How to Go to the Coffee Shop to Write Without Leaving Your Office
It's a depressing time for bad news on the Internet. The United Airlines viral video. A "60 Minutes" report on brain hacking.
However, if you just want to shut the bad news out and be productive, whether in an office or at home, but don't want to go to the coffee shop where everyone is talking about these viral stories (when we're not all on our devices), try Coffitivity. Try it for free or subscribe for $9. According to the Web site: "According to a peer-reviewed study out of the University of Chicago, "A moderate level of ambient noise is conducive to creative cognition." In a nutshell, this means being a tiny bit distracted helps you be more creative. This is why those AHA moments happen when we're brushing our teeth, taking a shower, or mowing the lawn!"
Or you could go to your local coffee shop (breaks help) and encounter these guys.
