Brain breaks will be one of the most essential coworking perks of 2023. Brain breaks are short time intervals during the workday when employees can take a break from work and focus on recharging their minds. It is essential for employee productivity and well-being, as they help to reduce stress and prevent burnout. Coworking spaces should prioritize providing comfortable and inviting spaces where employees can take breaks and refresh themselves. Employees can stay energized and productive over the long term with the proper brain breaks.
Libraries - Reading can help us focus better and give our brains a much-needed respite from distracting visual noise. Creating a library is one strategy to promote reading among coworking participants. If you're short on funds, consider finding used bookcases and placing them in your breakout areas.
Deep breathing and yoga - Deep breathing can boost energy, reduce stress, and promote good posture in seconds. If you operate a coworking space, think about setting up an open-access bank of resources for deep breathing that members can use as needed. The practice of yoga has long been popular among coworkers, and it can sometimes be led in person.
Local walks - It is well known that prolonged inactivity when working at a desk can cause physical and emotional exhaustion. By directing members to the closest green spaces, you can encourage them to incorporate activity into their daily schedule. Why not make a printed or digital map highlighting all the ways to green spaces?
Imaginative prompts - Activities that require workers to utilize their intellect for something else at work may also give the brain a different kind of break. Creative prompts may offer worker relief from repetitive or, opposite, highly conceptual activities. Consider starting a collective writing project that participants can work on while taking mental breaks. Write the first sentence of a story in a notebook and place it in a breakout area so that others can add to it as they are motivated.
Coloring books - The fact that adult coloring books are non-competitive is one of the best things, especially in the workplace. Take your time; people can work as swiftly or slowly as they like and complete as much as they like. Moreover aware, coloring encourages the individual to pay attention to the moment.

Coworking spaces are an excellent way for people to not only have a place to work but to also build relationships, gain insight, and strengthen their business. Coworking spaces provide a unique atmosphere where people can collaborate on projects, discuss ideas, and make connections. People thrive in coworking spaces for many reasons. Let's find out the reasons that have led to coworking spaces becoming the modern working class's top choice of destination.
Sense of Community - Working in a coworking environment might help the employees feel proud to be a part of a vibrant and thriving community. They can communicate with those who share their viewpoints and build solid interpersonal and professional bonds. The sense of community fostered by coworking encourages employees to come to work every day, without fail, and to put their all into getting more outstanding results. Additionally, it has been observed that living in a community encourages employees to be more organized and disciplined, which increases their effectiveness and productivity.
Unique and Innovative Workspaces - Organizations and individuals can now choose their workspaces based on preference and style because of the emergence of coworking offices. Numerous coworking space providers offer adaptable office spaces so that users can design a setting that suits their particular working style and increase productivity. Coworking spaces are viewed as a place for everyone because they provide various workspace options that may accommodate any individual or organization.
Work Flexibility - Organizations and individuals can select flexible working hours and the ideal workspaces at a coworking space. An introvert who prefers to work solo but needs the workplace environment can be confidently productive without interacting with others. Coworking is the ideal place for an extrovert who utilizes socializing as a justification to generate ideas and be more creative. Everyone may increase their productivity and success by using coworking spaces.
A coworking space is an open environment because it encourages communication and collaboration among its members. It creates an atmosphere of inclusivity, where everyone is welcome and invited to participate. The space provides access to resources, tools, and events that promote networking, learning, and creative thinking. It also fosters an environment that allows people to work independently and together on various projects. These factors make a coworking space an open, productive, and inspiring workplace.
According to the Review of Managerial Science, the extent its occupants are willing to participate in core coworking values determines a coworking space’s openness.
Rejecting the coworking core values defeats the point of using a coworking space and may even lessen employee performance.
In essence, a coworking space is only as open as its members; the open, free exchange of ideas necessitates a coworking environment full of unrestricted people who possess a wealth of personal creativity.
A highly open-minded, enthusiastic, and creative group with a familiar, possibly open-ended goal must occupy an "open" coworking space.
Open workspaces are coworking environments where communication, networking for business or information, creative collaboration, mutual emotional support, and general friendliness are norms.
When evaluating a coworking space and its extent of openness, the focus must be on the people using it, not the spaces themselves. In the end, people, not spaces, are open.
