Creating a Study Place

Look for a place where you can study without interruption. The middle of the living room or the dining room table might not be the ideal place if people are always coming in and out. Your bedroom may not be the best place to study if you have TV, video games or other items around to distract you. You may be able to section off a corner of your room for studying, put a desk in a small closet or regularly study at the library or another quiet place where you will not be distracted.

If you cannot find a place entirely free of extra noise or people for studying, figure out a way to reduce the noise as much as possible. Put on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones or hang a curtain to try and block out the excess noise.

5. 
Find a chair that you can stand to sit in for an extended period of time. Add a lamp to make sure there is enough light or a curtain to block out excess light. Wear a light sweater or jacket if the space is too warm or short sleeves if it tends to be too cold. Make sure you are not too warm though; cooler temperatures are more likely to help you stay awake and focused.

Based on this passage, you can infer that wherever you choose to study, you should be...
  1. Alone
  2. Comfortable
  3. Cold
  4. In the dark

Try some chocolate to boost your energy and brain power or a piece of fruit for some healthy sugar. A bottle of water is also good to have on hand. Avoid candy bars, carbs and sugary drinks, though, because they can make you sleepy.

What kind of snack will you take into your study space?
