As we’re now in February of 2021, you’ve likely heard A LOT about this current trend of working remotely – also labeled working online, working from home, teleworking, telecommuting, or working virtually. While the terms vary, the concept of working from another location (likely your home or coworking space) has gained major traction in the last few years. It’s true that when compared to in-person work, working remotely does have its own unique benefits such as flexibility, no commute time, increased productivity, and more!
Working from home, while it does have its advantages, can also come with some challenges. Feeling isolated, lack of motivation, and finding it difficult to balance work vs “personal time” can also be difficult.
