Does Telecommuting reduce road congestion?
“One drawback of working from home is that I still have to work when I’m sick”
Yeah seriously? Who would want that?
Alright so I know I veered from the question, but I think it’s important to look at all aspects.
Benefits of Telecommuting
Saves money. By working from home, you can save money on gas and food. We all know it costs more when you go out to eat. By staying home, you’re more likely to eat in.
Multitask. When working from home, you can get more done in your day. There are so many little household things that can be done while working on your phone, or watching an online conference on your computer. Toss some laundry into the wash, wipe down counters, vacuum, dust – to name a few. (These are things I easily do throughout the day while blogging, playing with my kids, and joining twitter parties).
Eat Healthier. I somewhat mentioned this under Saves Money, but by working at home, you’re less likely to go out to eat, or grab snacks from a vending machine. Instead you’ll probably find yourself grabbing an apple or banana, taking time to make lunch at home, and drink more water.
Your Time. Telecommuters, tell me if I’m wrong, but when you work from home, you mostly get to set your own hours. You can plan more time with your family, and do more things that you enjoy. Plus you don’t have to rush to get ready. You could stay in your jammies if you wanted to.
