Working from home can be very counterproductive, that’s why many workers prefer to work in a coliving in Gran Canaria.
Keeping productivity and focused when working at home could be challenging. Houses are full of distractions, leading to low productivity in the long run.
Besides this, some workers feel lonely and disconnected, with consequences on their mental health.
Work has changed and so have the working spaces.
In the last decades, work has changed very fast, the traditional office culture is becoming obsolete, we want leisure and work together, concepts like collaborative work, community, fun at work, flexibility, or coworking as a result of this new work evolution are here to stay and new generations want all of this in their companies or as a freelancer.
Freedom to live and work from any place with wifi is another important aspect, don´t talk to them about the 9 to 5 schedule in an office, this freedom breaks many traditional corporate standards, and companies have to reinvent the way they manage their teams to keep talent.

New opportunities will arise in these events, but we need to participate, get involved, and enjoy the moment.
Collaborative learning and share knowledge-
Approaching a coliving with an open mind will help you to get the most out of it. Get rid of an “all for me” strategy, give first, teach what you know and you will feel how people open up and give you love and other knowledge back, but even if they don’t give you anything, don’t feel bad about it, just enjoy the act of collaborate and help others, making you feel fulfilled in the long run.
Sometimes we learn more when we teach something to others, and that mindset will bring you positiveness…

Sense of belonging and community
Loneliness is a serious social threat with strong consequences for our mental health, we need to take it seriously and many International organizations and scientists are warning about it.
The sense of community and belonging is what makes the coliving industry an important tool for many social problems in the near future.
Sharing, connecting, listening, and being listened to, besides emotional support, are only a few of the advantages of a coliving, and this will help colivers to find a sense of purpose and improved well-being.
Going out and discovering the island with other community members will help to balance work and personal life.
Well Being increasing
It is impossible to keep productivity at a high level without taking care of yourself, consequences of overwork are very well known.
In Las Palmas everything will push you to work wisely and to enjoy some time in nature, Las Canteras beach is a place to consider when disconnecting from work in the afternoon, to play sports, surf, or go out to drink something with other community members.
Winter is mild and good weather is an advantage to going out and enjoying nature. The city is full of gyms and different companies that deliver real food, never was so easy to have a healthy life.
We consider all of these elements part of our proposition, we truly believe in building a space where we take care of each other, collaborate, and learn from one another.
Our upper floor and terrace are open, with plenty of natural light, so socializing, working, sharing a coffee, and sunbathing is easy.
We offer a small space, we believe in small, we do everything small, and we think we have to learn to do things in a smaller way because most of the time big changes start small…
