Now that we are relying on our own places to work since Covid-19 took over the world, the topic of working from home has come under a magnifying glass.

Why Working From Home is a Great Idea
There are many advantages to working from home. For example, you have no travel time and you can often arrange your time completely on your own. You have now more time to bring your child to school (or daycare), more time to cook, do some errands or attend an online sport class. Moreover, thanks to better concentration and increased productivity, the quality of work increases. Meetings are mostly more productive and shorter and there is in general less noise in your house. Often, working from home also reduces stress and reduces the number of absences due to illness.
