1. Light – Position your desk near a window so that you get optimum natural light. When you feel sunlight on your face and skin, you will feel more energized and get that extra boost needed to study. If no natural light is available, bring in light with the use of lamps and/or mirrors to reflect light from the outside in.2. Coffee fix – It’s only recommended that we take one to two cups of coffee a day. Anything more is testing your body. When you’ve met your coffee quota for the day and you’re still in need of that caffeine fix, place a cup or jar of coffee beans on your table. Like smelling salts, a whiff of this will give you that extra boost.3. Clean slate - For those who are easily distracted, remove all clutter from your table. If you’re a Facebook addict or a compulsive email checker, move your gadgets to another table in your study room so that’ll you check it fewer times throughout the day. Having a clean desk/ study room makes you feel more comfortable and in the mood to be productive.4. Break Time - Staying at your desk hours at a time will have dire effects on your health. According to a study by Draugiem Group, a social networking company, they found that taking a 17 minute break after 52 minutes of intense work allows the highest level of productivity. To help you in changing your “work behaviour,” have a handy kitchen timer by your side. You’ll never forget to take your break again.
