For remote and independent workers, having the right tools in place can make the difference between reaching full productivity. From having a solid morning routine and having a solid WiFi connection, location actually plays a huge part in giving you the maximum amount of boosting productivity.

So, what’s the secret to boosting your own workday productivity? It’s simpler than you think (and you might already be doing it) – spend the day working in a coffee shop.

How Coffee Shops Help Boost Productivity

Working in a coffee shop may be an unexpected answer to boosting your own productivity and creativity, but it’s also one that is becoming increasingly popular among remote and independent workers.

There’s research indicating that productivity can be contagious in certain spaces – and coffee shops encourage these kinds of behaviors. The research also indicates that working around others can encourage you to work harder – this is especially good for those that have trouble with procrastination and beating the afternoon workday slump.

Remote and independent workers aren’t the only ones that can get the benefits from working in a coffee shop. Even if you work in an office, you can still get the benefits from working in a coffee shop with apps like Coffitivity, which help create the same atmosphere as going to an actual shop.

Besides providing remote and independent workers with a change of scenery from their homes and the chance to work outside of their familiar surroundings, spending the day working in a coffee shop can be a major boost for workday productivity.
