Shedworking in Scotland

The happiest commute is when work is only a 30 second stroll away, according to the latest research from Bank of Scotland’s Happiness Index.

When asked about their daily commute, it comes as no surprise to regular readers of Shedworking that farmers and those who work from home are happiest. The Index quantifies how happy Scots are with their daily commute, the method of transport and the amount of hours they work and found that part time workers are happiest.

While Scots who work between eight and 29 hours a week are the happiest workers, women enjoy these hours more than men. Part time workers aged 55 and over are the happiest of all age groups, closely followed by 45-54 year olds. For those poor souls who do have to commute, the car is the preferred method of travel, followed by bus, and walking in third place. Using the train is the least pleasurable option.

  1. Very good post! I do hear that people who work for themselves are the happiest.
