Unlike the old times when there were not many vehicles, and there were fewer traffic jams and shorter routes, these days, traffic jams are a regular sight. The most common issue that the working professionals face these days is the commute from home to office.
Especially in the metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore or Jaipur people spend a minimum of 1.5 hours of their day while travelling.
Wouldn’t it be great to live near your workplace? You can always come home in case of any emergency, there would be no more traffic jams, and neither would be the pollution that you come across while travelling from home to office each day and so on. All this results in tiredness and also affects your productivity in the office as well as home.
And that’s why Mahima Group came up with an ingenious idea of bringing your work close to your home by introducing the walk-to-work culture. Few of the developed cities of India have already switched to the same in the last few years. Jaipur, on the other hand, is not much aware of the concept.
Mahima group, with its newly launched project, Mahima’s Shubh Nilay Villas at Ajmer Road has bought this concept to light and is introducing the walk-to-work idea in the project. Additionally, the advantages of living near your workplace are many, so let’s discuss about all of them in detail here.
Six considerable benefits of having office nearby
Shifting near your workplace will be the best thing that you will do to improve your lifestyle. When you work close to your home, you get a comfortable living that also enhances your living quality.
Here are a few more reasons why you should buy a house near your workplace.
01. Saves a Lot of Time:
Honestly, nobody likes to spend time between traffic jams and travelling in peak hours.
Thus, working close to your home allows you to avoid all the unnecessary hours spent while travelling. The extra time that you will save can be given to the family and the other recreational activities like playing, swimming, gym etc.
So now if you are living near your workplace, you can save a huge amount of time. After all, it’s always a good idea to give more to life than to work.
02. Saves Your Money:
A lot of people complain about petrol and diesel prices hike. Well, having your office at a walking distance can help you save around 5-7K per month and around a lakh per year! Walking to your workplace can help you in saving heaps of money that you spend on the medium of commuting, irrespective of whether you have a personal vehicle or use public transport.
Moreover, staying close to the office can significantly reduce the wear and tear of the vehicle, which means lower maintenance expense.
03. Numerous Health Benefits:
Churning out time in your busy schedule can be challenging! Thus, ditching the vehicle and walking to your work has more benefits than you could have imagined. Walking or cycling to the office can give you the daily dose of workout and also helps in boosting your immune system.
10-15 minutes of daily exercise such as walking is much better than a completely sedentary lifestyle, and when you are living near your workplace, this becomes relatively easy.
04. Environment Friendly Option:
These days everyone prefers having their vehicle and chooses a private commute over public transport. This not only adds to the environmental degradation but also makes the air polluted and harmful to breathe.
But working near your home can make you an environmental lover and lessen the amount of four or two-wheelers which, in turn, reduces the pollution.
05. Maintains Work-life Balance:
one of the most significant benefits of working close to home is having an excellent work-life balance that otherwise goes for a toss.
You won’t have to rush or wake up as early to get to the office on time. Your workplace will be just a walk or cycle ride away. Being close to home gives you the flexibility to reach home quickly in case of an emergency or break for lunch.
06. No Worries About Curfews:
In a country like India, curfews are not uncommon. Amidst any unpleasant situations, the state imposes curfew, and hence you are homebound.
Well, if you have your office nearby, you can always walk in case of any unavoidable or essential work—no need to worry about the cops or committing a felony.
Hence, Mahima Group understands the need to have homes near to the office and has built the commercial spaces within the project to allow the residents to walk to work efficiently.
It also has immense health benefits and saves time which can help you escape the daily hassle. You can use this time to spend with your family or indulge in hobbies and live a stress-free life.
