With the current crisis in the world, many people may be having a difficult time adjusting to working from home, completely remotely. For people who are used to being in an office every day, it is definitely a major change. However, change is not always a negative thing, and it is important to always look at the silver lining of situations that are not ideal. Are you having a tough time adjusting to working from home? Here are a couple silver linings to having your home office:
- You’ve eliminated your commute. No one likes a long commute, and absolutely no one looks forward to the traffic that comes along with it. With your home office, you have completely eliminated your commute and can spend more time relaxing or get a head start on working earlier in the day, if needed.
- You can spend more time with your family. By working in your home office, you will be inevitably be able to spend more time with your family. If you have kids, you can appreciate the time you are getting with them that you normally would not have if you had to go into the office.
During these unprecedented and stressful times, looking at the silver lining greatly helps to reduce stress and anxiety, especially during a time of many life changes.
