Every morning I have breakfast with my wife and daughter, they leave at 8am for the school run. I head upstairs to spin on my indoor bike, or have 20 minutes of meditation, and then walk across the hall to my office and ready to start work fresh at 8:30am. I have lunch with my wife and when my daughter's home I hear about her day, and then catch up later in the evening too. I feel very fortunate to have this quality time with my family.
If you’re fortunate to have the freedom to work remotely, great! Rejoice in your freedom to get things done when, where, and how you work best! Jump up and down because you don’t have to get in a car for your twice-daily dose of soul-sucking traffic! Inhale deeply safe from the “hero” in the next cubicle who’s sick but came to the office anyway! Enjoy lunch with your spouse instead of in the break room with Connie from accounts payable! These are all tremendous benefits that make you healthier, happier and a better worker.
