Aah, yes. That seems to be the most common effect as far as I can see--an affected sleep schedule. I edit journal articles and textbooks, and I get work assigned through out the day, so I have to be quick enough to accept or reject an assignment. Which means I do have to keep my phone and laptop by my bed at night, which doesn't really help. But that's ok since I still have a job and a steady income when many have lost theirs or are taking pay cuts. I'd def like some work-life balance though.

What do you do if I may ask? How has work-life balance been these past few months? Stay safe! :)

I've been able to control my eating so much better being home every day. Lot's of people I work with say the opposite, that they are tempted to eat more being at home. Something else that has changed is laundry. I wear the same few things over and over and never really put clothing away. Wear it one day, wash it, dry it, and back on the body from the laundry basket. No folding or hanging or sorting. I also sleep in later, get up make coffee and start working right away, take a mid morning break to get washed up. I'm also working longer hours because, why not? If something needs to get done I just keep working beyond normal quitting time. I sometimes feel guilty about doing dishes or some other chore in the middle of the day, like I'm getting away with something.

Since I'm working from home for the first time I've started jotting down some of the things I like and don't like about the experience so far.

Here's what I've got so far:

Pros:
  • I've been able to sleep more
  • I don't have to worry about my commute
  • I can work comfortably in sweatpants
  • It's quieter than my office
  • I can switch up where I want to work in my house
  • I can blast music without being judged
Cons:
  • I have more things to get me distracted
  • Stuck in the house all day
  • Communication with coworkers is trickier
  • Associating my home with work stress
I'm curious to see what other pros and cons people have about working from home. Please feel free to share them below.
Yeah i hear you. Well anyway here are my pros and cons:

PROS:
I get to take lunch whenever i want to
I can work by the heater
I can watch something while working at the same time

CONS:
I can eat lunch whenever i want to
Sometimes i spend the whole day without taking a shower (don't judge me lol)
The internet is sometimes distracting


But seriously apart from these pros and cons i find it quite easy to work simply cause of the kind work i do. The pay is decent on Paidera
and it's actually pretty basic. Try it out. Think you'll like it.


See if you like it. Later

I think the biggest con to working from home is the fact that your home space is no longer just that. It can become hard to enjoy your space, and your peace can become easily disrupted. It was difficult for me to transition to working solely from home and find the motivation to do things like keep my apartment clean and cook for myself because I thought, "I just spent all day on this computer, I do not wanna cook right now, I just wanna go out to eat", and something as small as that can turn into an all the time thing. Then, you realize your work space has become cluttered. That's actually where it usually starts for me- once I lose control in my workspace, why even bother in any other area of life? I found a great program that helps you get the start you need, and the tools to keep you moving forward on the right path. I've found much more balance in life by simply being coached there in a matter of just 2 months and I'm working so much smarter. Finding peace through your job will naturally flow into your everyday life and balance CAN be restored! Anyone can do this! Feel free to follow the link I've provided and review the program for yourself. I hope this can help you the way it has for me and my family. Blessings and happy living!

I'm a design technology A level student and I'm researching working at home and how I can improve it. I would really appreciated some input into the project, and have made a short survey:
Working From Home
If anyone could fill this in for me, I would really appreciate it!
