Working from home has its ups and downs. For the past couple of years I've been mostly working from my home. Meaning my office is at home, but I do client, vendor and customer meetings out on "the field". With us moving to NYC this Spring I haven't had a chance or really the space to make my office ideal. But I have a little nook in our main space and it's working fine so far.
The perks of working from home is definitely the minimal commute to work, literally like 10 feet lol. And the fact that I can work in my PJ's or sweats on days where I don't feel like getting ready or put any makeup on. Also it's great that I can spend more time with our dog and not leave him at home for longer periods of time.
And the downside of working from home is that it becomes a bit lonely. And sometimes you don't get that clear line between what is work time and what is downtime. Plus some days it's extra hard to stay disciplined when you know that your commute back to that comfy bed is just 10 feet.... 😏
But I am going to enjoy these few more months of me working from home, because later this Fall I'll be (hopefully) finding a new job. With a proper office and real colleagues - I'm nervous you guys!!!
My office overlooks our living room. And what's nice is that we have big windows that let in a lot of light.
Writing this blog post is a great example of when it's easier to get distracted when working at home and controlling your own hours.. oops haha..
