Working from home is a dream for some people, while for others it would be a nightmare. If you value independence and flexibility above all then it could be a great transition for you. One of the main benefits of working from home is flexibility. Not only do you get to decide what time you start and finish work, you can also choose which space to work from (some days this could be a cafe or a library) and how to optimise your working conditions to whatever makes you the happiest. Proximity to home and family is another plus. No more sitting in traffic or spending time on public transport.
You can also expect to stress less when you work from home. With no daily commute and no dealing with unfriendly colleagues or sub-optimal work environments you will have less on your plate to stress about. You may also find yourself being more productive with the extra time you save. After all, once you get the required work done you can focus on something that's important to you.
Obviously if you are going to work from home you will need to be organised and disciplined. You will need to make sure that you are prioritising your tasks and not getting too distracted! Depending on your role you may need to deal with clients or work to deadlines so operating with integrity is important. Time management is also a big part of making working from home successful. Remember that some people can feel a little isolated when they work from home so make sure you still have some kind of social life!
