Especially in a coworking workplace or when you work alone, it can be hard to integrate a well-balanced fitness regime into your daily work-life. Looking after yourself both mentally and physically plays an essential part in your creativity and productivity.

Work can be stressful, especially if you’re not balancing your work life correctly. Physical exercise is a significant factor in relieving stress, therefore affecting your work performance positively.  Many people who have suffered severely from anxiety and depression will tell you that the best medicine was building up a sweat through exercise.

Studies have shown that exercise correlates directly to how well you work. Integrating a good fitness habit into your work life might not be as hard as you first think.

Stress Relief

The less stressed you are, the more focused you can be. It is easy to say that you have no time for fitness as you are tired from the workload during your day. However, being physically fit will make you sleep better, thus being less tired during your work days. If you’re thinking in the long-term, strengthening your body will make your whole life function better.

Stop Wasting Precious Time!

You can always start small, then build up and sustain a good fitness plan regularly. For example, instead of wasting your free time looking at social media, go for a run at lunchtime or before you go back home. Not only does this make you more efficient- but it also saves you from the rush hour crush!

 

Caffeine Can Help but

Of course, other ways can get you through the day, such as coffee or energy drinks, but according to studies, those are much less effective and short term than exercising. Why not take the stairs anytime you can at your office building instead of the lift?

Exercise has also been proven to increase your brain-capacity, enabling you to work more effectively and managing your work schedules more precisely. Who wouldn’t want to be as focused and sharp as possible at work?

Ten reasons coworking is better than coffee shop working

Coworking is better than a coffee shop which with their free wi-fi culture has exploded over the past 2 or 3 years. Using a dedicated coworking space is a better option.  Here we give you ten reasons to prove this.

Coworking is the places to get down to business

  1. Coworking is better as the desks are much more substantial.  You have more space to spread out and see your work.
  2. You can go to the toilet without worrying about leaving your belongings or taking them with you,  Do this in a coffee shop and you probably lose your space.
  3. The environment is full of people working. There is not the annoying noise distraction of shoppers, children or noisy groups of lunchers.  This means that coworking is better for avoiding distractions.
  4. The Wi-Fi is excellent and robust and still included.  Coworking is better and ensuring the network is secure.
  5. If you sit for 8 hours in a coffee shop, you would consume on average three drinks,  More is you are buying for a guest you are meeting. Just buying drinks could cost you upwards of £12 per day. In a coworking space you get all your tea and coffee (and biscuits!) included in the price, even for your potential customer or interviewee.
  6. Kudos – how good does it look to meet your future top customer or new employee in a coffee shop? Compare this with meeting them at your business address which has a host waiting for them and a great looking lounge to meet in.
  7. Coworking is better if you want to use this space as your business address.  You can’t have your mail delivered to your local coffee shop!
  8. If you go out to meetings when using a coffee shop, you have to take everything with you.  At Workplace, you can put your computer and your bags in a locker and take what you need.  Coworking is better for security.
  9. Can you bike to your coffee shop, securely store it and have a shower before work?  You can at Workplace.
  10. Networking – it is rare to strike up a conversation in a coffee shop with a stranger.  In a coworking space, this can be with someone who can help you and your business.  Maybe you can help them,  this happens all the time in coworking space.

Coworking is better at Workplace even if it is just a day pass.
