So, here we go!
#1. Increase Productivity
If you have a messy table, it is unlikely you can stay focused for a long time. Looking for something that you need can be time-consuming and distracting. So, it’s important to keep everything next to you.
5 tips to increase productivity at home:
- Keep your writing desk clean: it should be your daily habit. Don’t let the mess take your time and spoil your well-being
- Put all things you don’t use daily into lockers: declutter your workplace to have fewer distractions
- Shift study and relax: the educational process consists of active and passive education. It is a great idea to boost productivity shifting zones for study and relax
- Add things that motivate you: being a motivated person means having a strong desire to achieve your goals
- Manage your time according to your mood: it’s unlikely you can study efficiently if you don’t want to. Thus, take a pause when you need
Obviously, having a well-organized workplace helps you increase productivity and, therefore, you can find time to spend it with your friends and family.
#2. Become Smarter
Let’s be real: it’s nearly impossible to complete tasks on a high level always. However, there are several ways to become smarter, and workplace organization plays an important role. If you want to boost brain functions, do the following things:
- Put live plants on your table: Plants not only clean the air but boost spirits as well. Plus, they can be used as decorations as well. If you have no idea what plants are the best for your house, pick up one of the following: aloe, pothos, spider plant, rubber tree, or dieffenbachia.
- Start using modern gadgets: all students use computers for the educational purposes. However, there are many other gadgets that might be useful as well. For example, a smart pen, a digital highlighter, and a tablet can be high on your list.
- Drink a cup of green tea: scholars claim that green tea contains L-theanine and caffeine that improve brain functions and help to stay focused. Once you get tired, it’s time to drink a cup of green tea.
The smarter you are, the better it is for you to study efficiently. Here are some amazing study tips for teachers and students.
#3. Remember All Tasks
Being a student means doing assignments, reading useful articles, and communicating with your group mates. All these factors affect your concentration and you might forget something. However, if you have a well-organized workplace, you can remember all tasks and much more.
Here are several ways to remember tasks:
- Stickers: you can write down tasks and mark their urgency (according to the color of a sticker) and string it on your monitor.
- Apps: install reminders on your computer to tick tasks and start working on them when it’s time to do it.
- Reminder maps: hang a paper with things that you need to accomplish next week. Marker them with different colors and tick when the task is done. Don’t forget to keep it next to you.
Plus, there are many exercises to train your memory at home. So, you can not only remind things but also train memory in general.
#4. Boost Inspiration
To start studying better, you need to boost inspiration. If you’re ready to do this, you’d better create an inspirational corner at home. Some people claim that dividing your workplace into two zones (computer and non-computer ones) is beneficial. The reason is your non-computer zone helps to boost inspiration (and it is also used for relax). So, it is another idea to organize a perfect workplace once and for all.
Ideas how to boost inspiration:
- String a motivational quote
- Put books you like
- Switch on music
- Hang a picture
- Place photos of your dearest and nearest
No matter what things inspire you, it’s a great idea to keep these things next to you. If you’re inspired, you’re motivated to do things faster and better.
#5. Prevent Health Problems
Your workplace is not just a writing desk, bookshelves, and your computer. It is always a comfortable environment to work in. Thus, you need to do your best and then it can help to prevent health problems.
Here are some ways to improve your health at workplace:
- Pick up a comfortable office chair: a perfect office chair should be not only comfortable and cozy. It should also support the lower back and promote posture.
- Set proper lighting: a good elimination helps to prevent eyesight problems, so you’d better be picky about your office desk. It should have 4000K level adjustment
- Start using mini elliptical trainers: doing physical exercises is important to your health, so you need to train always. Thus, mini elliptical trainers help to do activities while studying
- Put sitting/standing desks: if you want to reduce a risk of health problems, you need to study standing from time to time. For example, you can read books or master your speech. Thus, put both desks and improve your health once and for all
In general, workplace organization is a great way to become a better student, doing your tasks faster without sacrificing the quality. After all, most young people would like studying better and more productive.
