Thanks to major developments with technology, nowadays it is possible for people to work from just about anywhere. We all own laptops, smartphones and tablets that allow us to work and communicate with one another while we’re in the office, on the move, or at home.

It can be said that we’re currently witnessing a remote working revolution. The number of people choosing to work from home is constantly on the rise. In fact, it has been predicted that by 2015, a total 1.3 billion people across the globe will be working mobile, which equates to 37.2% of the total global workforce. Working from home has endless advantages and could be the perfect solution for professionals, freelancers or entrepreneurs; whether you are an employee of a company or own your own business. Here’s why it works:

Firstly, many people choose remote working due to flexibility. Remote working allows people to strike the balance between home and work life, and allows them to easily manage both. The flexibility remote working offers can be particularly beneficial for people with family commitments.

Working from home can also save you a considerable amount of money. You will not have to spend money on commuting, on office space rental, or on buying smart work clothes. Likewise, if you work from home, you’re more likely to make your own lunch each day instead of walking to the nearest shop on your lunch break.

People already working from home say they feel more productive in a personal workspace as opposed to a regular office. When working from the comfort of your own home, you are likely to feel more in control, which is likely to lower your job stress and increase your productivity levels.

That being said, if you choose to work remotely it is vital that you create a workspace that will fuel your productivity. Learn to separate your home and work life, which means making sure you cannot be distracted by any home issues while at work.
