The power of studying in the same spot every dayPosted on 10/08/2016 by Jess O'Connor
One of the perks about studying from home is that you can technically study anywhere – from bed in your pajamas, from the library, from your local cafe. Wherever you can get electricity and an internet connection, you can study!
Yet, just because you can study from anywhere, doesn’t mean you should. There’s power in creating a designated study space and studying in the same spot every day.
Here are three ways this makes you more productive.
1. Everything you need is in one place
How many times have you gone to the library only to realise that you’ve left half your study notes at home? It’s easy to forget things when you’re rushing from one place to the next. With a designated study space, you can enjoy peace of mind that everything is right where you left it.
2. Your study space is a distraction-free zone
If you study somewhere different every day, you’re more likely to stumble across distractions. But if you’re studying in the same spot, you’ll start to associate it with learning. When you sit down at your desk, you’ll know it’s ‘study time’. The good news is, this also works in reverse – when you leave your desk, you’ll know study time is over and that you can relax.
3. Better study-life balance
Following on from point number two, creating a designated study space helps you enjoy better study-life balance. When you’re studying from home, it can be hard to switch off – especially if your study notes are scattered throughout the house. Many people find that keeping their study notes in one place helps them to feel more organised and less overwhelmed. And the good news is, you don’t need a home office to make this work: check out this motivated mum who created a study space in her wardrobe.
These are just some of the benefits of studying in the same spot every day. Have you tried this technique? Do you find that it makes you more productive? Share your thoughts in the comments below.Posted in Inspiration and motivation, Study From Home Tips | Tagged study tips | Leave a reply
