Mailing Address – 8 benefits

Mailing Address membership is growing very quickly at Workplace. This is a part of the business that has surprised us as we didn’t know very much about it at all before we started Workplace. We have since learned that having a Virtual Office has so many amazing benefits and here are 8 to get you started.

  1. Taking a mailing address in a prominent location gives you a broader scope to be able to use your web advertising in that area.   Growing your business through google searches at a very low cost is a considerable advantage.
  2. With a mailing address, you have the opportunity to invest in growing your business in any location without paying for actual floor space. You have a prestigious address for a fraction of  the cost of a square foot of office space in central Manchester
  3. Your mail arrives at your office and is then forwarded on to you, scanned to you, or you can collect it.
  4. Your mailing address is the only one your customers and suppliers will see.  You don’t have to put your home address on all your information which might otherwise be your only option.
  5. At Workplace if you have a mailing address you have the option to use our hot-desking or meeting rooms on an add hock daily bases for a daily fee.  You can meet clients and suppliers again for a very low cost and with complete flexibility.
  6. Statistics tell us that over 2.5 million of us work from home, and this is growing. A proper mailing address makes you seem like you are part of something bigger and not just giving your home address.
  7. At Workplace, unlike many mailing address companies, we invite you to join in events and the goings-on at Workplace which make you feel part of our community.
  8. You not only have a mailing address, but you have a place to meet up with other colleagues at one address, which is a great advantage when growing a remote business.

Melanie Tweddle of Abode Consulting has a mailing address at Workplace and says;

We originally took a mailing address as we needed a central business address for 5 of us who work all over the country under one company name and we wanted the kudos of an M1 address.  However, it has given us much more than this as we now meet up at Workplace as a team once a month and some of us also use the address for client meeting which we can play for on a daily basis.  This is a massive advantage as our clients think this is our office and not just an address and makes us feel that we are part of a much bigger company.  We also get invited to the training and support events which we did not expect.  Workplace also arranged a group Christmas Party which we are able to join in.  All in all, what we thought was going to be a faceless mailing address has turned out to be so much more.

Being More Present in Your Own Life

Being more present is hard. Most of us are not always fully engaged in what’s happening in our daily life. We are constantly in our heads anticipating how something will turn out, or thinking about how things didn’t happen the exact way we wanted.

The result is that we live with high levels of stress, tension, frustration and anxiety every day. Not only does it take away the joy in our everyday life, living in this distracted manner decreases our productivity and performance.

The Mind Hack: Be Present

In his TEDx talk, Matt Killingsworth, a Harvard psychologist who ran a study that gathered 650,000 data points from 15,000 people across 80 countries, discovered this:

“We are substantially happier when we are fully engaged (being present) in what we are doing.”

We are less happy when our mind is distracted regardless of what we are doing. For example, commuting to work is something that most of us do not enjoy. Matt’s research showed that people who focused on their commute instead of letting their mind wander off were substantially happier. This pattern held true for every single activity that was measured.

In addition to higher happiness levels, you enter a state of flow when you are fully engaged and present in an activity. This is a state of being where you are able to tap into your highest abilities, where you are at the optimum level of clarity and focus, and where your performance level is at its peak. Research by the Flow Genome Project found that being in “flow” can boost human productivity, learning, and skill mastery by 490%. It’s the state that elite athletes are in when achieving superhuman feats, and it’s not exclusive to them.

However, we are a distracted breed. Matt’s research shows that we are only present 35 – 50% of the time in our daily life.

So How Do We Be More Present?

This is not about ignoring the past or the future. Our capacity to learn from the past and plan for the future is immensely useful. Just that when you are doing them, do them with your full attention. That’s being present and inflow.
There is no magic formula or a single method that works. Just like learning anything new, start with small steps and keep practising. Here are some simple ways you can start with.

 

1) Start Your Day With Some Quiet Time

After scrambling to get the kids off to school and driving through rush hour traffic, most of us come into work already stressed and on the edge. In this frazzled state of mind, you are more likely to be stressed out by things at work.
Start your day with 5 minutes of quiet time, have a cup of tea, a nice shower, or focus on your breath. You may find that the stresses of the day roll off your back easier.

2) Focus On One Task

How often do you switch from your inbox to a conversation with your colleague? Or from reading an article to checking messages on WhatsApp. Our attention is being demanded by so many things that we have constantly pumped up on cortisol. Our distracted mind feels overwhelmed because it’s constantly shifting from one thing to another.

Try this instead. Switch off all distractions and set a timer for 20 minutes. Pick a task on your to-do list and fully engage in it. Besides lower stress levels, you’ll get more done than when you were multitasking.

3) Practice While You Wait

Embrace the daily pockets of waiting time as opportunities to practice being present. When waiting for the lift or in line for your coffee, instead of looking at your phone, practice being fully present. Observe what is happening in that moment without any judgment or commentary about how the cue is slower today because the lady at the counter doesn’t know what she wants. Just notice what you see, hear, or smell.

4) Be Intentional

Our intentions drive our focus. An effective way to build a habit of presence is to intentionally practice for a month.

There are bundles of blogs, advice and books out there that help to teach us to be present but the real trick is to start practising just one tip and build from there.  See if this focus makes a difference, make it a habit and pick another one… enjoy being 400% more successful!
