Ever since we started working out of a coworking space, we noticed an improvement in our overall health and wellbeing. So we want to share a few tips and observations with you.
1. Walk or bike to work
The whole idea is to work at a coworking space in your neighborhood. Coworking spaces are supposed to be convenient, so you want to go to one close by. That means you have no excuse not to bike or walk to work. (Check out the #BikeToWork2018 initiative by The Chain Effect).
2. Leave your computer at work
You’re no longer working from home or from a coffee shop, so that means you can leave your computer at the coworking space. This helps with your work/life balance.
3. Bring your own lunch to work
Coworking spaces allow you to put your lunch in the fridge or cupboard. Not eating out helps you save money and it’s a healthier option. Or set up a meal plan through ChefXChange.
4. Fuel your social life / community
A coworking space allows you to work on your own projects while being surrounded by a community of like-minded people. Working from home can be very lonely, so we encourage everyone to find a coworking space to join. Be a part of a community that inspires and leaves room for collaboration.
5. Minimize Stress
We take care of the headaches that go into setting up your own internet, electricity, utilities, etc. This allows you to focus on what's really important - your work.
6. Increase productivity
Coworking spaces are designed for increased productivity. A coworking space is the perfect in between offering the comfort and flexibility of working from home or a coffee shop, but also offering the structure of a traditional office. The Olive Grove’s open layout allows in a lot of natural light, gives you room to breathe, and fuels creativity.
7. Commit to going to the gym
Because you’re now more productive at work, you have time to go to the gym. Make the commitment and you’ll see the results. Plus, you’ll feel happier. (Exercising releases dopamine, happy chemicals, into your brain). If you're a member at The Olive Grove, we recommend the gym down the street, Fitness Zone Hamra.
Join a coworking space and incorporate these points into your life, and we guarantee you'll feel healthier all around.
