Owing to the convenience of modern means of transportation and the advance ofcommunication technology, a growing number of people are granted chances tochoose their ideal workplaces and residence. As far as I am concerned, this tendency does lead to several desirable results.
The most obvious is that employees can be relieved from daily commutes. The long-distance communication as well as the internet technology provides conditions for staff to work at home, in which case, there is no need to spend hours on the way to offices, and suffer from the traffic congestion in rush hours. Additionally, a flexible working schedule maintains the balance between career and life. Instead of sitting in a certain room, dealing with assignment for fixed time frame, homeworkers can do exercise or attend fitness class in the morning; contact with clients and complete plans for projects in the afternoon. Obviously, under such a circumstance, it is less likely for them tobe subjected to huge stress from work, but increase their general satisfaction with life. Furthermore, this working pattern sparks inspiration and creativityespecially for writers and designers. Without being immersed in the wonder of nature or deeply appreciating the glamour of historical relics, hardly canthey create masterpieces.
Undeniably, residing places people prefer to generate some merits and the first one is to experience diverse landscapes and appealing humanistic environment of other regions. Imagine that how exciting for people frommountainous areas living in a coastal city. Besides, artistic projects such as sculptures, public art and lifestyles of local people enable newcomers to experience something refreshing and enlightening. Not to mention those who live abroad, their foreign language skills can be elevated and horizons of culture can be broadened.
In conclusion, although there is a concern that people may feel isolated from the society and live in an unstable life if working at home for longer period or changing dwellings too often, I firmly believe that this modern way of work and life boost working efficiency and enrich people’s life experience.
