Working from home has its advantages September 22, 2009

I finished my big project yesterday on schedule and am looking forward to things calming down a bit for about a week or so until the next big job starts up. I’ve really been enjoying the comments on the last post on whether you work with distractions. It seems as if, like me, most people prefer to work in silence or have quiet music in the background. And no one takes naps. That said, working from home does have its advantages. I have a small translation to work on, but I am planning a big cleaning day today. A fall cleaning if you will. Hope you all are having a great week!

I am a proud nap-taker, when time allows. 🙂

I think you were the only one willing to go on record as being one 🙂

Napping makes me more efficient, not to mention far happy then brain fired. I’m convinced if world leaders took more naps we’d be closer to world peace. 😀

Hi, I’ve read for a while but am posting for the first time.
Personally, I don’t take naps but I do always find it useful to get away from the PC for something to get the heart pumping and to relax my eyes such as taking a walk.
I don’t usually nap but do often sleep in 🙂

Well, yeah, it goes without saying that we all sleep in 😉 My clients know not to expect to hear from me until 10 am EST. That’s one of the joys of freelancing.

I’m a huge fan of naps. When I was working full-time as a freelancer my 3pm nap was the one constant of each day. It also turns out that napping is really quite good for you:

Yes! Jody, this article is great. I knew naps made the world a safer place. 😛
