Where to begin — tidy up and organize

The cleaner and more organized a study table is, the better your child can concentrate and make way to absorb new concepts and ideas. Having a tidy space around the study area can help concentrate when it’s time to sit down and study. An organized desk laden with storage boxes and desk organizers like TJENA can be your savior while they comfortably jot down all the answers, concepts, and ideas on an SVENSAS memo board. Want to take an extra effort? Don’t forget to use pegboards like SKADIS to their study desk to hold all the little things they need while working on problems or formulating answers.

Go ergonomic all the way!

Distance does matter. Especially between your child and the tables, chairs they use while studying. None of us are a huge fan of posture-related pains, for either ourselves or our kids. So the study surface distance should be about waist height. When your child sits down to read or study, she/he should be able to rest her/his elbows on the table without hunching up their shoulders. They can try the BESTABURS desk or something similar that works best for keeping away that posture pain. The key is to not have everything close to hand and allow them enough room to move, reach around for their books and other study material. When they are sitting at their desk, look for a chair like the ORFJALL swivel chair, it gives back support, is adjustable and swivels allowing for that all-important movement. Investing in an ergonomic chair has multiple benefits and sitting in the right posture to study is one of them.

Make the space comfortable

For a productive study session, create a space around your child that moves as per their convenience. A flexible setting allows them to study comfortably while giving room to move around and break the monotony. Pick a spot that will help you keep your child relaxed, focused, and alert. If they like studying in the comfort of their bed, a bed tray like KLIPSK along with a NAVLINGE spotlight clamped to it can save your day. Grab a cushion to keep them comfy and a pencil case to keep them well-equipped.

Light it up

A well-lit environment also helps concentration and relieve eye strain. Especially using light levels similar to today’s light. If you can, setting up a study space next to a window is ideal. But you can also recreate daylight using SKURUP lamps that have a similar light spectrum to natural sunshine. Task lighting on the desk helps provide focused lighting while studying.

Let the nature in

Letting in nature around the study area can drastically help with your child’s concentration, if you don’t have a window, plants are great for filtering stale air and oxygenating their study environment. Keeping indoor plants in your kid’s room can help purify the air and brighten up their room. You can add hanging pots like the elegant SKURAR or the self-watering SOMMARFEST — you can simply fix them to a wall if there’s not enough floor space!

Importance of good sleep

A good night’s sleep is your child’s best friend. Creating the right environment to get a good night’s sleep to recover the energy needed for a new study day is important. It is important for your child to wake up refreshed every day so that she/he can concentrate better and for that, they need a comfortable sleeping solution like a BEITO mattress and ergonomic pillows like SKOGSLOK. After all, being comfortable when you’re asleep is key for making the most of your waking hours.

Don’t forget the healthy meals

Nutrition plays an important role in keeping energy levels up. Keep their daily dose of Vitamin C in check by including SPRITTA in your kitchen. Finally, make sure to keep your child hydrated. Drinking water has been shown to help with focus when they’re stuck in the middle of preparation.

With all these tips and solutions, you become a partner for building the required environment to ace exams. (IANS/JC)
