Adjusting to remote working isn’t as simple as taking your office tasks and doing them at home. It also means understanding the changes to the environment that impact things like travel, time off, and even taking your lunch break. This is an interesting article from BuzzFeed:
After working office jobs that required long commutes and stringent 9-to-5 work schedules, I woke up and decided it wasn’t how I wanted to spend the next 50 years of my life.
I love office camaraderie as much as anyone, but an over one-hour commute before and after a more than eight-hour workday leaves little time for fun, and the belief that a workday has to fall between certain hours feels super outdated to me. So I joined the remote work world in 2015 – transitioning from freelancing to a full-time work-from-home job and back again.
