Sometimes getting to and from the office can be a real feat of strength – sweaty, exhausting and epically long, no matter what city you live in.
London is a fitting example at the moment, where overcoming the obstacles of a particularly stressful commute can make the average office-goer feel as Herculean as the world-class athletes currently being put to the test all throughout the city. Most of us have had one of those commutes that was so arduous, it made us wish we’d never left home. It’s at moments like these that working from home with Skype can be a great alternative to the ‘rat-race’ of the daily commute, whether in London or beyond.
To illustrate this point, we’re having some fun this week; we’ve come up with a few commuter ‘challenges’ that we thought were especially apt considering the sporting atmosphere in London at present. Follow @Skype on Twitter to keep an eye out for our ideas on how the morning commute can sometimes be an athletic feat.
Do you work from home? What’s the best thing about it?
