Working from home is a great option especially when you’re sick and tired of going to work—which can feel like hell with EDSA traffic. You won’t have to deal with traffic, heat, and pollution anymore. You won’t spend extra on gas and parking. You can wake up much later. You can even work on your bed or your couch, and eat while you’re at it!

But it’s not for everybody. As comfortable as it may be, it might not be best for your work life. Here’s what you need to know before you can say working from home is for you. (Of course, your boss might have stricter standards.)

Impeccable internet connection.
Your online presence is the presence that your boss, the rest of the company, and your clients will be counting on. If you can’t even open a web page, much less send an e-mail or go on Skype, you can’t get any work done.

Fast-working desktop/laptop.
There shouldn’t be any lag when you have more than 12 tabs open, you’re using Word, and playing music on iTunes. Every task has to go smoothly and swiftly.

You’re focused.
Your focus depends on you, not on external objects. Can you work without constantly checking Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? Can you work without thinking about unrelated things?

You know how to keep yourself energized.
Being snug on your couch will make you sleepy when you need to be up. So drink your coffee, snack on fruits, stretch, do whatever will keep you alert.
