Over the past year and a half, almost everyone has been forced to create new routines in their personal and professional lives. We are all adapting to the ever-changing realities of the world, but that doesn't need to stop us from getting things done. As you continue to build your career, network, and skillset during these uncertain times, a Virtual Office plan could be a great option for you. Here are a few ways a Virtual Office can provide you with a low-risk, high-reward solution for staying productive.
Our lives are filled with appointments, to-do lists, errands, and calls; there's one crucial thing you need to accomplish all of these tasks... yourself! Taking care of your mind and body shouldn't feel like it's pulling you away from taking care of business, in fact, these are very closely tied to one another.
At AdvantEdge Workspaces, we don’t believe in ‘one size fits all.’ Each organization has unique challenges, strengths and processes. It’s our job to help find a workspace and administrative support solution to meet the needs of each community member! When we say ‘Your office, your way’, we truly mean it! A major part of daily business is conducted over the phone, so our team goes above and beyond to offer exceptional live-reception service. We will truly build our service around you; allowing you to create your own personalized phone greeting and forwarding plan that will best suit your needs.
Over the past year, we've seen a major increase in the number of professionals working from home worldwide. This transition has presented its challenges, but also shown us new ways we can be productive in our work and collaborate effectively with others.

There are some challenges to managing a remote team, but with communication and structure your team can be more productive than ever!
We all know to wear sunglasses outside to protect our eyes from UV rays, but most office workers nationwide fail to recognize the damage they are doing to their eyes inside the office. Inadequate care of your sight in the office can lead to serious eye problems such as dry eye, eye twitching, redness, and migraines. Reduce your eye risk at the workplace now to safeguard your vision later in life.
Last Wednesday was #NationalDogDay, and we celebrated everything that we love about our furry friends (as if we need an excuse)! While everyone adores their canine companions, did you know that having a dog may be able to improve your workday? A study from USC shows that having a four-legged roommate can decrease stress and increase happiness and productivity. Although many people have already seen working from home as the perfect time to get a pet, there are still opportunities to adopt or foster.

In this edition of #InsideAdvantEdge, we are covering tips for practicing self-care during these times.
