  1. Remote work means that you can dress as casual as you’d like, and for me that always means sweatpants. This meme is me to a T.  
  1.  I am for sure an introvert, so staying at home is kind of my jam. However, I know plenty of people who need that social interaction. If you’re struggling and feeling lonely, make sure to reach out! Also, this post about staying connected as a remote team can help as well.
  1. It is always interesting to see your co-workers in their home environments. Plus, animals (and work memes) are cute and usually more interesting than the meeting anyway. 
  1. This is SUPER obnoxious and often these questions can be answered in an email or something similar. But we all have that one co-worker who doesn’t seem to care about the length of meetings. I’m glad we have a funny meme that explains how we all feel when this happens. 
  1. Imagine being bored to tears in your virtual meeting that never stops. Because everybody needs to show how their idea is better. To keep yourself from falling asleep you distract yourself on your other screen. Only, when it’s your turn, you share the wrong screen. All of your coworkers get to see #7 of the “top ten facts about outhouses that you never knew” because you were jumping from page to page trying to find something interesting. Yikes.
  1. A huge benefit to working from home is not having to commute to work. Did you know, the average commuting time is 26.1 minutes? And that’s just one way! Being able to spend that time at home instead of in the car is pretty great. Plus, you save money on gas.
  1. This meme explains perfectly why you should at least brush your hair before settling into your home office. 
  1. Whether it’s your animals, children (which, let’s be honest, can act like animals sometimes), or funny memes, you are bound to get distracted at work. If you need tips for working remotely, check out this article that contains great ideas to help you stay focused and productive. 
  1. A great self-esteem boost if you ask me, and you don’t even have to dress “professionally” to achieve this status while working from home. 
  1. Productivity levels are probably not at their highest while working from home. I'm currently holding a baby and getting distracted by funny memes while typing this article. So that probably tells you how productive my workdays are. 
  1. Probably my least favorite aspect of working from home. There’s just something about being in an actual office that helps the time go by a little quicker. 
  1. Another reminder to please get out of the house once in a while so this doesn’t happen to you. Just because you’re working remotely doesn’t mean you can’t leave your home ;). 

13. No matter where your home office is, I hope you're able to stay focused most of the time.
