A few years ago, I was thinking about how I could change my life for the better. I wanted to be able to eliminate things from my daily routine that made me feel unhappy. After thinking about it for quite some time, I was thinking it would be great to spend more time with my family and children. I also thought about how much the commute to and from work made me unhappy. I always had to be commuting over an hour total each day, sometimes longer depending on traffic. Even during bad weather, like terrible rainstorms and snowstorms, I had to go out there and risk my life in those terrible driving conditions. There were times when I would have to call off work because of a terrible snowstorm, but I would try not to miss too much work. Then the thought came to me that I could try working from home. I finally decided to do that and now I have my own office in my home and I have so much more time with my family and kids. I decided to upgrade the HVAC system to HVAC zone control. I realize that my family and I have different temperature control preferences and with me being home all the time, I thought this was absolutely crucial for us. I also decided to install a smart thermostat so everybody could easily access the HVAC remotely from their cell phones or tablets. These past few years working from home have been wonderful and I wish I could have done this sooner. I can’t even tell you how much stress was relieved by eliminating the commute from my daily routine!
