10 Reasons Why Remote Work is Ideal for the Creative Process

remotework


Although there are a few cool office spaces out there, the majority of them are pretty plain and uninspiring. Working in an uninspired location and dealing with the noise and interruptions that are part of the traditional workplace is not exactly conducive to the creative process. More and more people are finding that remote work suites their work style more than spending weekdays between 9 am and 5pm at the office, and this may be especially true for creatives. Here are ten reasons why remote work is ideal for the creative process.

  1. The creative process needs quiet and most office environments offer a constant hum of activity.
  2. Solitude offers the freedom to try many new things without fear of being judged. Nothing hinders the creative process like worrying about an audience.
  3. Being able to work on a flexible schedule means you can create when the mood strikes, whether that’s at midnight or the middle of the afternoon. If inspiration isn’t happening, you can leave a problem and come back later without looking like a slacker to your officemates.
  4. The flexibility of remote work allows you to work around non-work related tasks, such as caregiving, so you have less stress. Having less stress cluttering up your mind will allow you to focus on your creative tasks.
  5. Remote workers can fit in exercise and cook nutritious meals which is good for the brain. Optimizing brain function, optimizes creativity.
  6. Working from home can minimize interruptions to the creative flow. Once you get in the state of flow, the last thing you need is for a nosey coworker to come by for a chat.
  7. You have the opportunity to change your environment anytime. Whether that means going for a walk around the block or taking a little trip somewhere, a change of scenery often sparks creativity.
  8. Without distractions such as coworkers and meetings you can focus solely on your work.
  9. You can set up your own inspirational environment. Perhaps you need soft lighting and mood music, or perhaps you like to plaster your work spaces with bold colours; no matter what inspires you, it is hard to mould the office environment to your own tastes.
  10. Freedom to seek out inspiration whenever/wherever. Creativity requires a spontaneity that the 9-5 office environment cannot provide.


Inspiration can be hard to find whether you’re freelancing or a regular employee. Remote work offers advantages that the traditional office environment cannot.
