Recent studies show that 4 million Brits have left the daily commute behind. Working from home has never been so popular! But what exactly are the benefits to working from home? Read on for the home garden office benefits we feel made the top 5!
It’s less stressful
This one does seem obvious but it’s true! Working from home can greatly reduce your levels of stress. No more rushing around in the morning to make it to work on time. No more sitting, for what feels like hours, in traffic! Just take things at your own pace. And as we all know, the less stressed out you are, the happier you are. Which in turn can make you more productive. Not to mention lower levels of stress benefits your health too!
It saves you money
Working from home can save you money in ways you might not thought of! According to a study done by Santander in 2016, workers spent on average a 6th of their annual salary each year on going to work! This includes things like travel, food, childcare and clothing. And with the costs of childcare and petrol steadily increasing each year, there has never been a better time to work from home and save yourself some money to spend on the things that matter to you!
More time for yourself and/or your family
Having more time to spend on yourself or with your loved ones is always a bonus. With the average Brit spending two hours a day travelling to and from work, it’s easy to see why more and more people are opting for working from home. Whether you like to spend your extra time with the family, or concentrating on yourself, what’s important is that you have the choice.
Make your space your own
Other garden office benefits is being able to make your working space personal to you. Whether that be with plants and flowers, family photos or even bright vibrant colours. Whatever you want goes! And being happy in your personalised work-space is bound to help you focus and improve your productivity!
Having your own schedule
Working from home can give you the opportunity to be able to pick and choose your own schedule (unless of course you’re working to strict deadlines). The freedom this can give you is something we all dream about! Just imagine, no 6am alarms (unless like me you have a young child jumping on your bed as a wake-up call), no rushing out the door in the morning. Just taking your working day at your own pace. If, like me, you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy rushing around in the mornings, stressing yourself out, then a job working from home could be the right move to make!
