Coworking spaces are the new it offices. They are flexible, comfortable, and offer tons of opportunities to grow your professional network.
They also offer a better work setting than a home office or a noisy cafe, which means they get brownie points for productivity too. But if you’re new to coworking, you might easily get carried away by the excitement of the place.
While a good pair of headphones will help you cancel out the hustle and bustle, there are a few super simple steps you can take to let your productivity soar through the sky (or the coworking space).
Whether you’re a coworking newbie or an experienced pro, follow these five simple tips to fine-tune your workflow-
- Look Out for Professional Services
Working out of a coworking space isn’t just about renting a work desk in an aesthetic setting. The best coworking spaces offer amenities that go beyond just pretty places and free coffee. For example, you might be able to access mail-handling services, printers, or virtual offices in-house.
Using these services can help you get work done more efficiently, giving you more time to focus on important tasks.
- Reserve a Private Room
Feeling overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of a coworking space? Why not switch to a private area? Most coworking spaces have private conference rooms or quiet zen corners for more focused work.
Moving to these areas will take away distractions and give you a more peaceful environment to get work done. This is especially helpful if you need to make important phone calls, attend online meetings, or simply work on tasks that require deep concentration. So if you’re feeling overwhelmed, give it a shot!
- Don’t Forget to Take Breaks and Prioritize Self Care
Working nonstop at your desk for hours on end can leave you feeling exhausted and drain your mental energy. That’s where breaks come in.
Taking small breaks to recharge your batteries will help you stay focused and energized. And when you prioritize self-care, you’re not only boosting your productivity, but you’re also taking care of your physical and mental health.
So go ahead and step away from your laptop for a bit. Take a walk, meditate, catch-up with co-workers in the breakout zone, grab a bite from the cafeteria, or do whatever it is that makes you feel good.
- Collaborate With Coworkers
We know what you’re thinking. Isn’t the entire point of this blog to minimize distractions and maximize productivity? Well, yes. But effective collaboration is your secret weapon. Here’s how.
One of the best things about a coworking space is its diversity. You get to meet people with diverse backgrounds and expertise, share ideas with them, and even turn to them when you need help.
So if you’re struggling with a certain task, you’ll most likely find someone in the community who can give you a hand. So something that would’ve ideally taken you hours to figure out can be done in minutes just by collaborating with a coworker. Win-win for productivity and networking!
- Make Your Desk Yours
Adding small touches like plants or decorations that bring you joy, or bringing in your own office supplies can make your workspace feel more like home and motivate you to get things done.
And hey, if you need to make any special requests to customize your desk setup, don’t be shy! At Spring House, we’re happy to accommodate your needs so you can be as productive as possible. All you have to do is ask.
