Why Delphinium Never Forgets the Milk
Admitting Mistakes, Cabin Fever and Cringe Factor!
Do you ever get cabin fever?I know I’ve been feeling a little burnt out from too much working from home recently. Although January was busy, nearly all my meeting and client work was done remotely. Despite the convenience of not having to commute in the cold and rain, being confined to the same four walls daily can start to feel suffocating.
When I was employed, I’d get fed up with being in the office and loved my one day working from home. The other benefits aside, the change of venue made a huge difference. Now, it’s time to switch things up again. That’s why I’ll be trying out different co-working spaces over the next few weeks and seeing how it feels working away from one or two days a week.
A conversation with a former coaching client reminded me of the potential benefits. They work from home and have the option to work from the office, but often don’t want to make the trip to the city centre. So, I asked, “Why not try a co-working space instead?”
Contrary to popular belief, co-working spaces are for more than just business owners and freelancers. They can also be an excellent alternative for employed professionals, whether you work remotely or not.
Have you ever tried working from a co-working space? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
