When it Comes to Studying, a Desk is Best
Students in the Denver area and across the country are in the process of going back to school. Is your student set up for success when it comes to studying, homework, projects, and test prep?
Your favorite student may tell you that there are plenty of good places to study — including the couch, their bed, a patio lounger or even the kitchen table. While each of these settings is comfortable and useful for certain activities, they are not ideal for studying.
Here are the reasons a desk is best for studying:
The designated purpose of a desk is to study or complete work. It minimizes distractions and promotes production. It puts the user in the mindset of the task at hand.
A desk isn’t overly comfortable so the risk of poor posture or falling asleep is minimized. Studies show that doing homework in your bed is detrimental to sleep.
A desk provides a clutter-free environment. People often say, “A clutter-free desk = a clutter-free mind”. At the kitchen table, the student may happen upon food, people eating, mail or other distractions.
A desk can even serve as a reminder to study … a beacon of responsibility!
A properly stocked desk contains all of the items needed to study or complete assignments or homework. It’s a safe place to store supplies, books, devices and notes. This allows the student to sit down and get right to the task at hand.
A desk sends a signal to others that studying is underway – this supports concentration and focus.
