The Best Things about Working from Home


1  Sometimes I make a bed in my office

If I ever feel ill or tired I simply make a bed up in my office and work in bed. Obviously the downside to this is I don’t get sick leave but this is the next best thing, right?

2  I have a great deal of flexibility in my schedule

I like being able to organise my day and have control over which tasks I’m going to tackle and when. If I’m not feeling a certain task or something doesn’t go to plan, I can swap it up with the next day or push it back a week.

I can set my own goals and can quite literally set my career to go down any route I choose. This freedom means more to me than anything and I love that there are no limits to what I can achieve if I put my mind to it.

3  I have the world’s tiniest commute

Public transport makes me anxious and I generally don’t enjoy it at all so having an approximately 7 second commute which consists of walking to my office from my lounge is LIFE. Which leads me on to…

4  I save time

I used to spend at least 2 hours of my day commuting… TWO HOURS. It’s such a ridiculous amount of time to lose; I am so so thankful to be able to use that time productively. Not to mention that I rarely wear make up when I’m in my office all day so there’s a bit more time saved right there!

5  My dog buddy

Rather than leaving my dog alone for a few hours each day, she chills in my office with me. She sleeps on my lap or on the sofa and seems pretty happy!

I wouldn’t have been able to take my dog to work previously, and if I had she would have most likely borked at everyone and eaten things from the floor! No one needs that in their life.


6  I have control of my surroundings

I love interiors and the fact that I can my space my own, makes me so happy! I have my little inspiration wall and a sofa for if people come over. If I want to change it up, I can. The freedom is priceless.


I totally get that working from home isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But it’s definitely for me.

  1. I work from home two days a week (mon, fri), have two days a week off (tues, thurs) and work in the office the other day (weds). It works really well for me, as I get to be here with my indoor cat and keep him company, don’t have to take sick leave if I’m ill, and can sit with the telly on in the background, on my sofa under a blanket whilst I work. Working from home is freedom, in my opinion!
