Working from home, or WFH, allows you to build your schedule as you want, to take breaks whenever you want, to eat, drink and sleep whenever your body tells you to. Working from home also alienates you and gives you a bit too much time alone; after a while of working from home you start noticing that you’ve lost quite a few social skills that you gained working in an office. But then again, every job has pros and coms and working from home is a dream for many. That is exactly why there are so few good jobs working from home.
