I have enjoyed the transition into absolutely working from my property for a change.
I never really thought I would thrive in an environment where I’d be forced to stay isolated from comforting coworkers, but I am now doing absolutely well with the change.
There were a few complications at first with staying on task with my computer & constant unsupervised internet access. But happily, it was only a month or two for the transition to really set in. Nowadays, I’m more productive than I have ever been. I get up at the same time every day & I have my coffee maker ready to go. My dog is getting the most love & attention he has ever acquired, & the drop in gasoline use takes away a huge financial drain. Unfortunately, I cannot say the effects have been only positive. I am using more water & electricity while I’m at my property regularly. Between washing my hands for 20 seconds every 15 to 20 minutes & the additional drain on my electricity from the central Heating & A/C equipment, my expenses on utilities are starting to become costly. I’m always at home & I’m running the air conditioning equipment more than I ever have. I have observed that between 11am & 5pm is when the cooling equipment struggles the most. It is no shock in the least that this is the time when the sunlight is at its highest intensity for the day, & also when most of the property from front to back is getting radiated by a ton of sunlight. On top of more energy use, I also have to get A/C filters much more often, as well as stay on top of HVAC maintenance & service more frequently.
