I worked in an office for many years and since I started my own biz, I work from home. All my friends and former colleagues warned me – they thought since I’m a very talkative person, I would feel very lonely. But in fact, it has been the best decision ever!
Refridgerator? Yes! But only in a positive way. Since I’m working at home I am actually cooking fresh meals and not stuffing my body with hastily inhaled food. And no, it doesn’t have to take much time to prepare proper food.
I can focus much better and am not constantly distracted by chatting colleagues/neighbours. You have to have a dedicated office though – when I still worked from my living from, I actually got massively distracted by all things going on at the street and I even started cleaning and stuff instead of working.
When I was still working in an office and I was surrounded by many people during long hours, I got tired of people and just wanted to be alone when I finally arrived home. Now it happens that I don’t leave home for a few days in a row and then of course I feel the need to meet people at some stage. But then I meet people I like to meet and no matter if it’s customers or friends, I’m much more relaxed, open and social.
To summarize it: since I’m working from home (1.5 years now) I’m much more efficient, I improved my social life, I eat healthier, and I’m not so stressed. I LOVE IT!
