Is it healthy to work at home? I mean you are just at home, no interaction with other people outside your family. Is it healthy?

Its always healthy to work at home. I am working at home and i feel thats the best part of life. Be the boss of yourself. Theres no tension and no job pressure. Sit back on your chair and keep working. take rest when you like. Go out once in a while and have fun. People usually work at home after they retire from their job. THats life and life is happier when you have job at home. I love my home. Peace

I think the question should be - is it healthy to go out to work? You have so much more choice at home. You can decide when to sleep, when to eat, when to take a break, whether to go out 'cos it's a really nice day. The list is endless. Plus you stand a lot less risk of catching germs, getting run over ....

Is it healthy? That would be a yes & no question. Yes it is healthy as you get to spend time w/ your loved ones. As family comes 1st to me. No, as they are all driving me crazy. If my my mom did not become sick w/ cancer, I would have never moved home. So this is the unhealthy part as I am less productive being back home. Being back home has cut my usual 14hrs a day online to about 8-10 hours a day.

well depends on what kinda person you are, if you love interactions, then work at home suffocates you. if you are like me and enjoy solitude often, working at home is the perfect way to have your cake (earn) and eat it too (be alone!)

Working at home it's very nice and comfortable, just make your home good for working at home, but sometime we must interaction with other people outside the family.Actually work at home doesn't make you no interaction with other, just you don't have a partner for working, why you don't ask your wife or your husband to work together at home? Just take a servant to help you, but remember you have fund, tool, home to doing this, if you stay at parent in law home and have a litle fund to doing this I am afraid you will not get anything you want,accept your parent in law undenstand what are you doing.Some time you don't need a servant and it's make effective your home cost and this make healthy, why doing 30 minute job home like dishwashing, cooking, drying, cleaning it's good for your heart, metabolisme, try ask doctor, it's true? and why you try something in garden? it's make your eye beatiful because green it's vitamin for eye and you can doing another sport at home and make your home pleasant for your family

is it healthy to work at home? of course it is.. or at least i dont think its any less healthy than a full time job you have stress in both which is the main health issue for any job but working at home has so many positive advantages.. you are your own boss so going at your own pace makes it more enjoyable you have more control of your time - with all the automation services and tools out there you are never tied to your computer, giving you more freedom the reasons people start a home business vary from person to person but one is always the same - more free time which is the real bonus of a home businss as for not interacting with other people creating a business online doesnt have to be the end of your social interaction... you can start a business from home which although based online exists off line aswell one example of this is a glossy newsletter... hand delivered catalogs which tie to your website. many online businesses start with this (anyone ever hear of Avon) but you only have to move completely online if you want to

I've been running my business from my home since 1999, but I still get a lot of interaction outside the home when I conduct research and interview for articles. So, it hasn't been like a typical "work at home" situation in my case. There are more times when I am home alone than when I'm not, though, until my kids come home from school. It's not all that different than when I worked in a cubical, though. Only, in this case, I can wear my jammies and I don't have to deal with office politics. I'm far happier, I'm sick way less often, and I avoid all the stupid drama. LOL

Why of course it is, why wouldn't be? I can leave any time I want. If I don't feel like working I can do that to. I have all kinds of interaction and family has nothing to do with it. I know most people can not grasp the concept of working from home, and yet most every one wants to do it, go figure.

I think it is healtier to work home because you are less exposed to politions outside your home. It is even better working home because you can decide if you are going to have a break or not on your own lus you will have more time with your family and you won't have to worry about expenses getting to your work station.
