How To Create Your Comfort Study Space When Studying At Home
Home assignments and projects can be overwhelming sometimes. Especially, when you get back home after a long day of school. Sometimes, all you want to do is have a snack, turn on a favorite TV show, get under a warm cozy blanket, and zone out for the rest of the day. However, your homework won't be done on its own.
Studying at home might be exhausting, but there are some ways to make it more pleasant for yourself. The most important thing to keep in mind is don't be too hard on yourself and take your time while working from home. See the following tips on how to create your comfort study zone at home above!
1. Make yourself some hot coffee, cookies, or other snacks, before diving into your textbooks. Make sure to get a daily portion of some sweet treats. It's scientifically proven that the human brain uses sugar as its primary fuel!
2. While eating or having a snack, make sure to watch educational videos, such as TED Talks, lectures on YouTube, or listen to podcasts. It will be way more productive and valuable, rather than watching TikTok.
3. Clean up and organize your study space: get rid of dishes, empty cups, candy wrappers, and everything that is not related to studying. Leave only a glass of water or any other drink of choice.
4. Wash your face with cold water to feel more refreshed.
5. Turn off your phone, tablet, or computer. If your gadget is a carrier of educational information you're using for studying, such as a Word Document, PowerPoint Presentation, or Quizlet Flashcards, download it, then turn off the Internet.
6. Study! You can set up a schedule that works best for you. For example, you can break your time into study sessions of 30 minutes and take a quick 5-minute break after each.
7. Finally, take a short break. During your short break time, you can get a refill on your drink, stretch, open the window, listen to music, talk to someone, or call your loved one.
8. Repeat Step 6 and Step 7 a few times, following the time schedule you've set up.
9. When half of your homework is done, take a long break. During that time, you can prepare another snack, watch a motivational video, go for a short walk, read a book, do yoga, shower, take your dog outside, or do anything else you would like to do. Make sure that your break lasts at most 25 minutes, in order to avoid procrastination.
10. Get back to work!
