I've got some friends who work remote jobs, and every day I grow more jealous of them during my one-hour commute.

Don’t be, I was remote for almost two years and I will never do it again. I’ve been working with PTs and chiropractors to workout all of the muscle imbalances I’ve developed from being sedentary for so long.

Look at it over time, your friends who spend hours sitting change their lifestyle to a slower and more sedentary life, which translates into health problems, you have movement, you are in the streets, you learn directly from people, and you have advantages that they do not.

I have friends who work online and some say that they would like to have my job and that spending the day sitting locked up at home is very boring in the long run, I think we all want what others have, right? Or is it that we don't know how to value what we have?

My office job is hybrid, we have to go to the office for approximately 25% time of the month. So either one day every week or one whole week every month. I think working from home is optimal cause in less busy times I am able to catch up with some chores. However, after being a waitress for 3 years (before and a bit after the pandemic) I have noticed I used to get so much more exercise for free, as a side effect of the job. Now I have to purposefully make time for exercise, going for walks etc.

Do not think that you are just the same thing happens to me, I think that one of the things that consume us the most about having to go to the office is the need to move from one place to another and burn time from our days just going from point a to b and coming back later

I recommend that you listen to audiobooks on the way to and from work, otherwise you will always feel that it is an important lost time since those 2 hours represent approximately 7% of the time of your day.

I do both, I have a part-time job in a restaurant and when I return home I have a customer service job, I can tell you that after that I learned to want to work in places with people, loneliness is only for the people who need it for me don't ;(

Envy will kill me one day, I'm in your same position.

I recently quit a job for the same reason and found a remote job. I love it right now, but I do worry that I won't feel the same a year from now. Grass is always greener, I guess.

I understand that I think it would be cool for a while to be able to stay home and work from home but at the same time I want to be able to get out in the public and move around some days I hate people some days I just crave to have a conversation with a customer It all depends on the day and commutes oh Lord my daughter just started a job where she's making an hour and a half commute to work and back home an hour and a half each way and she has a 5-year-old I don't know how she does it because I couldn't do it when they were little like that when my kids were little

Need for travel has been one reason why some of our jobs could not be outsourced to remote delivery & low cost off-shoring. If travel is fully or >50% eliminated, it can be a real threat to management consulting as we know it. So there needs to be an “optimal ratio” of travel to client locations, home office, and WFH, to protect our consulting models. Since we need some face time with clients, and some interaction with colleagues, the optimal balance should be possible. Share your thoughts.

I invited my SO to a work event where people are bringing a plus one. She said yes at first, then later followed up with an “if she can make it.” This happens almost every time I invite her to things, citing work. Last night I got really sad after that and couldn’t understand why she would never put me above work. She’s a dentist and has control over her schedule - can schedule treatment for another day or stop seeing patients at a certain time. Am I making a big deal out of a work event?
