Top tips to increase your productivity through your study room

We’re stuck at home with limited access to many public spaces outdoors, including libraries, co-working spaces and educational institutions. These are just some examples of study areas you may utilise when you need a change in scenery to keep yourself engaged whilst you’re studying. Now, we’re being forced within the four walls of our home which means creating a workspace or room has never been more important. 

The learning environment that students work in can have a major impact on productivity, which is why creating a dedicated workspace that can improve your productivity is important. Here are some top study room design tips to help increase your productivity. 

Focus on workspace layout

How you layout your workspace depends very much on your study style. Do you prefer complete silence so you can completely focus and concentrate on the task at hand? Or perhaps you like a background noise to motivate you and keep you going? 

Whatever your style, make sure your workspace accommodates to it. Ensure you have all your materials and stationary in close proximity so they’re easy to reach, have your folders or notes near your desk so you can use them when you need and even have a break area, fitted with a luxury coffee table so you can escape for a little before getting back to your studying. 

Decorate with plants

Plants can not only provide a welcoming environment to your study area but they can also be extremely helpful for your productivity. There has been countless amounts of research that has confirmed the benefits of plants improving workplace productivity - the same can be helped with your study room too. 

Colour use

Believe it or not, the colour of your workspace can seriously influence your mood and although you may find the paint looks good, psychologically it may not be the best choice for your productivity.

When you’re designing your study room, it’s suggested that the 3 ideal colours to consider are green, blue and orange. This is because each of the colours are associated with factors such as wellbeing, focus, nature and creativity. 

Quality air and lighting

Working in an environment that is consistent with low quality air filtration and poor lighting can drastically reduce your productivity. Sometimes, this doesn’t just mean cracking open a window as air pollution outside can still be a problem. 

Sticking to plants in your study room can be the ultimate solution to filtering your inside air through photosynthesis. Similarly, use natural lighting to help bright up your room to expose daylight and help with your concentration.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
