Do you desire to work from home but prefer a job that is not too heavy?  By that I mean, something that could be considered complex, complicated, or extremely demanding.  If so, I have a few work-at-home jobs that are perfect for beginners and others who may have not fully dabbled into the work-at-home arena.

Get a resume that will pass the ATS tracking system for better results

Most of these jobs allow you to set your own schedule or work when you choose to.  Of course, there may be some exceptions to this rule because every work-at-home job is not exactly the same but you are free to select from the jobs that appeal to you the most and apply to those.  Many of these companies have very basic requirements for their remote workers which means that you will have a greater chance of being able to secure seasonal work, temporary employment, and in some cases full-time employment.
