Hive17.jpg

At The Hive, we pride ourselves on promoting work-life balance at our integrated lifestyle destination - VR Bengaluru. It’s not just about work, we believe in our community having well-rounded lives that go beyond the professional element. Wondering how to master this balance with us? Here are some ways you can look forward to: 

  1. Take part in a work mixer or after-work get-together: At fist glance, work mixers may seem a little forced, but they serve an important purpose. Getting to know your coworkers better and building relations with them can help your day-to-day life at work both professionally as well as to take those little breathers. If your office doesn’t host work mixers, propose an after-work get-together at The Whitefield Arms pub. Better yet, invite them to the one of the mixers hosted by The Hive!
     

  2. Explore various global brands: Retail therapy is more than just a phrase. A fulfilling shopping experience works wonders in calming your mind and soul after a long hard week at work. Fortunately, working at The Hive means you have access to tons of eclectic global brands to choose from. Food Hall for your daily needs, H&M, Marks & Spencer, Kama Ayurveda; you name it, VR Bengaluru has it!

  3. Attend masterclasses to spruce up your CV: Masterclasses are a sure-fire way to pick up some much needed skills quickly, especially if your job is quite demanding and gives you little time to attend intensive courses. The Hive has a selection of interesting and informative masterclasses conducted from time to time to help you give your CV and skill set that extra boost. From culinary skills to public speaking, and even tech tools, we host a various range of knowledge sessions that help you grow.
     

  4. Make the most of shared spaces: Lunch breaks and cultural events are the best time to meet people from other businesses across The Hive. Don’t be shy to pull up a chair and sit next to someone you’ve just met or approach a small group of people conversing something interesting. Just smile, say hi & strike up a conversation with them; it’s that simple. Opening up to such relationships help form a welcoming atmosphere that can transform your workspace experience into a wholesome one.
     

  5. Mark out the distinction between your work time and play time: We’ve all heard the proverb ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’. Work and completing your tasks are paramount and nothing should distract you from that. However, letting off steam is not only harmless, but it is also essential to ensure you don’t exhaust yourself mentally and physically. Take a break to play some foosball, participate in an event after work, shop the latest sale, relax by the rooftop pool with a drink. A little play time is conducive to producing good work!

Easy exercises you can do at your desk

Working out is hard. Not only because of the demanding exercises, but when you’re a professional focusing on your career, it can be difficult to take out a couple of hours every day to hit the gym. As a result, we've seen the growth of a lot of work-related physical conditions that can be attributed to a sedentary lifestyle.

The good news is, even if you’re not going to the gym, all it takes is a few steps to ensure that your back, neck and eyes don’t pay the price for your desk-based lifestyle. Here are a few easy desk-based exercises to start your off.

1. The Puppy Dog

Sit up straight. Try to touch your right ear to your right shoulder. Hold for 10 seconds. Do the same with your left ear. 10 repetitions.

2. Up Into The Sky

Interlace your fingers with your palms facing out. While sitting in the same position, try reaching as high as you can.

3. What’s Around

Turn your head to the right, try to look over your shoulder. Hold for a few seconds. Repeat for the other side.

4. Open Up

Sit straight. With your hands behind you, press your palms together. Hold for 10 seconds.

 

5. 20/20/20 Vision

Every 20 minutes, take your eyes off your computer and focus your eyes at anything kept more than 20 ft away for 20 seconds.

 

These should at least protect your neck, back and eyes from severe strain, but some things are unavoidable. Fix your posture while you’re at your desk, take regular breaks to walk around and stretch your legs, and lastly eat and sleep well.

Co-working spaces are the ideal solution to workspace needs

A thorough research into factors that play a role in satisfaction at work had a very
interesting finding. On a 7 point scale, people who worked out of co-working spaces
averaged at 6 points with respect to the levels of motivation & inspiration - a whole point above the average of people who work out of conventional office spaces.

An Introvert’s view into co-working

Co-working is an open community with introverts, extroverts, and dozens of people that swing between them. A lot of conversations begin with a simple smile, a greeting at the coffee machine or even at the pool table.

Here are a few notes we made on how introverts can make the most of shared spaces.
