Do you feel tired of working on the same place all day long?

So why don’t you try something like work in a different office or in your local park?

Many people reports that the office is actually the least desirable place to work in terms of productivity and efficiency. In fact, there’s a reason for that. Trapping ourselves indoors has created what health experts call a “nature deficit disorder” resulting from too little time spend outside. Getting outdoors can do great things for your health. Reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and improving immune function are among nature’s health benefits. But if you really need to work inside your office, add some nature elements in your workspace. Elements of nature into your workday can also give your brain a boost, resulting in increased productivity, focus and creativity.

Consider these excellent places to work outside the office:

Home – Many freelancers enjoy home offices decked out with desks, printers, and other handy supplies. Although working in the same room sometimes breeds monotony and boredom, you might not want to get in your car and leave the house.  Shall we say pajama day?

Change it up by working in a different room – one you normally wouldn’t consider for working. Try the kitchen counter, the backyard swing, the chaise lounge in your bedroom. Just step outside your comfort zone for a change of pace.

Green Spaces – Your local park might not feature an Internet connection, but sometimes that works in your favor. Disconnect from the World Wide Web and focus instead on an offline project or a planning session. The natural surroundings, cool breeze, and soft nature sounds might inspire renewed creativity.

Coworking – If you want the home-away-from-home office experience, investigate cowork spaces in your city. Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently (or not), but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other.

Coffee Shops – Sometimes produces just as much noise as a corporate bullpen, but the ambiance keeps some people calm and focused. From coffee houses and bakeries to five-star eateries, grab a few bites of brain food and piggyback on the establishment’s Wi-Fi connection.
