Believe it or not, there are places that a student shouldn’t use for studying. An ideal place is somewhere quiet where you can stay comfortably for a long period of time without being distracted.
Of course, it all depends on the circumstances, some of which can’t be helped. But if possible, try to avoid the following places when you plan to study:
Living room. Especially if it houses the television and entertainment system. It is very easy to turn on the TV or the stereo while doing homework or studying. Unless your will power is strong and you do not like too much noise, then you can go ahead and study here.
At work. If you’re an adult working during the day and studying at night, or a working student, your place of work can also be very distracting. Some companies are strict and do not like to catch their employees doing other things other than work-related stuff. Besides, even if you are the master (or mistress) of multi-tasking, you can only be efficient in doing one thing.
Bedroom. The bedroom is not an ideal place to study. The bed is a very good at luring people to relax and sleep. It may also hold a lot of things that can distract a person from studying – TV, radio, the Internet, video games, books, graphic novels, etc. Again, if your will is weak, this is not an ideal place to do some serious studying.
