Pros of Working from Home
Depending on your job, you may be gaining flexibility with you schedule
Make a schedule for yourself
Parents: this is huge. My wife made a schedule breaking down every hour to a couple of hours. Breakfast, physical activities, educational time, video game time. Kids really need structure (and like it or not, adults do too).
Try to get in a physical activity. Hard with gym closures. Go for a walk that isn't around people. Lots of free Youtube fitness content.
Probably are going to work faster as long as you have boundaries set up with your family/roommates/etc.
Don't have to go to meetings that don't matter. You don't have to talk to Karen about how she couldn't find TP at Wal-Mart so she killed the store manager.
Cons of Working from Home
If your family is home with you, it can be hard to set boundaries. Find a place for yourself and declare it your office. When you are in there, you need to be left alone to work.
Isolation. Why we have these calls. It can get super depressing at times.
Sticking to a schedule, especially if you're freelance.
