The Wellness Benefits of Choosing Coworking Spaces

August 7, 2023

This week we celebrate National Coworking Day 🎉

Coworking spaces are predicted to rise 12% year over year, as our industry continues to grow. 

A coworking space can become more than just a place to work. It can have a positive impact on your overall wellness and bring you a sense of community. Many of our members choose Bamboo coworking spaces to be a part of a supportive and diverse community. 

Below are a few ways coworking spaces can support your wellness and productivity. 

1. Flexibility and Reduced Stress. Coworking offers flexible work hours and environments, leading to reduced stress levels. You can set your own work schedule, and come in when you choose to. There’s both common areas and private spaces to balance out a stressful day. Rooms can be reserved in advance so you always have space when you need it. Our community desk team offers friendly support to help you navigate your busy days.

2. Social Connection and Community. A big part of coworking at Bamboo is the community. We have over 1,000 members and weekly community events to foster connection. It’s not a community unless you’re connected to others who can support you. In many ways, coworking spaces can serve as a social hub. We encourage our members to attend an event or introduce themselves to a coworking neighbor. Take the time to invite other members out for coffee and intentionally build relationships in order to make the most of your coworking membership. These interactions can boost your mood and contribute to a greater sense of well-being and connection.

3. Improved Productivity and Focus. No one likes to feel stressed or distracted. An environment designed to support your work can help increase your productivity and focus. Quite nooks, phone booths, and private rooms can balance out your needs for focus and productivity. Many coworking members also bring in headphones or other tools to help find focus throughout their day.

4. Enhanced Work-Life Balance. Coworking can also provide a nice work-life balance, setting a boundary between your work and home. You can have a dedicated desk or office to go to and set aside specific days of the week to cowork. This can help break up the monotony of working from home or from a traditional office setting. Coworking spaces like Bamboo are designed to inspire you. 

5. Wellness-Focused Amenities. Fresh plants and greenery, natural light, and social interactions all help to create a positive environment. In addition, wellness activities are hosted from time to time at Bamboo to foster your well-being. In the past we've hosted events including pop-up yoga, medication, or healthy lunch in the cafe to fuel your day. Members can access coaching and nearby yoga students at discounted rates via our Bamboo perks program. 

As we celebrate National Coworking Day, we celebrate an industry that fosters wellness, community, and collaboration. We help to unite others and create community hubs. So much good can come from coworking together.
