Could working from home provide much-needed extra time?

Working from home every so often could help Britons who are struggling with too many things to do and not enough time.

According to a recent report from J.P. Morgan Asset Management, 'generation busy' is really feeling the strain, with two-fifths never managing to get to the bottom of their to-do list.

To tackle this, Brits need an average of three and a half hours extra a day – which equates to an extra day a week. Working from home can help with this by avoiding commuting time, which can be around two hours a day for many people.

It appears that it is relaxation that is suffering in the time squeeze. Indeed, 30 per cent said that they would dedicate more time to themselves if they had an extra half hour a day, while 21 per cent would sleep for longer and 20 per cent would set aside more time for their partner or family.

Keith Evins, head of UK marketing at J.P. Morgan, commented: “We've all been there – stretched in different directions and not enough time in the day. With the pressures of work and life mounting it's no surprise Brits are feeling the strain, and wanting another three hours a day – an extra day a week – to get things done.”

He also urged people to make more time to consider their financial position, rather than pushing it aside until last thing.
