Working from home: heaven or hell?


Working from home is becoming the latest trend and we are talking globally here. Everyday, more companies let their workers work from home at least once or twice a week. And even more companies are looking to outsource, looking for workers who may work from home and, occasionally, from different countries. We can see this “work from home” work is increasing every day on different job boards and people are really starting to enter this new stream because, let’s face it, staying home should be better than going to officials every day. However, this is unused to everyone. Working from home has good and evil, but, ultimately, it depends on everyone.

Let’s start off listing some goodness: no journey, that’s the only thing that can convince you to stay home, no traffic, no public transport, no people above you at peak time, just happiness as you walk from the booth to the official room; the flexibility of working hours and in managing the time, most of these jobs do not have to have the tight schedule you need to follow, so you can set your own time, especially if you are a freelancer; Less pressure, because most people who work from home are their own bosses, or their boss is not around them, the pressure can be reduced at least; Lack of distractions resulting in more productivity, no useless encounters, no workbooks telling about 13 cats or their children, not wandering around the officials looking for a photocopier that actually works, not wasting time with small talk, just you and your family; more family time, because you are already home, there is a good chance to spend more time with your family, or your dog, while working from home, you just need to be organized and know how to manage your time in a productive way

Although now you may be ready to pack your desk and go home, you need to know that working from home also has a drawback: alienation, although some people prefer to be alone, others prefer to have some companies during the day, but if you have a family, this is not a problem; disturbance, we may have more disruptions in the officials, but that does not mean not at home, social media shipping becomes your greatest enemy when working from home; Separating work from home, this is probably one of the worst disadvantages of working from home, you should be able to manage your day in a way that can spend enough time you work and enough with your family or friends, try to have a separate room to work, do not stay in your bedroom, look for a good corner at home to do it; Working endlessly, because you do not have anybody escorting your work time but yourself, you may feel the need to work every time, that’s why you should be regular with your time and put your responsibilities first.
