Remote Work Expert Roy Meyer Shares His Insights on Work Life Balance

Roy Meyer

It wasn’t long ago that the only way to have a successful career was to work in an office, Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. But with advances in technology, that is no longer the case. Remote work has become a popular option for many professionals, and for a good reason – it offers a better work and life balance. For Roy Meyer, remote work allowed him to travel the world with his family without missing out on any work. This article will explore how remote work can offer a better work and life balance for professionals.

1) Increased Performance

One study from Stanford University found that employees who worked from home increased their productivity by 13 percent. For example, Roy Meyer could get more work done when he was traveling because he didn’t have any distractions. And without the need to commute, remote workers can use that extra time to get ahead on work or enjoy their personal life.

2) The Worker Gains Flexibility

You can often do it from anywhere in the world. If you have a laptop and an internet connection, you can work from a coffee shop, a library, or even a different country. This flexibility has allowed Roy Meyer to travel the world with his family without missing out on work.

While the traditional office setting may work for some, it doesn’t offer the same level of flexibility as remote work. If you’re looking for a better work-life balance, remote work is worth considering.

When you work in an office, it can be difficult to take a break when you need one. If you step away from your desk for too long, you may be seen as slacking off. However, when you work remotely, no one monitors how long your breaks are or whether you’re taking them. This allows you to take a break when you need it without feeling guilty about it.


3) Fewer Distractions From Colleagues

It can be easy to get distracted by colleagues in an office setting. Whether they’re chatting near your desk or having a loud conversation in the kitchen, these distractions can make it difficult to focus on work. When you work remotely, you can eliminate these distractions by working in a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted.

4) Better Life-Work Balance

The ability to set your own hours and work from anywhere gives you a lot of control over your work-life balance. If you need to take a break to pick up your kids from school or take them to soccer practice, you can do that without asking for permission. This flexibility allows you to create a schedule that works for you and your family.

5) Promotes Employee Well-Being

A study by Gallup found that employees who have a good work-life balance are more engaged and productive at work. According to Roy Meyer, “Working remotely has allowed me to have a better work-life balance, which has led to increased productivity at work. I can take the time I need for myself, which has led to improved mental and physical health.”

If you’re looking for a way to improve your work-life balance, remote work is a great option. It offers many benefits, including setting your own hours and working from anywhere in the world.
