Coworking Gracia: working in a coworking or working from home?
What are the advantages of working in a coworking and not at home? At Coworking Gracia we know that you have been asking yourself this question for some time. For this reason, and because we have analyzed the two realities in depth, we are going to explain the benefits and drawbacks of the two options so that, with all the information adapted to your own personal situation, you can generate your own opinion.
Benefits of working from home
Time flexibility and savings are undoubtedly the greatest virtues of having your office in your home. This way you can design your work schedule choosing the time slots in which your productivity increases. Are you a night person and you perform better in the early morning? Doing it from home is definitely your option.
In addition, in this case there are no commuting expenses and it won’t take you long at all to get to the office. If we also deduct other monthly expenses involved in a shared workspace or eating out, the numbers almost come out on their own.
Disadvantages of working from home
Sedentariness, isolation and overwork are the downside. If you are not a very physically active person, spending so many hours at home can affect you a lot. On the other hand, socialization will also be reduced and this can affect you not only psychologically, but also in terms of the current affairs of your sector. As for your pocket, think that the electricity and Internet bills may be more expensive than you think, so we recommend you to do the math before opting to stay at home.
If you are one of those people who hardly separate from the computer screen once you have sat down, this work “practice” will increase a lot because work schedules tend to extend much longer than recommended. A problem not only for you and your physical and mental health, but also for your productivity and for the healthy relationship with the people who live with you.
To this we must add other “temptations” to be at home such as putting on a washing machine, going shopping, walking continuously to the refrigerator or watching TV for a while.
Advantages of coworking
In Coworking Gracia we are clear: a shared workspace is the best bet not only in terms of business productivity issues, but in something that we give here as much or more value: your physical and mental health.
And the fact is that performing your work in a shared space in Barcelona will provide you with more stable schedules and work routines that will benefit your daily work, preventing you from spending weekends and unsociable hours in front of the computer, increasing your productivity and, above all, the quality of your life. On the other hand, say goodbye to the distractions that are so common at home: you go to the workplace, you work. It’s as simple as that.
As far as strictly professional matters are concerned, they are all excellences. You will be in daily contact with professionals from your sector but also from others, so your productivity will increase, you will have more motivation, opinions, perspectives? And you offer a much more competent image to your clients!
In terms of economy, a coworking is much more profitable than an office, especially if we take into account the hiring of services and monthly supplies (cleaning, electricity, water, heating, Internet, etc.).
As you can see, the pros of a coworking seem to outweigh those of working at home so, if you want to know our facilities, environment and services, as well as how we will respond to your needs, do not hesitate and contact Coworking Gracia. Surely we will clear up any doubts you may have, joining this coworking space in Barcelona.
