As advent is now well and truly upon us be careful not to relax (too much) but instead get creative in how and where you spend your time...
Pick up your laptop and park yourself in a cool place you feel you can work from... Whilst some of us may not have the fab surroundings of a quirky office space (like lucky Bangkok students have at their fingertips, seen on Cool Hunter last month) to get our creative juices flowing, you can certainly think further afield and break the monotony of your student house or parents spare room! Maybe it is your local coffee shop or bar (of course the one with free WiFi), or maybe there is a library or art gallery you would feel more at home in... A small snapshot of ideas from across the UK, just to give you a jump start, think about:
- Brindleyplace, Birmingham - a host of bars and cafes and restaurants next to the river, which tends to be quieter during the day.
- Leeds Library - quiet and peaceful, they have study rooms and stunning architecture!
- London South Bank - an artistic workspace and coffee shop, the open arena gives you a buzz without taking away from the job in hand.
Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, try and enjoy the next few weeks, and set yourself up to hit 2011 running!
