In today’s world, many people are working remotely. They themselves can choose the schedule and the time when it is most convenient to carry out their duties. It would seem that what could be better? But scientists disagree with this statement. According to the recent studies, distant work can cause serious problems.

The scientists have found that working away from the office can cause insomnia and provoke people’s depression.

Conducting research

The experts took into account data from fifteen countries (ten of them are members of the European Union). It turned out that almost half of employees, working from home, experience constant stress. While this indicator among office workers is twice lower. 42% remote workers suffer from insomnia.

The scientists also found that office employees work more productively.
