Next month will mark one year of chasing this blog as a full-time gig (yikes), and while working from home can be glorious there are definitely more than a few downsides. Namely: getting absolutely nothing done, feeling like your stuck at home all the time, and/or getting burnt out. 

I’ve dealt with all of the above and then some in terms of the downsides of working from home, and after wallowing in it for more than a few months I joined The Park last week, a co-op work space here in Louisville. My goal is to work from there 2-3 days a week in order to give myself some semblance of a schedule, and if you’re a freelancer or a work from home creative I’d highly suggest looking into a space like this. 

I’ve been able to get more in the few days that I’ve spent working here than I have in months of working from home. Don’t get me wrong, I love working from home, but when I’m at The Park I have no excuse to not get stuff done. My excuses at home include a big, comfortable couch, HBO Now, Hulu, Netflix, and the ability to lose the majority (or all) of my clothes.

And let’s be honest: working from home can get to be SO lonely. I hate most people (I’m man enough to admit it), but having other bodies around me while I’m working makes me feel like way less of a slave to my computer than when I’m sitting at home in silence working well into the night. 

Other positives about working from a co-op work space? The ability to shut down your computer at the end of your “work-day”. It may sound silly to those of you that don’t understand the struggle of juggling a work/life balance, but to those of you that live the struggle like I do will know exactly what I mean. 

So my challenge to you this Monday (if you’re a self-employed #boss) is to find a co-op work space in your hometown and give it a try for a day (Day passes are available at The Park for $15) then let me know how it worked out for you. I promise you won’t regret it. If you need me I’ll be working from my comfy new chair surrounded by other breathing bodies and loving every minute of it.
