In this day and age, we find ourselves in a world where working from home is becoming more normalized than ever before. This is a good thing according to most people, but there are also those who claim that getting work done at home is actually harder for them. If you’re someone who struggles with concentrating at home, here’s why you may benefit from getting your work done at a cafe.
There’s something to be said about the way we’re influenced by our environment. When we’re at work, we know that we’re there to work. When we’re at home, it can be hard for some to mentally convince themselves that their home is now also a place of work. If you go to a cafe, you can make it your new “place of work”.
A big part of this mentality shift also has to do with distractions. At home, we have endless distractions. Of course, this depends heavily on what our family situation looks like, but even when we’re alone, we may procrastinate more by watching another Netflix show, or whatever it is. At a cafe, you’re on a mission, and less likely to be distracted.
If you’re at a cafe, you’ve got endless stores of freshly brewed coffee to keep you going. You do have to pay for it, but hey, it’s for work purposes!
