Benefits to Working Remotely
Working remotely is first off great for opening up your schedule to accomplish what you need to throughout your day. Without spending up to two hours commuting per day, this time can be spent getting more work done, taking care of your wellbeing with exercise, or spending more time with your family. You have more liberty to work how and when you want, as opposed to having a fixed time and place to be during the week. As long as you have wifi, you can also travel. Codebru team members have travelled various countries since starting up, and enjoy the freedom to enjoy vacation outside of work.
Strategies for optimizing your remote work experience
You choose the best way to enhance your productivity, with little guidelines on how to do so. Being healthier and happier will always increase your work efficiency and output while you are at your desk. The desk itself takes on new form, as you may be most comfortable working from your living room, or at a standup desk, or even perhaps at a coffee shop or poolside. Spending time in foreign countries with lower cost of living is also an option, as opposed to staying in large urban centers working from anywhere affords you the option to save money and work from relaxed and cheap locations around the world.
How to be productive as a remote working team
Working remotely or from home can have an effect on your daily rhythm, it requires more self control than simply showing up 9 to 5. Generally working remote changes your rhythm to be constantly online and working. In a remote working situation such as with Codebru, you will also find your team members start to be more geographically distributed. Working remotely means you must be ready to work during early or late hours sometimes in order to keep up with your team. To best take advantage of working remotely, having some core hours overlapping with your team mates where you can resolve any ongoing issues is crucial. There is also a matter of balancing your personal life, it is important to explain to your loved ones in the household that when you are working you cannot allow for distractions to effect your focus.
