It Boost Creativity.

The enemy of creativity is routine and the easiest way to switch things up is with an environment change, even if it is just for one day. Placing yourself in new surrounds will stimulate all of the sense creating newfound inspiration.

You’ll Have Fewer Distractions.

Don’t believe us? Think about it… how many times has your concentration been sidetracked by water cooler chats and work questions? We all know how hard it is to focus after these types of interruptions, and as a result, our productivity is lessened. However, while at a coffee shop, you’re provided with the benefit of anonymity and the dull buzz of exciting activity.

You’ll Meet New People.

Along with a new environment comes new people. You never know who else may be having a “coffee shop day” at the same time you are. New people present new problems, perspectives and connections that will fuel your creative mind.

Here’s a few tips on how to make the most out of your coffee shop visits:

  • Switch things up! Try a new coffee shop every time to avoid the feeling of routine.
  • Be courteous to the workers. You never know when they’ll return the favor ;)
  • Avoid sitting by the door or register to eliminate extra distractions.
  • Come with a full charge, just in case a power outlet isn’t accessible.
