The work from home lifestyle has been normal for some people, however, a change for many others this year. The disruption of the gym routine, daily commute to the office, and also the reality of having to cowork with family members.
But how do we welcome the change?
We made 5 observations that we hope helps you embrace the new normal.
Increased Flexibility - Working remotely offers a more flexible schedule. You can get out of bed and not have to worry about the “face time” culture in the office. The morning routine is significantly reduced which can help with a slower start to the day.
Save Money - It’s common for many to go out for the morning coffee, snack or grabbing lunch. The reduced commute time can be replaced with meal preparation and therefore a reduction in weekly expenditure which we’re sure you all love!
Reduced Distractions - According to a study by Airtasker, telecommuters "worked 1.4 more days every month, or 16.8 more days every year" than people who worked in an office. The effect of working from home improves your productivity as it can reduce the distraction in the office; unless you have young ones.
No Commute - A stressful commute is said to have negative psychological implications which affect the way you start your day. Having not to commute is one of the greatest benefits to your health and wellbeing, finance and time availability.
Customise your Workspace - An office can often be a dull work space but the great thing about working from home is that you get to decide on the aesthetics of your environment. We believe that having the right surroundings such as desk, seating, accessories, room, and lighting can all contribute to your work productivity.
