reduced or eliminated from your spending entirely.
A Happier, Healthier Work Life:
Working remotely has shown to increase happiness, reduce stress, create more personal time and has shown to improve relationships! Best part is, it doesn’t stop there, working from home can also lead to better health in a variety of ways:
- More time for physical activity
- The ability to eat healthier
- Can recover from illness or surgery at home
- Less exposure to illnesses
- Ease of caring for a health issue or disability
- The option to create a comfortable and ergonomic workspace.
