The computer is one single piece of technology that has completely managed to revolutionize the way people work as well as how they carry out their business. It has led to a change in the way people work. Many professionals are today jumping out of their beds and heading to their offices located right in their sitting rooms. The following are ways your life will likely become different when you make the shift from the traditional office setup to working remotely.
You Choose How You Want Your Office to Look Like
Many remote workers choose to work from their homes. But this does not necessarily mean that you should locate a corner of your living home and then proceed to fill it with an ugly looking rolling chair, a clunky desk, and a huge monitor. You get to choose where you want the office to be, based on how you like to live your life.
You can use your kitchen as the office, or even convert your closet to make it a hidden office. It is upon you to work from wherever you are most comfortable at. What's even better is the fact that you no longer have to make the annoying morning commute.
You Get to Save Money
You will automatically notice a difference in your bank account as you no longer have to pay for gas for the ride to and from the office. This is not the only area you get to save on; there are other areas as well. For instance, you will no longer have to invest in a formal suit, and polished shoes so that you can fit in with the rest of the business community. This means that you no longer need to maintain separate wardrobes for work and for home activities. Another area you get to save on will be on food costs as you will no longer have to cough up money for lunch yet you can easily prepare a meal at your kitchen as you continue with your work.
Your Schedule Becomes Your Own
A majority of the tasks that are being done remotely happen to occur on very flexible schedules. You can take a myriad of courses online while keeping your job. There are business classes, technology classes, and medical billing and coding classes online among many other types of courses. You also do not have to give up your job or your life to take these classes because you can do it on your own schedule. You get to work when you feel that your schedule fits you perfectly. If you want to study, you can study when you want to study. If you are a night owl, this means that you do not have to worry about waking at 8 in the morning, as you can still get your 8 work hours at night.
Even if you still need to work during specific hours, the chances are that you have breaks in between where you can do whatever your heart pleases. It does not matter whether the break only lasts ten minutes, you will still be able to do something that you would not have done in an office, like tend to your children.
Your Meetings Can Become Enjoyable Allowing You to Learn More
No one enjoys attending meetings, free coffee and donuts notwithstanding. Remote working will allow you to choose what you want to take for breakfast, as well as choose a seat where you will be more comfortable. This allows you to become a more effective worker. Additionally, you can take part in a video call with more than ten people at a go by making a few clicks. The chat function in the video call will come handy when sharing docs or for adding vital comments without ever getting into another person's space.
Remote working is a trend that has been around for a few years and is definitely going to continue rising in popularity. Flexible working hours may be a done deal, but, this is a trend that will undoubtedly continue to spread.
Photographer John Price first picked up a camera in 2014, but his emboldened images have already caught the eye of the world with iconic imagery of the sharp, glaciated peaks of the Canadian Rockies as well as other breathtaking landscapes around the world. Having grown up in Canberra, Australia, Price was landlocked in a city but his imagination was always ignited by his family trips to the bush which were soaked in harsh vivid hues.

Alex Honnold, you better watch out. There’s some hot new competition in the world of free-soloing and it’s coming from this adorable raccoon. RELATED: Alex Honnold Free Climbs San Francisco What started out as a sad story about this raccoon being trapped on a ledge of the Town Square office building in St. Paul, Minnesota has turned into an incredible feat of athleticism: after maintenance workers unsuccessfully tried to coax the animal down, he started scaling the 25-story tower.
Do Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell have superpowers? It’s up for debate. Just last week, the two made headlines when they beat the speed record on the Nose of Yosemite's El Capitan by a whole nine minutes, coming in at a time of 2:10:53. In the world of speed climbing, taking off that much of a time margin was almost unprecedented. Then, on Monday, they returned to the climb and did the unbelievable: they came in at 2:01:53.
