One major advantage of working from home is you will save time on commuting from home to office.
Depending on the kind of work you do, you are not bound by the 9-6 life. You can choose to work whenever you want. This way, you will get to spend more time with family and friends doing the activities that matter most to you.
Again, depending on the job, you will have complete freedom to work the way you want to.
If you want to take a break right now, you can. If you think now is a good time to go to the supermarket, you can do that, too.
There is no office in the world where “office politics” do not exist. Rivalry always happens between co-workers, and if the politics of the office get involved, this becomes a toxic environment. There is no mental pressure, and you can work as freely and as creatively as you like.
When you work from home, there are no travel expenses, no expensive company meals, and no expensive formal clothes for the office.
Although work pressure exists in any kind of work (including home-based work), it’s always less substantial than working in an office.
You don’t need to rush out of your house in the morning to get to the office on time.
You don’t have to face your annoying co-workers every day.
Your stress levels will automatically reduce, and you can give 100% to your work.
