If you are fortunate enough to work from home either part or full time, you have a lot more time on your hands than you may realize. When you work outside the home the usual time span for work is 8-hours. You may also include an hour for commute time and another for lunch.
So you have this small window where you need to get everything done or you start to fall behind or are not meeting deadlines. This creates a special stress that is in addition to all the other time constraints you have to meet. However when you work at home it is not as limited.
You actually have 24-hours in a day and right off the top you can see where that is 3 times as much time as you have to get things done if you have a job. It is not only that you can take advantage of all the hours in a day, but you can use those hours in any way you feel most comfortable.
For example, if on Monday you want to go shopping and out to lunch, you can do your work when you get back. Then on Tuesday you want to dig in and get your work done first thing. So you work for 4-hours and then get ready to head out to the gym. When you get back maybe you do some more work or not.
The point is you can both meet deadlines and be flexible. You can be comfortable. This type of environment is what stimulates creativity and productivity. If you enjoy what you are doing, it makes life so much more fun. Of course if you have a family you can probably see where you would have more time to spend with them.
If you sit down right now and make a tentative schedule for the next week, you will see all the free time you have to fill in with both work and play, You may remember the song from the 60’s where they say ‘relax and float downstream’. You can do that!
