Many of us have been working from home on our own for a long, looooong time now. But being on our lonesome for this amount of time can feel isolating. We think it’s time to get out of the spare room or the impromptu kitchen office set-up, leave the house and join civilisation again - even if it’s just for a day or two a week. Regaining some of that work life balance can make a big difference to your health and happiness.
So let’s remind ourselves of some of the benefits of getting back into a coworking space with, you know, actual human beings!
1. We are all people people.
You just can’t beat that sense of community and camaraderie that being around other peeps gives you. It can be reassuring, comforting and very inspirational. Even if you don’t know the other people, you can’t help but get swept along in the energy. At the end of the day, people need people. And coming together and sharing a joint experience does wonders for your mental health. It does so much to combat isolation and the feeling of being detached that can happen when you’ve been working on your own.
2. Everyone’s in it together.
All the people you’ll meet at a coworking space like DeskLodge are going through the same things you are. They’re all in the same boat. You never know who you might meet at the coffee machine; you might find some incredible opportunities come your way just by having a quick cuppa with Kate in the kitchen. The next big client, perhaps. Or even a new hire. Remember, sometimes the best things happen when you least expect them to.
3. We’ve got all the essentials covered.
When you work at a flexible office space like DeskLodge, you don’t need to stress about the little stuff. Will the WiFi be fast enough for us? Will the offices and shared spaces be cleaned regularly? Will there be quiet places if I need one? With us, all the essentials are covered so you can focus on being 100% awesome 100% of the time. Oh, and let’s answer the most important question for you… Yes, there is an endless supply of tea and coffee. All day. Every day. Phew.
4. A work zone for every mood.
Sometimes you’ll need a quiet corner to finish off that tricky business plan. Other times you won’t mind a bit of hustle and bustle to get the creative juices flowing. At DeskLodge, we have a working environment to suit every mood and every purpose. They’re themed too, to trigger a little bit more creativity and inspiration. You could soon find yourself blitzing that pitch deck in The Bunker, having a meeting that’s out of this world in NASA or thrashing out that report by hiding away in the Hobbit Hole.
5. Help and high-fives!
Laptop won’t connect to the meeting room monitor? Can’t access the WiFi? Need a new whiteboard marker pen? There are always little hiccups in your working day. Here at DeskLodge, our super friendly and helpful team are close by to assist and support. You won’t find more helpful humans!
