Getting Stressed Working From Home? A Coworking Space Can Help Boost Your Productivity!

coworking space featured

Let’s face it: working from home has its appeals. Whether you are a startup owner or a freelancer, the idea of working from your couch in your pajamas is always an attractive one. It’s definitely a flexible and money-saving option that allows you to earn and be with your loved ones at the same time.

It is, however, also true that working from home can bring its own unique challenges. 

Case in point, some work-from-home professionals report struggling with balancing their home chores and work-related tasks. Because they stay at home most of the time, the lines can get blurred between personal and work time, which can lead to reduced productivity. Completing daily goals can be challenging if one has to constantly take care of the kids or do some laundry in between. If not handled well, things can really be pretty stressful in this type of work environment. 

If this sounds like something you can relate with, we have good news for you: you have another option.

Instead of just enduring the same daily distractions while working from your home office, you may want to consider signing up for a coworking space membership.

Greater work-life balance

First and foremost, one of the most obvious benefits of working from a coworking space is that you get to enjoy a better work-life balance.

Besides, you get to focus more when you’re in a designated distraction-free space. Plus sticking to a daily schedule will be so much easier. You automatically switch to a mindset that you need to perform so you can make the most of your time (and money) in the coworking office. 

At the end of each day, you get to leave the place and go home to spend quality time with your family. You won’t have to worry about work-related matters anymore after you’ve put in all the needed hours for that.  

Coworking spaces are open 24/7 

Quality coworking companies operate on a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week basis. This allows you the flexibility to get your job done according to the time of your convenience. 

Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, you can bet your friendly coworking provider is ready to accommodate you. In fact, we here at The Farm SoHo even go so far as to fuel up our customers with free unlimited coffee and tea. So yes, your favorite beverages are on us - day or night! 

Opportunities to socialize, network, and collaborate

A Harvard Business Review article entitled ‘Why People Thrive in Coworking Spaces’ points out another benefit of joining coworking offices. According to the highly reputable website, people “feel part of a community” at coworking spaces. You get invited to fun and worthwhile social and professional events.

“Connections with others are a big reason why people pay to work in a communal space,” continued the article.

In addition, you get a lot of amazing opportunities to expand your network and collaborate with other professionals.

Another great post published on The Farm SoHo blog put it this way:

“In a coworking space, you can network with people who can help you advance in what you're trying to do. You can locate individuals who can do what you can't in a coworking setting. You can then collaborate with them to produce something that benefits both parties. Rather than sitting in front of a computer by yourself, it's always better to absorb knowledge from real life, by engaging and collaborating with others.”

A professional working space

Another bonus of a coworking space is that you have a professional space where you can do your job without spending extra money on furniture or hardware. You get to work in comfort as you use their ergonomic furniture. 

Want to print or scan documents? That won’t be a problem there either. Need to take a Zoom video call? The phone booths will allow you privacy. Meeting with a client or a prospective investor? Good coworking offices also have conference rooms for that purpose.

If you need mail management services, you can also go for a premium virtual mailbox subscription. This is ideal for those who need a formal business address (without having a physical office) or are constantly traveling and want to keep track of their parcels.

You can even bring your dog with you!

Can’t leave your beloved dog at home? Some coworking spaces are pet-friendly so feel free to bring your four-legged buddy to work with you!

Case in point, we here at The Farm SoHo are huge animal fans and are firm believers that they help boost our productivity and relieve our stress. Your furry friends are absolutely welcome in our spaces! 

Increased happiness in coworking spaces

Actually, some companies are also allowing their employees to work from coworking spaces not only to help them achieve greater efficiency - but even increased happiness. 

In a Shareable interview, Steve King of consultancy firm Emergent Research explained: 

“The complaints about working from home have always been, number one, loneliness, and number two, productivity. Corporations are realizing that, if they want their remote workers to be productive and happy, they need to let them cowork.”

Conclusion: A coworking space can be a great workplace

For these reasons and more, coworking spaces can be a breath of fresh air, especially for work-from-home professionals having a hard time managing their stress.
