Being an entrepreneur or working at a rapidly developing startup may be fulfilling, but it can also be exhausting. After a long week of go-go-go hustle, it’s common to feel depleted. When you lack energy, the easiest thing to do is zone out on Facebook or Youtube. We’ve all lost countless evenings that way.
You may have noticed, however, that a night of mindlessly perusing the internet doesn’t leave you feeling very refreshed afterwards. Yet, after a night playing board games with friends or a day at the beach, you’re likely to feel deeply revitalized.
Gray zoning — the process of doing activities that are neither truly productive or reenergizing, is a trap everyone falls into occasionally. Ideally, however, you’ll spend the majority of your time alternating between the states of being deeply productive and deeply relaxed.
The best way to do this is by joining a coworking space with access to an abundance of leisure activities. When Mr. Burnout is knocking at your door, skiing, or singing in a coworking choir are great ways to keep him at bay. Yet, nothing drowns stress like a deep dive into the ocean.
Approaching coral reefs, seeing schools of fish, and swimming with sea turtles is a surreal experience — even if you’re just imagining it! If you want the perfect work/life balance, check out these 4 coworking spaces with access to amazing scuba diving. Let the sweating and swimming begin!
When most people think of Egypt, they only think about its grand pyramids and expansive deserts. Don’t be most people! Coworkinn Dahab, located in the small town of Dahab, is one of the most underrated coworking spaces we’ve ever seen. While Coworkinn Dahab hasn’t received much previous exposure, its time in the spotlight now is well deserved.
This coworking space offers a number of perks. It comes with all the standard benefits you’d expect from a coworking space. Private desks, Skype rooms, and meeting rooms? Check. Free coffee and tea? Check. 24/7 access, and reprography services? Check.
Coworkinn Dahab doesn’t stop there though. Members also enjoy hammocks, a pool, and a beautiful view of both mountains AND the ocean. Wow, Coworkinn Dahab sure sounds cozy. That’s probably what you’re thinking.
Hear us out though, it gets even better. Coworkinn Dahab offers co-living accommodation suitable for nearly any budget. A single room that comes with a coworking membership can be had for just 484€/month. Luxurious resort combos are also available if your budget is more flexible.
Best of all, Coworkinn Dahab will even offer you a free dive on the house if you book one of their co-living packages (or a 50% discount on a scuba diving course if you’re not yet certified). This generous offer makes Coworkinn Dahab perhaps our top recommendation for a coworking space with scuba diving.
A common stereotype about Spain is that it has a laid back culture. This is largely true, especially throughout Spain’s islands. Fuerteventura, the second largest of the Canary Islands, is a great place to reboot when burnout and unbalance begin to dominate your life.
Warm pristine beaches and calm waters make Fuerteventura a premier destination for scuba diving as well. While Fuerteventura is becoming increasingly touristed each year, its natural attractions remain relatively unspoiled.
In addition to its warm weather and beaches, Fuerteventura also hosts an excellent coworking space. Hub Fuerteventura offers a coworking experience unlike any other. To begin with, you’ll be working from a beachfront villa (you could even live there by signing up for one of the co-living packages). The sunset views alone are quite an upgrade from cubicle life.
Beyond that, however, Hub Fuerteventura also provides its members with a long list of amenities. For productivity purposes they’ve got you covered with speedy wifi, a focused work environment, and an excellent community to brainstorm and network with. A fully equipped kitchen, two sea view lounges, and even a garden are also available for your enjoyment during your breaks.
If you’re looking for island living, a vibrant coworking community, and excellent diving opportunities, Hub Fuerteventura is a coworking space to remember.
