How can you be more productive in a coworking space than working from home?
In the past couple of years, there has been a huge influx of remote workers for obvious reasons. However, even though working remotely from home sounds like a great idea, it can actually be a detriment to your productivity. Today, we’re going to discuss why coworking spaces are better for productivity when compared to working from home.
Active Work Atmosphere
Working from home has its advantages, but it definitely has its downsides as well. One of the biggest is that you miss out on in-person social interactions, which can cause people to become withdrawn, depressed, or even socially inept. As you might imagine, this can hurt your productivity. The active work environment in coworking space can improve your mood and set you on the right path to success.
Reliable Wi-Fi Connection
Anyone who’s worked from home has experienced the most dreaded event they can imagine – lack of internet. When this happens, it can destroy your entire workday because it can make it harder for you to stay in contact with clients, conduct video meetings, etc. Coworking spaces are constantly monitored to avoid wi-fi interruptions so you’ll always be connected.
Naps to Recharge Energy
It’s been shown that many people are more productive when they take a short nap in the middle of the day. It’s obvious that if you’re working from home, you can nap anytime you want, but the problem is that your bed or couch is a little too familiar. This means that a simple 30-minute nap could turn into a two or three-hour snoozefest. Nap pods located in coworking spaces allow you to take a quick nap, recharge your energy, and get right back to work.
Keep Your Blood Pumping
It’s a simple fact that when you get your blood pumping throughout the day, you’re going to be more productive because both your body and mind are more alert and active. Coworking spaces offer workout equipment and machines, allowing you to take a break from your desk and go pump iron or hit the treadmill anytime you want. This is a wonderful way to get your blood pumping so you can stay productive for a longer period of time.
The truth is that most people who work from home don’t spend a ton of money on their desk or other office equipment, including their chair. Coworking spaces are known for having dedicated desks
and hot desks
, depending on how you prefer to work, but they also offer stand sit-to-stand desks, in addition to high-quality chairs designed for many hours of work at a time. These items will keep you more comfortable and engaged, even on the longest of workdays.
Private Offices Available
Many people who work from home aren’t alone for the entire day. They either have to deal with family members, roommates, or pets that, for whatever reason, seem to only need you while you’re trying to get work done. At a co-working space, you can opt for a private office that allows you to still be engaged with the hybrid workspace environment while having your own spot to close everyone out and concentrate on your work. You can also choose to work late at night in a non-private area where there will be fewer people.
Harder to Be Distracted
It takes a lot of discipline to work from home. Even those who are very successful at it find themselves adding on extra time at the end of the day or making up work the next day because they’ve allowed themselves to be distracted. This could be anything from binging a Netflix show to making multiple trips to the refrigerator. There are still certain distractions that can be found in a coworking space, such as Netflix availability and the internet as a whole, but it’s often much easier to stay focused.
24/7 Building Access
Unless you live alone, then you might find it difficult to work at certain times of the day because other people are at home or perhaps being on the computer in the middle of the night may disturb someone. If you sign up for a coworking space membership that includes 24/7 building access, you can work anytime you’d like – and you’ll be more productive when you do.
