Working from home is by far my favourite thing about my job. Although I live walking distance from my place of employment, it’s still amazing to wake up and not have to go in to the office.
I get so much more work done at home than at work. This is because there are no distractions, no one stopping at my desk for a quick chat, no endless meetings that could have been resolved in an email. I have no choice but to work when I’m at home.
I can also eat as much as I want. There is a no hot food at your desk policy at work. Which is great because it means you don’t have to smell other people’s food when you’re trying to work. But at home I can eat all the hot food I want whilst working.
Another perk of working from home is extra sleep. Especially during my lunch break, I can take a long nap in the middle of the day.
And finally, working from home makes me appreciate being in the office more. Having lunch with my friends, spending 30 minutes at someone’s desk just catching up, all of it is gone. The social interaction aspect is completely gone when I’m working from home, which makes me appreciate it so much more.
