Be There For The Bonding Moments In Your Family
Sure, the kids see you when you're walking out the door ,off to work etc but we may not fully know what's churning in the world of those small lives. What about what they do and how they face obstacles and fears ? What about being there when they need your comfort after someone bullied them at school, or when they are flush with pride having won that drawing contest ? You can't just pop in and out of a 9 to 5 schedule to witness these developments.Working from home allows you to be there when they happen and build bonds that'll last their lives .
Talking about working from “home,” home really can be anywhere. All you need is a laptop and an Internet connection.You decide where you want to work from: your kitchen table, porch, favorite coffee shop, garage , the local library or even as you travel across the country spending time , building relationships to last with kith and kin and friends.The choice is yours.You are in an office of your own as a digital nomad !
Improve Your Health
Just figure out you don't have to spend hours on the road.Imagine spending the time saved on bicycle rides , or some fun time with close friends .What about some laps in the pool ?
Being home you have more control over your diet - you could prepare wholesome meals that build the health of those in the family and which lead on to healthy eating habits as well besides slimmer waistlines.
With so many of us driven to anxiety and suffering it's consequences these days you'll be able to raft away from it's slow burn that gnaws at your sense of happiness.What gain is it if you are celebrated at work but 'celibate' in the relationships that most matter - with your children ?
Being home nudges you to do things that you love , bask in simple pleasures and finding purpose in life. And listening to your heart - all of which are precious to your emotional health.
Don't forget you'll be there when you're needed , somehow and some way.If ever someone's in trouble you could be there on the double.
