7 reasons to work from home

For many it is already a reality, for others a mere hypothesis. If you are considering working from home, we leave you the 7 reasons that can make you take this decision now!

If not so long ago the world went through a pandemic phase that forced (almost) all of us to retire to our homes and do our jobs remotely, today there are many who have chosen this way of working.

Either by choice and because the companies where they work allow it, or because, as freelancers, they develop their work automatically from their homes, there are many reasons that lead us to decide to work from home.

Here we leave you 7 reasons to work from home:

  1. Flexible hours. By working from home, you can be the master of your own timetable. Of course, this requires a great deal of self-regulation on your part. To keep you motivated, it is important to take breaks and not to mix domestic and work tasks. Otherwise, you will not be able to fulfil your objectives and you will have that feeling of never being able to disconnect from work.
  2. Reduction in travel expenses. One of the great advantages of working from home is that you do not have to pay anything for transport and travel. However, you will have to consider the extra costs (electricity, for example) of being at home all day.
  3. Better conciliation between family and professional life. Many people who work at home point out as one of the great advantages the fact of a greater and better conciliation between their personal and professional life. Among other things, this is due to the saving of time spent commuting between home and work, which will allow them to better carry out their domestic tasks, the time they spend with their family and time to develop leisure and recreational activities.
  4. Work from anywhere. This way of working allows you to work from any city in Portugal or even abroad, enjoying all the advantages that come with it. For example, getting a house at a cheaper price or being able to combine your family holidays with your work.
  5. New business opportunities. Would you like to start a new business? There are fast- growing professional areas such as social network management, real estate consultancy, sales website management, among others, which can be developed from home. Think about your professional experience, consider doing some training that will help you achieve your goal and go for it!
  6. Possibility of working with international companies. By working remotely, you can open your services to the world of international companies.
  7. A way to get new income. Whether it is full time, or even part time, think that there are numerous activities that you can develop from home to earn extra money.

But beware! All decisions must be made in conscience and, if there are many reasons in favor of this way of working, it is convenient to be aware of some adjustments to be made so that everything goes well with this decision. There are aspects to consider and that you should not neglect such as the organization and preparation of the workspace, the creation of routines and keeping in touch with other people to avoid situations of social isolation. These are important tips for the success of those who want to work remotely. 

If your goal is to work from home but you still can't find the right job for you, know that there are several ways to get remote work. Searching the internet by keyword, searching on job sites, or searching for companies with roles that suit this type of work are some of them.
