As much as I love getting out and about I am a true homebody at heart. Home is where the good snacks are always stocked, the perfect TV show is always one click away and I never have to worry about getting sneezed on during flu season.
That being said, home is also the place where I am constantly putting together a to-do list of items that need to be purchased at the grocery store, cleaning supplies that have run out, and trying to calculate if I have enough time to put a load of wash in and get it in the dryer before I have to run out the door.
So sometimes, when I need to be really productive I have to head out into the world to get some stuff down without distractions. I have a few coffee shops I like to frequent because they are a) quiet b) never overcrowded and c) have awesome Wi-Fi. Because sometimes what you really need is to separate yourself from life’s never ending to-do lists and focus on one thing at a time and just GET IT DONE! I always have a million (ok at least three) writing projects I am working on at one time, and I find if I dedicate even on hour two in a coffee shop, I make so much more headway on my projects than I do trying to accomplish the same goal at home. Sometimes a change of scenery really is the best thing to get the creative juices flowing.
I hope everyone is having a productive and fulfilling week and if you are struggling get out there and give a new working space a chance! It could be the perfect shake up you need!
