Good morning and welcome to another edition of Workspaces.
Yesterday, Bri Kimmel tweeted:
Wisconsin is coincidentally where I'm from and currently live (and work remotely!). This made me curious, how many Workspaces readers are currently working remotely from somewhere in the midwest?
Feel free to reply and introduce yourself :)

Jack Bridger is the host of Scaling DevTools, a podcast obsessed with developer tool growth.
He has interviewed the people behind established DevTools like Algolia, SendGrid & AWS. As well as up and coming DevTool startups like Neptune.ai and AssemblyAI to find out how side projects become unicorns.
Equipment:
What is your favorite item in your workspace?
I love my Ergotron monitor mount. I originally bought a cheap one but it just wasn't good enough for a big screen.

The Ergotron feels like it will last a lifetime and can be adjusted to any position with ease.
How do you spark creativity?
I try to be creative away from my desk. Sitting at the dining table with a big A3 notebook or walking in my local park with a little notepad to hand.

I try to limit desk time to getting stuff done and away-from-desk time for coming up with plans and working on ideas.
How do you manage work-life balance?
My body naturally regulates it by giving me really bad neck and shoulder pains when I spend too much time at the desk. If I spend all weekend at my desk, I'll be in agony by the following Wednesday.

So I take regular tea breaks. I try to stretch out as much as possible and go for walks at lunchtime. And I try to limit time at my desk.
Thanks for tuning in for another edition of Workspaces!
If you enjoyed this edition, please consider forwarding it to someone that you think would love it just as much!
