Executive Garden Annexe

Why an Executive Garden Annexe is Key to Productivity

If you work from home, an executive garden annex can hugely increase your productivity in a number of ways. 

While the annex itself won’t do the work for you, creating a workspace within your annexe will allow a productive environment you may have never thought possible. Having a dedicated workspace that you don’t share with anyone can totally change the way you work.

Below are some of the reasons why an executive garden annexe is key to productivity.

An executive garden annexe eliminates distractions

Distractions are one of the biggest productivity killers of all time. According to experts, every time you change what you’re doing, you’ll lose at least 20% of your productivity. The thinking behind it is that it takes your brain a little bit of time to focus and catch up.

So if you’re in the office and someone asks you a question, or you’re working at home and you ask your housemate to turn down the TV, it creates more of a mental strain than simply completing the first task and moving on to the second.

If you can make your executive garden annex distraction-free, you’ll be able to enjoy a heightened level of productivity that might not be achievable elsewhere.

Working from home can create a positive working culture

Whether you’re an employee or in charge of your own business, working from home can bring a whole host of benefits. One of the main advantages to the freedom of people working from home is that have a more positive overall outlook towards their work. 

Allow workers extra freedom (such as working from home) helps ensure they feel good about their work environment, which in turn will help support them in doing some of their best work.

A person’s happiness in their job is main factor when it comes to productivity at work.

An office in your garden creates a good work-life balance

It is thought the average commute time in the UK is up an hour each way. That means your working day isn’t truly what you’re contracted to, but two extra hours per day – or ten extra hours per week.

There are some experts who believe that giving a worker more free time (and ideally working fewer hours) allows them to have a more enriched work environment, helping productivity shoot through the roof.

Some countries back this theory so much that they have dropped down to a four-day work week.

While you might not be able to necessarily reduce your hours spent working, simply leaving for work an hour later and getting home an hours earlier can have a huge impact. The better rested you are, the better your productivity is likely to be.

It separates your work life from your home life

When you work from home, it can be hard to set boundaries. Whichever room you work will double up as a something which can make it difficult to relax if you work in the room you normally eat, sleep or unwind in.

It can also be tempting to put a few extra hours in because you find it hard to switch off.

Instead, think of your garden annexe as your workplace. You wouldn’t head back out to the office at 10pm, so why is it okay to work in your own home at that hour? 

Keeping your work life separated with clear boundaries allows you to properly unwind at the end of the day and bring the best version of yourself to work in the morning. This clear line helps you set healthy limits with your job and ultimately helps with productivity.
