Working from home has become the norm for many professionals in recent years, especially during the time of COVID, but it's not without its downsides. The distractions of home life, The isolation of working alone, and the lack of a dedicated workspace can all make it difficult to be productive and motivated. This is where coworking comes in.
When you work from home, there are a million and one things that can distract you from getting your work done. There's the never-ending pile of dishes, the cat that insists on sitting on your keyboard, and the siren call of your bed. Those distractions disappear when you come into the office. No more dishes, no more cats, and definitely no more beds.
Then there’s the isolation. Working from home, it can sometimes feel like you're all alone in the world. With coworking, you're surrounded by like-minded individuals who are also trying to get work done. And let's be real, it's always more fun to work with friends. And you can finally have someone to share office gossip with besides your fish or your Ficus plant.
Free amenities are also a pro to coworking. At home, you're stuck with whatever's in your fridge or pantry. But when you cowork, you have access to free coffee, tea, and even beer. That's right, beer. And don't even get me started on the free printing. It's like Christmas morning, but for your office supplies.
Perhaps the best part about coworking versus working at home is the variety of personalities you have the potential to interact with. You'll never know who you'll meet, and that's half the fun. You could be sitting next to a programmer, a graphic designer, or even a fortune teller (it has happened).
Working from home can be great, but it can also turn you into a hermit crab. Coworking is like a breath of fresh air, with its professional environment, free coffee, beer, and tea, and the camaraderie of like-minded individuals. If that sounds like it’s for you, grab your laptop and schedule a tour and free day of coworking today at Penn’s Treaty Coworking.
