One of the constant complaints that we have heard from our clients because of the past 9 months of work from home culture is that when one is working from home, the boundaries between professional and personal lives get blurred. Clients have been talking about overwork, even to the point of burnout given the lack of any fixed “in” or “out” timings. In these circumstances, it becomes vital to maintain a healthy work-life balance. If not, we face the dangers of diminishing productivity and work satisfaction, physical and mental health issues and overall poor quality of life.
This is the reason for the many flexibility features that we offer at Cove coworking. Some of these features are:
Eliminating distractions and setting boundaries – When you are working from a shared office, there are no roommates, pets or even family around to distract you. Even if there are people around you, they are like-minded professionals, who will respect your boundaries and let you work in peace. If you do need even more privacy, you can opt for a dedicated office. This allows you to singularly focus on your work and achieve top productivity.
Flexible timings – Since you can rent a facility in a coworking space as per your convenience, you are no longer limited by the availability of a peaceful work environment at home. No longer waiting for kids to sleep or the construction work next door to stop. You can decide what time works best for you, and work accordingly. With Cove offering 24×7 access to its facilities, you can work at any time of the day or night, literally. Additionally, you can choose to separate your professional timings from your personal timings. A change of venue helps tremendously in achieving this.
Alone, yet not alone – Unlike working at home (especially if you are living alone – like many of our clients and their employees do!), you’re not entirely cut off from humanity. Coworking spaces typically arrange for group activities that allow you to unwind and enjoy some downtime. Cove goes one step further and makes large areas with greenery available for you to simply take a long walk whenever your mind needs some relaxation. These satisfy your need for human contact while not infringing on your time. Like you already know, a relaxed mind is better equipped for success.
Coworking spaces let you combine the best of professional and personal aspects of your life, thereby ensuring a positive balance between both. When you are satisfied in one aspect, it automatically boosts your satisfaction from the other. Additionally, they also resolve many of the issues which arise from the “constant WFH” culture. In conclusion, this leads to a balanced, happy life. Isn’t that what we all need at the end of the day? If your answer is in the positive, Cove is where you need to be.
