I used to have a hour commute each way. At first I hated it.. then after a few months, I didnt mind it, autumn colors and ability to listen to the stereo at unreasonable levels. Then I found during the stressful and sometimes infuriating days, it was actually good to have that hour to decompress and not carry it into my home. I did it for 5 years. By then, my kid was in school and highly active in sports and stuff. It became apparent that was time lost for a future of important things to come. Then compensation stagnated so it was time to move on.

Now i work 3.5 miles from my house, now in work from home order. There is something to be said for remote work and minimal commute especially while raising family. I had to find ways to not bring the stresses home with maybe only marginal success.

I have always been more of a fan of traditional office environments with face to face interaction and social time with colleagues. Working from home was a nice perk when situations required. But if I choose to stay in this profession, the current world of events has shown that the industry is about to change and I am much more open to a more permanent remote work environment than I used to be.
