I have several friends working in organisatons ,where the employers have recognised the needs of their employees, and have allowed them to work from home. 'Teleworking', as this is called, is a boon to a lot of employees.. I envy them because they don’t have to rush in the morning working like a robot to reach their place of work in time. Their children never feel lonely at home and moms can attend them when they are ill without taking leave. I remember I’d to lock my children at home when they were very young and it used to be a cause of anxiety for both my husband and me.
Working from home gives you freedom and flexibility.. You can structure your day to suit your personal needs You have control over when you do your work. You don't have to buy expensive "work clothes". You also save money on commuting costs. No more driving to the office everyday. But my friends say that it’s not as rosy as I think. They lack the social interaction of the workplace. At times they feel cut off from the rest of the world and it becomes
difficult to motivate themselves . There are household chores to be done,and plenty of distractions
While working from home undoubtedly provides more flexibility, it can also provide a fair bit more stress. Because you work in the same place you live, you may feel obligated to get "a few chores" done while you're working. You can very easily become swamped with responsibilities
