If you're reading this, you understand the pains that come alongside of working from home, in coffee shops, in your work vehicle, a public library, or even in the back of Panera.
Thankfully, there are many quick ways to instantly improve your productivity while trying to get work done. A few free secrets: all you need to do is make a quick run to Target, sign up for Spotify Premium, or check out your local coworking spaces.
There's more than just that however. Let's get to it.
1. Bright, natural lighting
This is not only crucial for the natural process of your body, Vitamin D, etc.. but it's truly has an enormous effect on our physical and mental well-being.
It turns out cooler light makes workers more productive. Exposure to natural light is especially beneficial to workers cooped up in an office all day. Natural light from both the morning and evening has been found to decrease depression and improve mood, energy, alertness and productivity.
Spotify Premium is our go to. We all have our own music that brightens the day, motivates us to run and exercise, meditate and relax. This holds true for working and productivity as well.
We've found that upbeat, instrumental jams along with throwing it back to the 70's, 80's, 90's, and even simply choosing the curated playlists Spotify already has listed. You can find and follow our work playlist here!
The easiest to maintain and the prettiest to look at: Snake Plant, Philodendron, and Jade.
4. Get rid of closeby distractions
We all know working from home is toxic because of distractions like dishes, Netflix, kids, pets, and so on. One of the quickest ways to be more productive is to make your workspace as clean and clear as possible.
Creating space for a dedicated workspace in a second bedroom of your house for work only is a good start.
Number 5. You guessed it. Coworking.
Actually, maybe not. Coworking is thriving in large cities, but only a small number of remote employees, small business owners, and entrepreneurs are turning to coworking spaces in cities under 60,000. We believe coworking cures the first four of these ideas instantly.
We've designed our space with all four, and more, in mind. One of our members put it best by saying, "I've gotten more done with my business in the past year than I ever would have at home."
Coworking is simply a shared office space, with business amenities, resources, and flexibility. It is on the rise, and estimated that by the end of this year, 1.7 million people will be working in over 19,000 coworking spaces.
Everyone gets their first day free to our coworking space! We want you to believe coworking for yourself. Stop by anytime, fill up a mug with fresh coffee, and get work done!
See you soon!
