Technology has allowed many people to work from home but the trend hasn’t reached the level it could. Working remotely has mostly been associated with digital nomads travelling the world whilst staying connected, but all that has changed.
Until now, working remotely has been an occasional treat for many office-based workers but millions of people have been asked to work from home. This was a necessary step considering the unprecedented times of uncertainty we face around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Technology today means that more start up businesses are being run from home and flexible employers are also beginning to take the leap and allow staff to work from home. There is no commute and the quieter work environment may mean more work gets done. However, if you’re working alone from home, you can easily fall into a few bad habits. Normal everyday tasks at home can cause distractions and take you away from your work – just one more load of washing, a quick clean up around garden. On the flip side, it’s all to easy to launch yourself headlong into something and forget to take breaks or work much longer into the evening than you would if an office.
