Q.I absolutely LOVE my coworking space… BUT… It can be so NOISY at times. Don't get me wrong, I can add to the din. I also don't like to work in a library like setting. Any answers?
Despite the fact that some background noise actually increases creativity because it induces a certain amount of discomfort, and, in turn, creates a level of agitation that catalyses more off-beat and outside-the-box thinking, background noise can push the too-loud boundary. This happens in all workspaces, but there are certain methods you can employ to reduce the disquiet (no pun intended).
