Link to Love: Coffee Shop Creativity
It's no secret that I love coffee. I love drinking it at home in the mornings or on breaks at work, but I especially love drinking it in coffee shops. I like the atmosphere.
That's why I was so interested in this post on The Real Reason Coffee Shops Boost Productivity by David Burkus. Check it out. It's super short and informative.
It turns out that I like the atmosphere for a reason. Actual scientific studies have proven that the level of background noise in coffee shops boosts creativity. I always thought that I got more done at coffee shops because I was removing myself from the myriad of procrastination activities that lurk in my home, and I still think that's a big part of it, but I think that this article makes a valid point.
What do you think? Do you feel more creative in coffee shops too?
