I have subscribed to Dumb Little Man for life tips and hacks, and general fun reading. Today, they have a post about beating stress when working from home. It is true that many office workers are of the impression that working from home should be relatively stress free, but there are those (pro-bloggers, freelancers, etc) who say that it really isn't.
In that same article at DLM, there's a link to a New York Times article called "In Web World of 24/7 Stress, Writers Blog Till They Drop". Here, the writer talks about the lifestyle of several at home workers, specifically bloggers. He also talks to Micheal Arrington, founder and co-editor of TechCrunch, and Matt Buchanan of Gizmodo.
Take note that the Philippine lifestyle is different from that of the United States. Still, the article is a good read for those who work (and wish to work) at home. One's health and well being is very important, and no amount of money earned can ever compete with that.
