My Remote Work Revolution: Embracing Flexibility and Independence



I thought my life at work changed when I started working from home, but it turns out that it didn’t. It’s been completely transformed. I’ve discovered a host of new advantages to working this way that I could never even imagine in a normal office setting. The biggest one is the flexibility I can create and organize as I see fit. Rather than forcing my workflow into the traditional 9-5 workday, I have complete control over my schedule. I can tailor my day – start in the morning and end early; start late and finish late; leave in the middle of the day to go for a bike ride; take long breaks or no breaks with lunch – so that my work fits into my life rather than taking it over. But the flexibility advantage runs much deeper than just the hours I work.


 Indeed, no longer commuting daily is another big plus. No rushing to catch a train, no hours spent and stress generated sitting in bumper-to-bumper cars. The extra minutes saved and the extra peace my day starts with highlight another benefit. With not commuting, I have some extra hours to put into a different activity that will contribute to an improvement in my health – say, exercising; spending time with family; having an unhurried breakfast.


Second, another major benefit of working from home is the autonomy and independence that it brings along. Instead of spending my precious time on a lot of things away from real work and under the close supervision of my employers who are sitting next to me, being able to work at home, amidst others that can distract me, will increase my ability to focus and execute my tasks and projects in a deeper level. Furthermore, this introduces more autonomy, freedom, and trust into my working life, which rewards me for being more responsible and productive, giving me the opportunity to do more things my way without a glimpse of an eye from my employers.


In conclusion, there are several advantages to not having to go to the office, which are much more than a simple ease of life. Rather, remote working has led to a whole new work-life balance, an improved well-being, and greater productivity. Thanks to home-based working, I am free to create a routine for having the best working day ever, tailoring it to my lifestyle, my daily habits, and my conditions.
