Transitional phases in our work life range from the expected to something random. You may be in between jobs, trying to turn a passion project full-time, or experiencing a layoff. With the recent government shutdown leaving many workers furloughed, there was an influx of people experiencing how tough it can be to navigate your days without heading to the office from 9-5.
Shared workspaces are a great place to make the most of your transitional time. Day-long office space rentals and coworking areas provide a quiet and professional spot to be productive. Bring your laptop, help yourself to a cup of coffee or tea, and settle in for the day (or more). If you need to meet with your team during a shutdown or gap in office space, use a conference or meeting room for a few hours. Being in an environment with all the same amenities as your usual space can help maintain a sense of normalcy.
Transitions or the possibility of being furloughed can be scary. Without the absence of a traditional work day, it can be hard to find a new daily routine. These times are perfect for updating your LinkedIn or website, working on your personal branding, learning a new skill, or taking a side-project to the next level. While working at home is great at first, there comes a point where it is time to get out of the sweatpants. A shared workspace gives you the flexibility, tools, and support that you need to be productive.
