If you are a mother, especially a new one, the working world can seem daunting to say the least. You find yourself asking many questions; should I get a job? If so, should I go full time or part time? Office or retail.
You have to take so much into account before dredging back into the working world. But there is an option you may not have considered.
Could Working From Home Actually be What You’ve Been Looking For?
The most important thing you may be considering is your children. Will working from home still give them the time and love they deserve?
Well, that all depends on how exactly it is you budget your time. The truth is you likely have much more time to yourself than you realize.
Between play dates and laundry, you may feel like taking much more on your plate seems completely impossible.
Amazingly, if you can budget between nap times and lunch, you can get so much done. The trick is to work with your children and not try to work against them.
If you talk to your children, you can work towards your goals instead of constantly trying to restrain them. Kids love to work with Mommy and if you find task you can do together, you can not only get much more work done, but the time spent with your child will be one of quality and joy.
This really not only helps you, but ultimately helps your child learn responsibility as well. It’s really a win win!
These moments working from home can be surprisingly productive. It’s not about the professional life, but your personal life as well.
A daily commute to and from work may not seem like much time, but if even just a 10 minute drive could be saved by working from home, that’s 20 minutes you could be using to do any number of other things around the house.
Not only that, but the time you spend stressing out in traffic could be spent relaxing in front of your computer instead.
The less stress spent in your day means the less stress you have in life overall. The less stress you have overall means a longer, healthier life for you AND your family.
And Speaking of a Healthier Life.
How often have you wished for more time to do things right for your body? If only you have more time you could cook those healthy meals.
If only you had more time, you could exercise. If you work from home and make your own hours, you make ALL of your own hours.
Making all your own hours in fact means setting aside time for a more happy and healthy lifestyle. Instead of spending all that time in traffic, you could spend a minute or two on the treadmill.
You could be more fit and active within a matter of weeks!
Speaking of Time…
The best part of making your own hours is working whenever best suits you. For all of you insomniac mother’s out there, if you really can’t sleep, there is nothing to stop you from spending an hour or so on your chosen work at home craft in the dead of night.
You are able to get more done while hubby and baby sleep than you could in the middle of the day if you so chose.
As far as Money Goes…
You will find that the less you spend on gas, professional work attire, and overall office relations, the more money you will have to spend on a better life.
Consider how much you spend on gas a week. Is it twenty dollars? Thirty? Imagine if you were to put that money towards your child’s education instead.
This also saves you untold amounts on child care, not to mention peace of mind knowing that your child has the best care possible…you!
Never again will you have to put off a meeting in order to pick up or drop off junior at a place that you, quit frankly, have virtually no idea how your child’s day really went.

And if you do so chose to Commute
Perhaps take a little vacation, the best part is that you can work freely where ever you work. If you work online, you can pack up tomorrow and all you’d need is an internet connection and a computer.
Virtually any and all motels and hotels offer free Wi-Fi and more often than not even provide access to the latest computers either in room or at least in the lobby.
If everything you need is already online or can be saved on a flash drive, you are free to wonder wherever you wish and still make money on a daily basis.
You can travel virtually anywhere in the world and still get a paycheck by working just a few hours a day, which most people only dream of.
And let’s talk about comfort
One of the most simple things in life is to simply be comfortable. In an office you find yourself stuffy, hot, maybe cold, in tight clothes, never really feeling good about yourself.
At home you can do and wear exactly what you want. You can finally do the work that makes you happy while really being happy. And isn’t that really the point of life?
And so, these are just a few things that would make a moms life much easier with a work from home job. Weather you have clients or a talent that allows you to work for others in the comforts of your own dwelling, if you have the means and ability, you will find your life much easier overall if you can follow your dreams and make a real living doing what you love where you love to do it.
