4 Mental Health Benefits of Working at OE Mill Valley

The concept of having a space where freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and other remote workers can come together to work independently but collaboratively started in 1995. Now, coworking spaces are a booming trend and an increasingly popular flexible workspace option for professionals! Besides providing flexible work hours and an environment that encourages creativity, shared office spaces come with many additional mental health benefits. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 5% of adults worldwide suffer from depression. Other mental health issues also play a role in overall well-being and productivity. 

Fortunately, coworking spaces can help foster better mental health for those who choose to work in one. Here are four mental health benefits of working in flexible spaces: 

Sense of Community and Belonging 

Shared workspaces provide a sense of belonging, especially for those working remotely or freelancing independently. The flexible workplace brings together people with different backgrounds and skills, creating an atmosphere of collaboration and support. 

You get to connect with like-minded professionals, benefit from the knowledge and experience of others, and lift each other up! Human interactions help people with mental health issues by reducing social isolation and fostering meaningful connections with those around them. 

Our shared office space offers a wide array of office settings and workspaces to accommodate individuals, small teams, and larger corporate satellite offices. While there are many features for privacy, including frosted glass, you can still be part of a like-minded community of professionals.

Simplifies Flexibility, Freedom, and Work-Life Balance 

Coworking spaces give professionals the flexibility and autonomy to work anywhere and anytime. Having flexible workspaces allows you to choose your own hours, make your area comfortable, and work on meaningful projects. You reduce the pressure of tight schedules and rigid policies, which can lead to increased stress levels, which also leads to mental health problems. 

At Office Evolution Mill Valley, you have 24/7 access! With this flexibility and freedom, you can also create a better work-life balance. You have the freedom to structure your day in a way that works best for you, and with flexible hours, you can be more adaptable to your commitments. Our business center workspaces provide an environment where your responsibilities and leisure activities matter. When you step into one, you can gain a deeper appreciation for the importance of balance in your life. 

Our Mill Valley location is a short drive from Sausalito and Strawberry and just 10 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge. There are tons of amazing restaurants close by, and the office is less than 10 minutes from the Tennessee Valley Trail.

Reduces Stress and Boosts Mood 

Stress is expected because of deadlines and demanding expectations. There’s the feeling of always chasing the clock and being pressured to deliver excellence. When you often feel stressed, your autonomic nervous system takes control, which affects your physical and mental health. 

Perhaps the most apparent benefit of flexible workspaces is reducing stress levels. A flexible workspace has a more relaxed atmosphere than a traditional office. When you’re surrounded by people also trying to achieve their goals and have control over your time, you reduce your stress levels and actually feel better about working! 

Improves Focus and Productivity 

Ultimately, working in a shared office space improves focus and productivity. The above benefits provide the conditions for professionals to focus on their work rather than worrying about taking care of non-work-related tasks. This freedom lets you focus on your goals and objectives, be more creative, and deliver outstanding results. 

In addition to the flexibility of your workspace, our office building is located right on the water, and many of our offices, coworking spaces, and meeting rooms host breathtaking views of the bay! Grab a quick break with our outdoor seating allows you to feel human and boost your esteem naturally. You’re still able to be productive and motivated, not just a cog in a machine. And when you acknowledge and feel your achievements, you boost your self-confidence and overall mental well-being.
