We’ve all been there. I don’t know the exact reason, but we, as humans, love new beginnings. We love the idea of starting fresh from a certain moment. That’s why Mondays, new weeks in general, new months, and especially New Years often come with resolutions.
How many times have you heard somebody (or even yourself) saying: “Starting from Monday, I will…”, “Next week is going to be different”, “This year/Next year I will…”. It’s a theme as old as time. We love the idea of a new beginning.
So, while we are still riding the New Year’s wave, it’s time for a Work&Share’s New Year’s Resolutions. What do I mean? Well, I’m sure at least some of you reading this have already made a New Year’s Resolutions List with all the things you want to achieve in 2024. Keep on reading to find out how Work&Share can help with many of the most common ones.
This year I will… get in shape
Classic. Have you ever been in a gym between the 1st and 15th of January? It’s a mess. The gym is full of new people, and chances are you won’t see 95% of them by the start of February. It’s even scientifically proven that the so-called “New Year Effect” in fitness terms lasts for about 14 days. That means that someone makes a promise to get in shape in the new year but the motivation lasts for only two weeks in most cases. Then the same person goes back to their regular self. And how can you tackle this “New Year Effect” and make it an all-year-round thing? Well, at Work&Share, we already have an equipped gym space, making it the easiest way for you to keep that promise. It’s quiet, not crowded, so you get your intimacy. You won’t feel pressured by the looks of the people around you, as, in most cases, you will probably be on your own or even better – with colleagues/friends. It might not be a gym exactly, but it all starts with little steps towards the discipline needed to make it a habit and therefore keep that promise. So, every day you are at work, you can spend 20-30 minutes in the Work&Share gym zone. In that amount of time, you can achieve wonders if you are consistent, believe me. It’s all about creating a habit that will last even after the first two motivation-filled weeks. Go on. We are with you all along!
This year I will… focus on work
Great. We know you can achieve great things if you put your mind to it. At Work&Share, we’ve prepared the tools you need for this. Our office is designed not only to serve as a workplace but also as an inspiration. We have rooms for those who love to focus alone and in silence. We also have spaces where you can be around people if that works better for your productivity. You know what to do, and we know what you need to achieve it so that 2024 can be your most productive and successful year.
This year I will… eat better
I guess this is kind of connected to the first point, but anyways. You’ve decided to embark on a journey of better food habits. That’s great and often includes you becoming your own chef. If that’s the case, then it’s time to put on the apron and be the master chef at home. At Work&Share, we have two beautiful and peaceful kitchens where you can really enjoy your meal, so you don’t have to go outside and make choices that are not the best for your food regime. It might not be a masterpiece from the start, but eventually it will be (the meal, not the kitchens. They are already a masterpiece in their own way).
This year I will… be more social
What better place for that than Work&Share? Seriously… We’ve gathered under our roof people from different industries, with different backgrounds, and sometimes even from different countries. So every 5-minute break in the kitchen at the Work&Share or in the garden gives you the opportunity to meet new and exciting people. Sure, you won’t click with everybody straight away, but there is a big chance that you will make new friends at Work&Share if you just try to talk to the people in and around the building.
This year I will… spend more time outside
Okay, we’ve got you covered. In our garden, we’ve prepared for you a special place where you can not only chat with your colleagues, enjoy your coffee but also use it as a workplace if you want to spend some time outside. We even have an outside table for your lunches in the fresh air on sunny days.
This year I will… learn something new
Coding, architecture, marketing, copywriting – you name it. At Work&Share, there are many different companies and professionals who will be happy to share a secret or two. That might be the first step for you towards a new career.
This year I will… share more
This is the culture we’ve been trying to implement for years now. The idea that sharing is caring, and “more we” is always the better option. No matter if it’s up to talking more about yourself or if it’s sharing in the literal meaning of the word – Work&Share is the place for that.
In conclusion, I would say that having a New Year’s resolutions list is cool. You just have to be persistent. And from my own experience, I would say that it’s a lot more likely to keep your promises when you have the environment to do so. And this is just another example of how Work&Share can be your partner on the path to achieving your goals.
