IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Usually, working from home is about flexibility. Every single person will have a different schedule, which will make them more productive.
Batching is a common productivity strategy - group similar tasks together so your brain doesn't tire with too much context switching.
For example, to break your day into three-to four-hour work sessions with two- to three-hour breaks or naps in between. That way, you can focus on specific tasks during each session.
Not everyone follows unusual schedules all the time. Many work a standard 9 to 5. But working from home allows you to adjust your schedule on any given day.
With all the flexibility comes the responsibility to keep your calendar up to date, so your coworkers will know when you're available.
As long as your changing schedule doesn't take a toll on you or your coworkers' productivity, it's a great way to create a healthy work-life balance.
