Today I’d like to talk to you about WFHing – ok, translation: working from home.
This is something I’ve been doing since 2013 and it’s given me an incredible amount of freedom I wouldn’t trade for the world.
I can pick when I work, for the most part, where I work: as long as I have wifi – and how I work. For many introverts, particularly those of the highly sensitive nature, being able to have this freedom over our environment is so, so important.
I’ve told my story plenty of times so I won’t go into it in depth, but just to use the example, being in an open plan office environment, having to clock in and out at certain times, commuting through a city – all of this was just phenomenally draining for me, and I’m sure for many of you.
I’m not sure of the exact stats, but more than 64 million Americans work from home now, at least part time. I think this is a good time for creative introverts and HSPs who are done with the office: employers are waking up to our individual needs and thx to the internet, there are more ways than ever to WFH.
But rather than try to convince you to work from home, I really want to focus on sharing my advice for those of you who already work from home, who are new to it and those who are considering it in the near future.
