Working from home can sound like an ideal situation, but as a lot of us know, that isn’t always the case. I have been working from home since November 2019 and some days it can really feel like all I do is work. When you work inside your own home it can be hard to know where exactly that boundary is between work time and off time. It can be even harder if there’s not an designated extra bedroom you use as your office, but it is important to remember that work isn’t your life’s purpose.
Being at home for 8 hours a day for work can also make the four walls of your house seem like a little prison, but a little decoration can do wonders! When you really feel like you can’t stand to be in your home anymore, that’s when I take my laptop and my hotspot and sit outside at a park or on my balcony for a little. A change of scenery, even a small one can help my feel refreshed.
Lastly, when time permits having something I really love to do helps me channel any restlessness I might have into something productive. I love being creative and taking photos and reading so when things are slow I turn to one of those hobbies to help pass the time.
I’m sure so many of you have experiences these woes when working from home but in the end, sleeping in, more free time, and not having a morning commute really help to ease any issues we might have. My favorite part about working from home is not having to drive two hours to work everyday and getting to spend more time with my husband. Because when it’s really all said and done working from home is a privilege a lot of people would love to have.
