5 Good Reasons To Work From Home

When I was still in the workforce 12 years ago, I had never heard of someone working from home. Of course I knew your job might let you telecommute from home a day or two a week, but when I found out that there are jobs that are totally home-based, I decided that was for me.

There are definite perks to working from home, and once you try it, it you may never look back.

Here are 5 good reasons to work from home:

No Stressful Commute

It’s hard enough getting your family dressed, fed, and out the door, without dealing with the crazy people you meet on the road. Now, you take a few steps to your home office, turn on the computer, sit in a comfy chair, and begin your day.

No Dress Code

I was always a fan of casual Fridays because I could exchange my stuffy work wardrobe for a comfy pair of jeans and sneakers. Now, casual day is every day and I can dress in whatever I want.

No Angry Boss

Many days you arrive at work in a good mood, and that quickly evaporates when the boss starts breathing down your neck about one thing or another.

Now, the boss is still there, but you communicate more by phone and email. If something makes you angry, you have time to cool off, and give a proper response.

Easier Problem Solving

You know how it is when something breaks down and you call the repairman. Most companies give a four-hour window, so you have to take off work and wait for them to show up.

If your children get sick at school, you don’t have to get permission to leave. Now, you can pick them up and take care of their needs at home.

More Stretch Breaks

I noticed when I was going in to the office, that I would get so involved in what I was doing, that i didn’t realize I was hunched up over the computer, and straining my back and neck.

Now, when the need arises, I take a short walk through the house, or do some stretching exercises at the desk.
