What are the benefits when you work from home?

I would work from home and in the middle work for home as well. Work life balance is realised well here.#embrace-remote

Throughout my whole career (past 6 years) I've been mostly working for home.

It's hard to keep a good work/life balance especially if you have other people living with you (wife, kids etc).

Working from home surely has it's perks (you can work with pajamas, you can go to the toilet whenever you work, smote, get drinks etc).

You need to find ways to stay productive because it's easy to get your attention distracted.

My only tip is, try to take small breaks and walk around - and try to keep your previous 'office routine', where you would wake up, wash your face, brush your teeth, get dressed etc.

Work from home is an amazing thing. You stay with your family while working sometimes we do get tired of the same working routine.

 

My tip is to organize your workstation that increases productivity.

Working remotely from home, provides you a lot of benefits, but the only downside is that you forget when to stop :))

This is so true. Right now I'm spending around 10-12 hours on bed working on my laptop. While on office, it's was just 8 hours.  reviewedstore.com

Lots of benefits! Flexible hours, nobody watching how you sit or stand, no need to wear uncomfortably formal clothes just so the boss doesn't get pissed off, can actually grab a snack without anybody taunting, even have elaborate meals and follow diets.

For me, as a creative communication professional, it is hard to sit at one desk for 6-8 hours and stare at one computer screen. I prefer work from home because I can do whatever it takes to get creative, like workout or so g or dance or cook or eat or take a nap or on hot summer days, an extra shower!

I loved the way you expressed your work from home experience

I agree with most benefits. 

My favourite is work with personal psychologist, psychotherapist, massage therapist and just my catю

Yeap :) 

First of all I have enough time for working and I don't have to spend 2 more hours to go to my working place. That's the biggest benefit. I also can schedule my day the way I want to and remote work gives you an opportunity to manage your own time. I just need a chair, laptop, access to the internet, vpn and I can work freely. It's also important not to forget about confidence in internet so https://veepn.com/ is needed for sure

I do have the same liberty at home as all have. well listed my friend.

THe greatest benefit of working from home is passing more time with my son

That's really a time worth spending in life

The greatest benefit to work from home is to spend more time with my kids, avoid the long time passing in the trafic ! #embrace-remote

Yes very true where you dont waste your precious time on traffic

I'm used to working from home - I work 1-2 days a week on a regular basis, but now I work like this for 14 days at a time! It has the advantage that I get up "to work" later and during the day I can get things done in the city. The disadvantage is that it is sometimes difficult to finish work on time.

I just love the flexibility! I'm saving about 1,5 hours drive each day which I can use for something else. I can use my lunch brake to do something fun. In the afternoon, if I don't have any meetings scheduled, I can just decide to have a break and use the fact that the sun is shining to go on a ride with my bike and then go back to work afterwards. :)

I signed up for a course in the evening (thank you zoom!) - normally I would've been exhausted by the time I got to course after the commute. Now i can still rest a bit, have proper dinner before course starts. Or cram my homework 😳

Just need to watch those trousers that are getting harder to pull up everyday :D

Mirek Community Leader Apr 03, 2020

I do not like traffic jams which are very common, so the biggest benefit is that you are able to earn 1-2h in a day for something else than going to/from work! :)
