Why it’s time to abandon your Austin commute

Let’s face it – commuting to the office might be the most annoying time-waster on the planet. The traffic, the parking, all that fuel – not to mention the valuable time you spend in the car when you could actually be doing something constructive!

Flexible office space eliminates all of these concerns, giving you an option to work someplace that is close, convenient, affordable, and offers all the high-tech bells and whistles that you would expect in a modern corporate office suite.

While Georgetown and Round Rock are pretty close and convenient to Austin, the commute is getting busier every day, meaning it still cuts into your work day and will end up costing you more in the long run. Heritage Office Suites have locations in both Georgetown and Round Rock, meaning that you simply don’t have to travel all the way to Austin to get the benefits of a fully-equipped office.

Here are just some of the top benefits you would enjoy by choosing Heritage Office Suites:

1.    Better work-life balance

You will be closer to home, yet you will still be completely connected to head office with business-grade internet and all the latest conferencing technology. You can effectively trade-in your commute for more fun activities like spending time with your family and friends. Heck, you might even be able to walk or bike to work!

2.    All the amenities – without the price tag

Working remotely doesn’t mean you have to compromise on technology. Heritage Office Suites features all the latest office and connectivity tech you can think of – and more besides. Plus, you will have the benefit of professional reception, an in-house café and lounge, several flexible work areas, and meeting rooms whenever you need them.

3.    Save the planet

Keeping more cars off the freeways is one of the best ways to ensure we’ll have clean air to breathe in the years to come. Taking your vehicle off the daily commute will help contribute to that cause, plus, it will lighten the already ridiculous traffic on the roads in and out of the city.

4.    Score one for your mental – and physical – health

Studies show that commuting takes a toll on both our physical and mental health. Long commutes have been linked to heart problems, high blood pressure, and obesity, meaning that if you insist on holding on to that drive, you may be at greater risk for these issues. Lengthy commutes have also been associated with undue stress, depression, fatigue, and calling in sick.

5.    Longer commute = less fun!

There are only so many hours in a day. If you’re spending too much time in your car, you just won’t have time for some of the more fun activities in life – like friends, social events, and family time. By the time you get home, you probably won’t have the energy to devote to those things.

Live a little! Work remotely!
