Home Officing- First experiences

I was recently assigned several projects that involve a good deal of online research and presentation building. I think I’m not alone having considered what an experience working from home would be like, and I decided to try it. With freelance/consulting work potentially being in my future, this has been a great preview of what the next 30 years of my life could look like.

The Pros are plentiful. I really enjoyed working from home and got a surprisingly large amount of work done. I was able to listen to the music I wanted, as loud as I wanted. I was able to eat when I wanted, where I wanted, what I wanted, and with whom I wanted. I took relaxing breaks doing whatever, whenever I wanted. I was able to focus in on my work without constant interruptions from coworkers. I was able to enjoy the beautiful weather. I was productive on the job as well as with my personal affairs. I was happy.

The Cons are few, but they are there. I think I might have overeaten from my fridge full of food. I spent too much time on my break activities. I worked late into the evening due to my extended break periods. My posture suffered from lounging around on the couch all day.

Overall, I definitely reccomend giving the homeoffice style a shot. It’s been really great for me, and the more I work at home, the better I will become at controlling the distractions it offers. You feel much more motivated and comfortable in your own home, and you can get work done at your own pace.
