Fancy working from home in your PJs on your bed while TV is on? Because why not?!
No more commuting, thank heavens!
It used to take me 3 hours just to get to the office and another 3 hours to travel back home. That’s 6 hours wasted! Those 6 hours I could have put into more productive activity (like sleeping). Traffic in Manila is horrendous and riding the MRT is like going through hell and back, for lack of better terms.
More fambam time
As a mom of 3 kids, I feel awful whenever I leave them to the babysitter. But poor mama got no choice, ain’t I? Now I am able to be with them 24/7 and check on them anytime. Like literally.
I stopped living paycheck to paycheck
I was earning an average of P20,000 ($400USD) with my previous office jobs and we were struggling to make ends meet. Since I no longer pay for commute, clothes, and child care, I am now able to save up money and invest whatever extra I have.
I’m earning more
I am able to take extra jobs and work extra hours which means more money for us 🙂
No BS work
No office drama, walang tsismisan trabaho lang.
I get more shit done and I learn new skills
When I was an office worker, I always worry about a lot of things. How my kids were doing, the horrible traffic, my annoying boss, overdue bills etc. At the end of the day, I question myself if I actually accomplished anything. Since I no longer worry that much now, I am able to give 100% of my attention to my work and I am sooo much more productive.
I am less stressed, happier and healthier
The level of anxiety and anger that I have towards the world and it’s citizens have slightly decreased since I started working from home.
Working remotely isn’t all it’s cracked up to be however I don’t think I’d go back to work at a traditional office set up any time soon.
Til next 😛
