While you may not have considered it before, working in a coffee shop or cafe could be the boost to your productivity that you need. There are a ton of reasons that switching to a coffee shop can help you more than shifting from your office to working from home.
Sure, working from home seems ideal, you can sit around all day in your pajamas, and work the hours that suit you best. However, it's not without its drawbacks. If you're lacking the discipline to work from home, you could end up losing hours of work time to the TV or other distractions. Conversely, you could find yourself spending too much time working and never being able to relax.
The Benefits of Working in a Cafe
Ambient noise has been proven to help get your creative juices flowing - and there are not many places with such prominent ambiance as your local cafe. The hustle and bustle of a coffee shop provide just the right amount of background noise to help you produce your finest work.
A coffee shop allows you to get away from your colleagues, their behaviors, and the distractions of an office-based setting. Sure, there'll be a ton of people in a coffee shop, but they'll all be busy with their own lives, leaving you to focus on the task at hand - getting your work done.
Hard work is contagious. Seeing the coffee shop workers and other people using the environment to work will inspire you to do the same. When people all around you are working hard on their jobs, you're likely to feel compelled to do the same.
