I can’t decided if WFH is really for me. At the start of the pandemic, I worked from home for 2 months before I was laid off. At my next job, I was in the office full time which wasn’t weird for me because I barely got that WFH experience.
But at my new job I have been WFH for 5 months, returning to a hybrid schedule soon.
On one hand, the freedom that comes with working from home is unmatched. No commute, I don’t put make up on the mornings, I can eat and grab coffee whenever I want, I don’t have to worry about the dogs being home alone, I can run to appointments if I need to instead of taking off, the list goes on and on.
On the other hand, a lack of structure is not super ideal for me and I straight up suck at setting boundaries for myself. I work late and think about work a lot, I sleep in right up until I need to be online, I wear a lot of sweatpants, and I just don’t feel a lot of accountability.
I don’t think I could ever return to a fully in person office job. Being alone and in my own space is so important, but I also need a reason to not be in my pajamas every so often,
I guess a hybrid work style will be a good test for me to see which environment I thrive in more,
What about you? Are you an in-office, WFH, or hybrid kind of person?
