With the holidays upon us, the pressure starts to mount up. We attend gatherings, prep for big holiday events, and grab presents. It can seem near impossible to run a personal business during these times, especially if you work from home or rely on cafes. With everyone in a flurry, the collective public stress can make it harder than ever to really buckle down. Not to mention maintaining a work-life balance that is conducive to success.
Luckily, that’s where coworking spaces come into the picture.
Filled with individuals enduring the same problems and balancing issues as you, coworking spaces are where you can bond with others about the stressful season. All this while relying on a quiet place to diligently get your work done.
Here are a few reasons why using a coworking space during the holidays will be the best work-life balance move you could ever make.
Most coworking locations are strategically placed in the center of towns and communities so they are convenient to access. Coworking spaces strive to unite communities, which is why they always seek out centralized locations.With this convenience, it is easier to get there and get down to work, as opposed to driving 30-45 minutes to an office location nearby. Alkaloid takes advantage of the Atlanta Beltline to make urban commuting even easier.
Common Holiday Stresses:
Everyone else in the coworking space is experiencing similar frustrations. Sometimes, it’s just nice to be around people who understand what you are going through. Although the space many be busy, the people filling the seats are going to be quietly and diligently completing their work. It will be a much more hospitable environment than the loud phone calls and chit-chat happening in cafes at this time of year.
You can use the coworking members to your future advantage as well! Make time to stick around for events and get to know the people sharing the space with you. Members might end up being new business clients, partners, or even friends in the future. My best friend is an Alkaloid that joined over 3 years ago. Alkaloid members even offer discounts to other members. The holidays are a great time to bond on the excitement and anticipation while getting in some valuable networking.
Coworking spaces are ultimate places for maintaining a healthy work-life balance when the holidays can seem to spiral out of control. Perfectly marrying quiet work time spaces with the ability to have fun and network with other members in the vicinity. Accessing a coworking space at this time of year will provide your brain with some much needed reliable continuity.
