3 Ways to Rearrange your Room to Boost Productivity
As a college student, making a trip to a conducive study environment like the library, a cafe or park isn’t always an option. It can be difficult to get down to business and be productive in the space you’re used to relaxing in, but sometimes it will be necessary to transform a living environment into a workplace. Making a few quick changes to get your room organized can help eliminate distractions, so try these tips for rearranging to boost productivity.
1. Eliminate Clutter
The first and easiest thing to do to boost your productivity is to remove any items or messes that are not pertinent to the task at hand. You won’t be thinking about taking a break to grab another soda if there aren’t extra cans laying around and you won’t start planning out how you’re getting to that concert on Friday if you put that flyer you got on the quad in your drawer. Having a clear space, especially on your desk, can work wonders for keeping you focused on the task at hand.
2. Get the lighting right
Many students will ignore the need to properly light their workspace because of the backlights on their computers. Making sure your space is well lit can prevent you from becoming sleepy. In addition to this, looking at your bright screen will be more taxing on your eyes in a darker environment, so taking the time to get out a desk lamp or draw your curtains can be well worth it.
3. Increase Airflow
Locking yourself into a stale or stuffy room can keep your work as stagnant as the air. Cracking a door or opening a window will can ensure airflow that will help you stay focused and alert.
