Show of hands if you work from home. (✋!) Hi, hello, and welcome to the club. There’s plenty of us who have the privilege of rolling out of bed, working in our PJs half the time, and having the flexibility to pop in and out of the house as we see fit.

According to the 2017 State of Telecommuting in the U.S. Employee Workforce study, nearly 4 million US employees, or 2.9 percent of the total US workforce, work from home at least half of the time—up from 1.8 million in 2005 (a 115 percent increase since 2005). And, more recently, a study by IWG in May of this year found that more than two-thirds of people worldwide work remotely at least one day a week, while 53 percent work remotely for at least half of the week.

So, yes, this is quite a large club. And those part of this wonderful, massive telecommuting workforce know full well how easy it is to fall into a home office rut.
