How Conducive Is Your Study Area To Learning?

Figure out a conspicuous space in your home where you can conduct your studies and school assignments comfortably, efficiently and with no distraction.

A good study area should have a desk or table big enough to spread out your books, notes, worksheets, etc. without cluttering them all being on top of each other. You do not want to make a mess, but you also do want to have ample room to work.

Make sure you have sufficient lighting. Ideally, it will be better if its near a window with an overhead light and perhaps even a small reading lamp.

Most importantly, the study location is relatively free from noise and distractions. That means no TV on in the room, no brothers or sisters running by, no phone conversations to listen in on, and no instant messenger or emails to keep you busy.

Whether or not you listen to music while you study depends on your personal preference. You may choose to ignore any phone calls, or turn off your cell phone, and forget about the urge to go and get a snack every ten or fifteen minutes.

Depending on how your home is oriented, you may be able to find this area at the kitchen or dining room table, or in your bedroom. You may be able to set aside a study space in your basement or an office in your home.

Some people find their homes too filled up with distractions, and prefer to take their studies somewhere or to the local library at most.

Wherever you choose to study, it is best if you can do it consistently in that same place all the time. Doing that, help your mind acclimatized that when you enter that area, you will know it is time to get down to business.

Your pens, pencils, paper, erasers, stapler, calculator, and anything else you use often can be kept nearby. Also, you can keep them in a bin or bag which can be pulled out whenever you need them.

This will avoid of having to stop studying which can also jeopardize your focus and concentration due to a sudden need to collect your supplies.

Selecting a study area is being overlooked at times though, it is the conducive to learning that can help enhance one’s educational skill and in the uplift of one’s school performance is what that really matters.
