Tell us about your experience with BreathingRoom — what did you use it for, and how did you find it useful compared to your other options?
I became aware of Breathing Room through my network of professional friends. Soon after, when I needed a place for a demo session with an Industry expert, I booked the premium space at FC Road.
The music was a little loud but they were happy to turn the volume down on request. I had a peaceful conversation and demonstration, accompanied with some good snack options. The best part was the privacy of the small cabin room with no noise & distractions unlike other cafes. The booking process was smooth and the staff very helpful. Not to forget, the ambiance was refreshing. I loved the place overall!
If you have any non-traditional work environment tips — either for remote working or work-from-home — we would love to share that with our readers.
I have been working from home for quite a while now, I believe one thing you definitely miss out on is that small tea break with your colleagues; that can be really de-stressing on a heavy day. I ensure that I connect with my team more often and not stay strictly business 🙂
