Working from home? Here are some things you can do with your extra time. And here’s how life insurance can help.
Working from home can have a lot of benefits, like getting important things done in your sweats with a cup of coffee. But, many people don’t realize relocating to a home office can free up a lot of time, too. In fact, you can even apply for life insurance in 15 minutes!
Whether you’ve always been working from home or you’ve recently made the change, you have probably realized that working from home can save you both money and time. How much time? According to Fox News, 8 hours per week.
But what can you do with your extra time? We have some ideas to help you make the best use of it.
- Organize and declutter. How organized would your home be if you dedicated your extra hour a day to creating a place for everything? If you’re not naturally organized (and many of us aren’t), there are resources out there to help you build a system that works. The KonMari method has been in the news recently. You can find out more about it here.
- Get your documents in order. While you’re getting your home organized, take some time to organize your important financial documents, too. Things like tax records, deeds and mortgage paperwork, wills and passwords to your financial accounts should be kept safely in one place, where someone you trust can get to them if they’re needed.
- Deep clean your home. In today’s busy world, it’s not easy to keep a spotless home. And most of us would need more hours in the day to make something like that happen. Telecommuting can give you an extra hour or so (at least) to make cleaning a little easier.
- Learn a new skill. Why not put your extra time toward a personal goal? If there’s something you want to learn (like a new language), check out EdX. You can find thousands of free classes from top colleges and universities there.
- Build new habits. Want to start keeping a journal or meditating in the morning? Now might be a good time to do it. Yoga Journal, a leading health and wellness magazine, put together a list of the best free guided meditations available online. You can find it here.
- Mark some things off your (financial planning) list. Maybe you’ve been meaning to get around to something like working on your budget to save money or finally getting a life insurance quote. Your extra morning (or evening) minutes can make that easier to fit in.
Using your time for personal growth can be rewarding, but there is something to be said for tackling your financial planning and organization goals, too. Things like planning a budget, balancing your checkbook or working toward a savings goal might not sound as glamorous as finally picking up that creative writing course you’ve always wanted to take, but they can give you valuable peace of mind. Plus, they can make things easier on your loved ones if something unexpected happens.
And some of the steps that can make things easier won’t even take the entire time you might have spent commuting on a Thursday. For example, if you don’t already have a final expense whole life insurance policy, you might use some of your extra time to look into your options and find something that fits your needs and budget. You might be surprised at how little time it actually takes to get a life insurance quote, and how big of a difference having a policy can make for your family. Funerals can cost thousands of dollars, and those prices don’t include medical expenses and other monthly bills that will still be due.
