A fresh school year is upon us, which means shopping for new stationery, textbooks and backpacks. With all this schoolwork, comes homework. It’s been proved that studying or working in a quiet, comfortable area improves focus. We’ve compiled some ideas to help you create the perfect work-from-home or study nook.
Get into the zone
Creating a silent, well-lit space is essential to get those study juices flowing. Decorate the space with light colours and paintings and plants to create a positive learning zone. If you want to take it a step up, invest in a diffuser to fill the room with pleasant scents.
A tidy space equals a tidy mind – it may surprise you how clean and organised surroundings can positively affect your ability to focus. Having an organised desk area really helps you to be a more productive with your studies. Add some drawers and shelves to keep studying materials and textbooks in check. A calendar or notice board can be great to keep you on track and motivated.
Sometimes it’s hard to make studying fun, but you can always make it comfortable! Opt for a comfy desk chair and pillows with simple yet cute designs, or take it a step up and build a reading corner lined with pillows, blankets, and of course, all the materials required to study. Just don’t get too comfy or you may fall asleep!
A new year of school will also bring a new flood of classes, study materials, and of course, homework. Keep your children (or yourself) inspired and organised by providing a functional and welcoming place to achieve all those homework goals.
