Benefits of working remotely

/ 2 min read

There have been a lot of posts about remote work. Recently, I’ve been able to experience and understand it better. I really enjoy the time I’ve spent working from home. I worked from home full time for about 4 months this summer. I now go into the office a few times a week as requested by my manager.

More creative sparks while working remotely

When I’m working from home I seem to have more creative sparks. My guess is that the majority of the things written below help my creativity. I haven’t counted but I believe going on short quick walks to take the doggo outside have resulted in most of my creative sparks.

Working remotely provides a quiet environment

Having a quiet work environment is really important to me. I have ADD and it can often be hard for me to concentrate in an open office environment without a quiet area. I often listen to music in the office to try and concentrate, but that doesn’t always help. Having half my time working in quiet is the single biggest factor in my productivity boost.

Eating healthy is easier when you work from home

Another huge advantage when working from is how easy it is to eat healthy. No need to spend time making and packing a healthy lunch. It’s super nice to just make a healthy lunch right when you want to eat. You also get the added bonus of saving some money by not eating out as much.

Pooping in your own toilet is a rarely talked about perk when working remote

Something I haven’t heard many remote workers talking about is being able to take a nice dump on a clean toilet without anyone listening.

Having pets around increases your happiness while working from home

This is what started my remote work life. This past May I got a new puppy. Her name is Belle and she’s a purebred Boston Terrier.

Having a pet around when you’re working is amazing. They remind you to take breaks every few hours and walk around. If you’re going through a higher stress situation at work your pets are right there to cover you in love.
