Every holiday season at this time of year, many hard-working Canadians use the time between Christmas and New Year’s to relax. Some who rent Toronto office space, however, use this time to catch up on work because there are far less distractions.

I was very surprised when I came to work Christmas afternoon (beats watching bad TV) and each day during that entire week, that I was not alone! Many tenants in my Toronto office space for rent on the 18th floor of  One Yonge Street (Telsec Business Centres) also used this opportunity to get more work done. And because their phones weren’t ringing off the hook in their Toronto office space, there was less stress and more smiles. We all exchanged greetings and had time to get back home for Chirstmas dinner with our loved ones.

Then it dawned on me that one of the biggest advantages of having Toronto office space for rent in this accessible downtown location is that I have complete 24/7 access. If I wanted to come in at 2 am in the morning on any given day of the week, it wouldn’t be a problem. That especially includes holidays. And it’s a breeze to go through the multi-level security in the building here at One Yonge Street.

Today, most business people, because of this seemingly never-ending economic downturn, are working longer hours simply to maintain the same profits. Bottom line: we’re all working harder. So here’s some advice to help you achieve a more realxing life balance: Before you decide on your downtown Toronto office space for rent arrangements, make sure the building you rent has 24/7 access and some existing recreational opportunities nearby where you can kick back and relax after a hard day’s (or night’s) work.

Consider Toronto office space for rent properties along, or close to, Lake Ontario. You can step outside at lunch or after work and:

  • Escape to the Toronto Islands or Harbourfront.
  • Relax at numerous parks and parkettes along the waterfront.
  • Visit nearby sports bars, restaurants, coffee shops and fine dining spots.
  • Go to your favourite sports event or attraction at the Rogers Centre, Air Canada Centre (ACC) or Exhibition Place.
  • Take in a play or musical in Toronto’s famous theatre district.
  • Shop at the Eaton Centre, major supermarkets and big box retailers.

Good luck with your business in 2012 and beyond.
