10 Study Station Ideas
Imagine that you have 45 minutes to do your taxes. You have your choice of 2 locations to complete this very important task.
A. A messy kitchen with children running around, music blasting, a dog barking, the t.v. playing, and phones ringing.
B. A quiet, calm, and clean room with a tidy desk. There is a comfortable chair, ample lighting, organized supplies, and a calendar on the wall.
It’s safe to say we would all choose B, the designated study space.
