Great Work-Life Balance with a Garden Office!

As one of the many consequences of the pandemic, working from home has become more and more popular over the last few years, with a variety of employers now allowing their employees to work from home on a regular basis. Perhaps you have been working from home before it became normal to do so, or maybe you have only just started working from home. Either way, it is likely that you are working from your lounge, bedroom, or other room inside the house. If this is the case, and you plan to work from home for the foreseeable future, it is still very important to have a work-life balance.

Working from home doesn’t necessarily guarantee a good work-life balance. In fact, many people fall into the trap of working into the time in which they would have been commuting to and from the office. Having a good work-life balance is crucial to our general well-being and can improve feelings of happiness, reduce feelings of stress, increase productivity, and even help us to feel valued by our employers.

If you have a garden, small or large, installing a garden office to work from could enable you to achieve a better work-life balance.

The benefits of a garden office

If you have a garden, then you probably enjoy working from it when the weather is nice enough to do so. It feels great to sit outside amongst nature and get some natural light on your skin, even if you are working! Unfortunately, we have something called the ‘Great British Weather’ to contend with. This can change with no notice at all and mean that you are forced to retreat to your lounge, bedroom, or other room inside the house. How amazing would it be to retreat into your insulated garden office instead?

One of the garden office benefits is that you will now be able to separate work from home life. If you work from a room in your house, it can start to feel as though your place of work is the same as your place of rest, which may result in you never truly switching off from work. Clearly, this is not good for your work-life balance.

Another one of the garden office benefits is that you can really make the space your own and spread out in it. You can set out the desk and computer in the position that is best for you and take control of the lighting (which can be an issue when working indoors). You can wander outside into your garden more often for some fresh air as well.

Our insulated garden office buildings can be used all year round as they are fitted with optimised insulation so that they do not get too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter months. They are also the most energy-efficient garden rooms available on the market.
