"Why I Choose to Work Remote" [Creator's Block Ep. 94]

"Why I Choose to Work Remote" [Creator's Block Ep. 94]

This morning I read an article from Jason Zimdars, a designer at basecamp, about why he actually works from home.

Spoiler alert, it wasn’t about productivity at all, but rather about the practical reasons that we can sometimes take for granted.

Jason talks about the ways it allows him to spend more time with his kids and how those moments can be looked at as happy distractions and it got me thinking about the real reasons I’ve been working from home as well. 

Most of you know that I work full-time remote, despite only being about 35 minutes from our office. Why work remote you say? Lots of reasons. 

For me working from home means:

  • I get a little bit more sleep in the morning… and I LOVE my sleep. 😴

  • I get to spend less time in the car - I have terrible car anxiety. 🚘

  • I get to take a break by walking Kodi. 🐩

  • I can control the temperature. 🌡️

  • I can use my lunch break to get some chores or errands done. 🛒

  • My introverted side has less “recharging to do” 🔋

  • On a stressful day, I can get a hug from my boyfriend Jeremy or Kodi! 🤗

...and I could keep you here all day with the list that started forming in my head. So, today I thought it would be fun for Justine and I to talk about the REAL reasons that make working from home worth it every day.
