hen I first set out
to write a piece
on health home
I thought I had
handle on the topic; after all, I have been
working from a home office since 2007.
After reaching out to several peers in our
industry, I realized that I had a lot to learn.
Working from home can sometimes be
akin to being marooned on a desert island.
You don't have co-workers around to point
out that you haven't moved from the same
position in over three hours or that you
really need to chuck your broken chair.
There are many benefits of working from
a home office: flexibility, no commute
and the ability to take a meeting in
sweats. However, the drawbacks include
unhealthy eating, lack of physical activity
and - the biggest challenge of all - the
inability to stop working even when your
work day should be done. In this article,
I will outline detailed tips from veteran
home office workers from all aspects of
our MPI community.
