For many, working from home creates the ideal work-life balance, with non-existent commutes and a relaxed, familiar environment which helps you to get work done without the usual workplace distractions.
However, home-office set-ups can sometimes be less than ideal, and home workers are constantly seeking ways to enhance their productivity and well-being, as well as their personal comfort. If you’re a home worker who’s had enough of being crammed into a box room or balancing your laptop on the coffee table, maybe it’s time to look outside your home for the ultimate office solution.
Working from a garden office space detached from the house can not only make your working day more productive, it might even make you happier. And here’s why:
Being close to nature reduces stress
We are always being reminded of the importance of getting outdoors and how this can positively impact our health and well-being. And although we aren’t suggesting that you should be doing your emails out on the lawn, looking out onto your garden can help to create a calmer and more creative environment. Add some glass sliding doors to help to bring the outside in!
Home distractions become a thing of the past
Whether it’s noisy family members, the home phone ringing or the contents of the fridge calling your name, with a garden office you are the perfect distance away from the home to block out all of those distractions, yet close enough to keep it practical. With a quiet space dedicated to your work away from your family life, you can enjoy a clearer distinction between the two – maybe nipping back to the house for a well-earned brew now and again!
You’ll enjoy your commute again
Maybe the reason you started working from home was due to a nightmare commute that you were happy to see the back of. However, many home workers struggle with the lack of separation between work and home. The simple action of walking out of your back door and down the garden path gets you into a productive mindset and can help you to focus – as well as giving you an invigorating blast of fresh air to get you going for the day. And when it’s time to shut shop at the end of the day, you’ll enjoy that same feeling of leaving everything behind and coming home.
