It can be hard to focus out of the classroom. At home distractions multiply and grades can suffer. Here are some simple tips to design an at home “desk” that will improve your focus and creativity.
Follow these tips, snap a pic of your decorated study space, and we might just share it here with our followers!
- Find Your Atmosphere
Pick a place with the right vibe for studying. Somewhere quiet and free from distractions. Even in a small apartment there is a corner that can become your own!
- Face A Window
Nature and light visual stimulation can actually improve your energy levels and keep you focused. Inevitably your eyes will wander while studying. Staring at a blank wall will drive you crazy and your brain will seek stimulation from distracting websites. If you have a view of any kind your brain will peak every once in a while, taking little breaks that don’t interrupt your flow.
- Get Lit
It is extremely important to have the right lighting while studying. A dark room with a bright computer screen is bad for your eyes and will make you feel drained. It is worth the investment to buy a lamp for your desk and make sure the room’s lights are always on. Remember the window you’re sitting in front of? Open those shades and there is a great source of light as well.
- Don’t Hate, Decorate
News flash: if you enjoy the space you study in, you will be more likely to study. Use stickers, paint, toys and whatever else that will make your study space fun. Give your space a theme based on your favorite thing, be it a sports team, animal, or favorite company (hint, its Numerade).
