Sharing the working space has had untold benefits. Having other small business owners, and other employees from many different types of businesses has kept Robin, Tammie and I connected. Being in a space with other lawyers, many of whom are solo or small firm practitioners has also helped. Melissa, and her prior colleagues have reminded us of what a great receptionist is capable of, making a really great first impression.
This June, we’re celebrating Workplace Well-being Month to introduce more healthy choices and activities into your workday! Whether you work from home or work in an office, here are some ideas to help you focus on your well-being!
Since nicer weather is here, we thought what better way to celebrate than go out and visit the area’s best parks! There are many parks and trails in St. Louis and St. Charles that are free to the public and offer various activities for a fun day in the sun. We put together a list of the most popular parks in the area. Check it out!

We are excited to introduce Connie from Conmar. She has been a long term tenant of Creve Coeur Workspace and are delighted to feature her. Check out her interview below:
In a shared workspace environment, taking care of the space you’re in can make everyone’s work life easier. No one wants to walk into the shared kitchen area to see the sink full of dishes! Take note of these super simple tips to make everyone’s time in the space run more efficiently.
Schedule conference and meeting room time with wiggle room.
Oftentimes conference and meeting rooms are booked back to back. If your meeting runs over your scheduled time, you’re causing the next meeting to begin later than expected. Check with the receptionist to see if anyone is booked after you and add more time if you need it. We will do our best to accommodate you and your guests in a different meeting room if needed.
Be mindful of your noise level.
It can be quite distracting when you’re on a conference call to hear a neighbor’s music or conversation. If your phone is on speaker, keep the volume low or close your door. Keep music or other noise at a low level so you’re not disturbing your workspace associates.
Our most used shared space… the kitchen.
The kitchen is one of the busiest areas in our suite. Two easy rules of thumb here: First, if you wouldn’t want to smell it in your private office, don’t microwave it in the kitchen. Second, clean up after yourself. Please don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink or a trail of crumbs across the floor.
Utilize our most valued resources!
Our associates are our most valued resources. When you’re looking for help in a particular profession, why not see if someone in the suite can help you or your client? Creve Coeur Workspace is fortunate enough to have specialty tenants in many different areas of practice: tax pros, lawyers (Criminal, Estate, Social Security, and more), home health care, realtors, insurance agencies, tech help, and financial advisors just to name a few.
What do you find most useful about being in a shared workspace? If you’re not already in a shared workspace, how do you think it would benefit you most? We’d love to hear your thoughts! Happy coworking!

Have you thought about preparing your work space for productivity by utilizing essential oils? By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the essential oil craze everyone is talking about! Essential oils are beneficial to our health and even our productivity. If you have a problem, chances are there’s an essential oil to fix it. Essential oils can be used in so many ways, such as aromatherapy, topically, and even for cleaning purposes. This natural approach to wellness can help calm and soothe, encourage positivity, and also help to rid your space of unwanted smells.
Before you go crazy and buy a bunch of essential oils, check with any office mates you might have to make sure there are no particular scents that trigger allergies, etc. When choosing your essential oils, it is important to make sure you are buying good quality oils so you truly reap the many benefits they provide. The next step is deciding how you want to diffuse your essential oils, and there is no shortage of ways to diffuse your oils. Ultrasonic diffusers require a small amount of water and emit a fine mist that disperses the scent throughout the air. Nebulizing diffusers use an air pump that atomizes the essential oil into a fine mist, they do not use heat or water so the oil stays as pure as possible. Aromatherapy jewelry is a big hit for people who can't diffuse in their workplace. This gives you the ability to still enjoy and benefit from your essential oils without disturbing co-workers.
Essential oils can help you ditch all the harmful chemicals and cleaners used both in the office and at home. Most brands of essential oils sell blends that are great for fighting germs and help you sanitize correctly. Topical uses for essential oils include soaps, lotions, and scrubs. There are many DIY recipes for making your own, but always remember to follow the dilution instructions on the bottle. Different oils work in different ways for everyone, so start with scents you know you like. You can create a positive attitude, calm anxiousness, reduce headaches and nausea, or even just to deodorize your space!
The amount of essential oils on the market is endless! It can be overwhelming in the beginning, but here is a short list based on types of scents to help get you started:
