When you are doing homework after school, it is important to establish some sort of routine for yourself. This will allow you to get into the habit of doing your homework, and will allow you to establish good study habits. One part of this is to pick a good spot in the house to do your studying. If you can establish a little working area for yourself, you will further get into the habit of doing homework when you are in that one area.
One good area to do your homework would be the kitchen table. The kitchen table is good for dinner, but when you aren’t eating, it is a good spot to do your homework. You will be away from things like the TV, and you will be in the open, and with that you will be able to be closer to your parents, and hopefully a computer if you need access to one to do research.
Sometimes you can do homework in front of the TV. While I wouldn’t recommend this if you have to study for a test, or do a report, it can be a good place to just sit and relax while you start your homework. I usually do my writing in front of the TV, and it gives me something to look at when I need a little break from my thoughts. Again, it can be a distraction, but sometimes it is a good distraction.
Your bedroom is a good place to study assuming that you have quiet room where you can do some thinking. I would usually go to my room, put on my headphones, and listen to some music while I did homework. It was a good way to just have something to listen to while doing my homework, and I had my own space to do quiet studying. It allowed me to think deeply if I needed to.
Outside areas can be a good place to study as well. Sometimes just sitting out in the sun can be a good thing to do, and it gives you a little bit of energy. In the spring time, or whenever it was warm during the fall or winter time I would go outside simply for the change of pace that it provided for me. Anything that gives you incentive to do your homework is a good thing.
There are good places to study, and you don’t even have to keep it to the same area either. Sometimes you just have to know what mood that you are in when you are studying. Sometimes you need to be around people so that you don’t slack off, sometimes you need to be by yourself so that you can think, and sometimes you just need to be outside so that you don’t feel all cooped up. Whatever works best for you should be what you do.
