Finding a workspace that works for you is important. It can be the difference between being productive and feeling like you're stuck in a rut. 


There are a lot of options for workspace outside of the home. People have to evaluate what kind of workspace they need in order to be productive. 


Do they need quiet or can they handle some ambient noise? 

Do they need to be able to move around or stay in one place? 

Do they need to be able to access certain resources, like a printer or scanner?


Coffee shops can be great workspace because they usually have good coffee and snacks. They also tend to have some outlets and WiFi available. However, they can also be noisy and crowded, which can make it difficult to concentrate. They can also have uncomfortable furniture (read "sitting on a wood bench for 8 hours sucks") and tend to close in the early afternoon.


Libraries can be great workspace because they are usually very quiet, free to use, and have a lot of resources available.  They can be a great place right down the street that are accessible throughout the day and are a great public utility. However, they can also be very crowded, which can make it difficult to concentrate. They also have a lot of rules (no food, no talking, no fun).


Coworking spaces can be great option because they provide a community atmosphere and usually have good resources available (can you say free kombucha?), and are meant for a remote worker like yourself. However, they can also be expensive might not have all the resources you need (like sit to stand desks or ample space for meetings and calls).


All this to say, there is no perfect solution out there but it's about finding what's right for you  and your work style. So if you're feeling cramped at home, try out a few different workspace options until you find what works best for you!
