When Was the Last Time We All Were Working From Home? Answer: 1840’s Working on a Farm


The last time most of the population was self-employed was in the 1840’s. During that time most people were laborers, or farmers. Mostly being farmers where everyone in the family had a role on the farm doing hard physical work. Fast forward to 2020, we are in the middle of a borderline pandemic where the majority of people are working from home with a different dynamic. Today’s working from home dynamic is sitting at a desk with a laptop getting the work done. I think that to make the dynamic a little better you need to get active! Take the time out of your day to go outside for a walk, get some exercise to break up the day. We are physical beings.
