When I started experiencing a decline in my health, I could no longer do my job at the office.
I was unable to drive there, because my vision started to fail in one eye, so I had to find a way to get things done from home.
There are a ton of things you can do to accommodate a decline in health when you’re in the comfort of your own house. On the other hand, driving when your vision is declining is not something you can accommodate for. My boss was reluctant at the idea of me working from home, and I honestly thought I would get fired. However, after explaining the situation plus convincing him that my computer set-up at home is the same as the office, he offered me a one week trial. I only have a small office space in my house, but the first thing I had to do was to set the office up comfortably. One of the first things my husband did to get my office space set up, was to install a large monitor for my computer. My monitor is just as large as the TV in our living room now! With the added heat inside the tiny room, I had to have a superb Heating as well as Air Conditioning set up. It was super tepid in the office and I would be dripping with sweat within minutes. My husband and I used to avoid the room in the winter, because it was freezing. I wanted to keep the office door closed to keep out extra sounds when I was working. My husband installed ductless mini split system into the office, because the mini split Heating as well as Air Conditioning system runs with less noise as well as it is unquestionably efficient. The cool air and warm heat it supplies is perfect for my everyday needs. I have now been working from home for over two months, as well as enjoying every second of it.
