THE BEST TIPS IF YOU WORK FROM HOME!

Increasingly, we have more options when it comes to our work life and working from the comfort of your home has become far more common than it used to be. Admittedly, most times, what you imagine that to look like is clinging to your laptop in bed, in comfy pyjamas, cuddling a hot mug of coffee and ultimately, living your best life.

Between the noise of generators, internet issues and having a one year old (for instance), working from home can be significantly challenging, contrary to what your 9-to-5 friends think.

So, here are a few tips on how to navigate the tricky world of working from the comfort of your home and be super effective at it (while even still in your PJs).
