It is important to have uninterrupted study time. You may have to hang a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door.

The amount of light you need depends on what you are doing. The important thing is that you can clearly see what you need to see without any discomfort.

If your Study Place is too warm, you might become sleepy. If it is too cold, your thinking may slow down and become unclear. Select a temperature at which your mind and body function best.
