Do You Work in Your Pyjamas?

It’s difficult to say whether working from home or in an office is the better option.


When working from home you do not have any travelling costs.  You do not have to pay for petrol, train, bus, taxi or have any other expenses in order to get to work.  You can save your soles as well!  Walking to work can be very wearing on the shoe leather or the trainer rubber!


Now, this may be a downfall.

You can work 24/7 when you are at home.  Providing you do not upset or disturb others in the house.  And this is okay if you are a workaholic and can stay awake that long.  Maybe you have deadlines to meet and need to work until late in the night.  Maybe you have to get up early in the morning, before anyone else in the household, in order to finish some special project.


One thing that some homeworkers do, along with working 24 hours a day, is to neglect themselves.  You may go without breakfast or other meals because you get carried away with your job or whatever it is you are doing.  You may be an artist, writer, knitter, dog walker, piano teacher.  Whatever it is you do from home can get in the way of looking after yourself.  This is why I have called this post – Do You Work in Your Pyjamas? 


Yes, when working from home you may even neglect your job!  You may think you have all the time in the world and thus get up late, go to bed late because you are busy watching t.v. and then realise that you have only spent about ten minuets of your day actually working!  Not only can home life get in the way of your job but your work can get in the way of your home life – or this may be what is happening in your department.  You may keep finding other things to do instead of working.  Unnecessary things.  This has not got much to do with work, but I know when I should have gone to the gym I would clean the house and when the house needed cleaning I would go to the gym.  Strange how the mind works!


By having your home as your work environment you may find you have more time to give to your family, be they young or old, or even to parents and grandparents.  You may also find time to walk your dog!


Ah, there may be a drawback here with the phone constantly ringing in your ear whilst you are trying hard to concentrate on your work.


Yes, this has happened a great deal to me when working from home.  Not only does the phone appear to be ringing off the hook but family, friends and neighbours either phone up or pop round because they really do not believe that you are actually doing work.  They think you are just – at home!


When working from home you can feel as if you are in your own private little bubble.  No-one disturbs you.  You can write, knit or sew to your heart’s content.  However, you may neglect your social needs.  Do get out sometimes.  Meet up with friends.  Take a holiday or a weekend away.  Walk the dog or sit in the garden with the cat.  Find that special holiday island where there are no phones, no internet, no cars and just relax and enjoy!  Ah! Peace at last!


So, what to do when working from home to make sure you do work and do not just sit about chatting or watching t.v.

  • Set your hours of work.  Decide what hours you are going to work and stick to it.
  • Put the alarm on in the morning, if necessary.  And even set your alarm to make sure you get to bed at the right hour.  No sitting up watching late night t.v. if you need an early start in the morning.
  • Get dressed.  Wear your ‘office’ clothes or smart clothes as this can make you more productive.
  • Drink plenty of water, especially if you have the central heating on or the sun blazing through a window at you.
  • Set proper breaks.  Mid morning – lunch – mid afternoon – and set a time to finish your day.  Set alarms up for these breaks if you find it hard to stick to them.
  • Get outside if you can during at least one of your breaks.  Breathe in some outside fresh air.
  • Get our more often!
  • Meet up with a friend or family member at least once a week and definitely once a month.
  • Phone someone up for a little chat  in order to stay sane!
  • Make sure you really do enjoy working from home and if not then think about getting an office of your own or working in someone else’s office or even changing your job.  It’s never too late to change and you are never too old to change your job or your way of life.
