It is getting towards that time again when the days are longer, the weather is brighter and warmer, and we can hopefully enjoy some sun in the garden, between the rain showers. These showers have been far and few this year and we have been spoilt by the regular sunshine. This is a great time of year for the home business owners, because it means we can get outside and enjoy some fresh air when we need a break.

Running a business from home can be very isolating, because you are constantly at home working, and you often have no need to go out at all. You can certainly get exercise
without going outdoors, thanks to things like exercise bikes and now the Wii as well, but there is no substitute for getting some fresh air on a daily basis. It does your mind and body the world of good to spend some time in the garden.

Fortunately with today’s technology we can enjoy working outdoors easier than we would have been able to in the past. For example if you have a laptop and Wi-Fi you can go outside in the garden, and work on battery power for a few hours. Provided you are sitting in the shade you can do so perfectly easily and have the convenience of the internet to use as well.

A lot depends on the type of work you do of course, but most computer based work can easily be done outside if you have Wi-Fi installed in your home. You may not want to spend all day out in the garden, but you can enjoy having a few hours outside when it is the right temperature. Not too hot and not too cold. Apart from anything else you will get some sun and fresh air, and also a change of scenery. This alone is good for your health as working in your home office all the time can be very tiring, repetitive and dull.

One thing you do have to be careful of however is that you can end up being distracted from what needs to be done. Your neighbour might think you are relaxing and pop over for a coffee when you really need to be getting some work done. You might end up sunbathing when you have a deadline to meet. Alternatively you might find those weeds in your flowerbeds a bit of a distraction, and you might have to pull those out before you do anything else. If you tend to be a bit like this you have to be aware of the possibility that you will end up getting less done if you leave your home office.

If it suits you to work outside for an hour or two in the morning before coming back indoors again, try it out. Alternatively you might want to get plenty done in the early hours of the day before enjoying some of the afternoon sunshine instead. If the bulk of your work is done before you head outside, you can relax a bit more and still get something else done at the same time.

So consider the outdoors this summer, make the garden your office and enjoy the weather whilst it lasts!
