Tips For Going Back to School Remotely
This year has been a bit strange. OK, maybe a lot strange.. and going back to school doesn't necessarily mean the same thing this fall. So, while having a great set up at home for studying was important before, it's even more so now. Here are a few things that won't break the bank, but are definitely worth getting to make your study space the best space.
Ideally, you're soaking up that sunshine in the first part of your day, but the reality of studying and being a student doesn't always mean that's possible. You might have class (in person, or virtual), or you might just need a little extra sleep after a long night studying. With a HappyLight, you can be in class and be getting your daily dose of bright light. Did you know that HappyLight also helps you improve things like energy and focus? How awesome is that?
SmartLight Desk Lamp
Having a good light on your desk isn't just about about seeing better (though that is pretty important). Natural lighting from a good task light can help you see more clearly for longer because your eyes become less fatigued - and that's what makes the SmartLight Desk Lamp so great! If you needed some extra goodies, it has adjustable brightness and temperature and a USB port for charging.
Study Space Setup
It can be more relaxing to lay in bed, chill on the couch, or even pick a cozy spot on the floor to study, but it isn't the best for your body. Being seated for long periods of time can really mess with your body, so having a desk setup for studying that promotes a healthy posture will really help (you'll thank us later). It's pretty simple - elevate your screen to be eye level, grab a wireless keyboard, and get a good chair that lets you sit comfortably. Here is a great graphic that illustrates this. Even if you'll have in person classes this year, it's still worth having a great setup for studying at home.
This is just fantastic for the home setup or if you do take your studying mobile. Having a stand that keeps your book vertical (and holds the pages in place) is convenient and helps you keep that good posture we talked about in setting up your space.
A Reusable Water Bottle
It's easy to forget about hydrating like we should when we're studying (why can't we forget about snacking in the same way?). Getting a good reusable water bottle for the desk space is a good reminder and an easy way to track how much water you are actually drinking during the day (by the way, you should be drinking between 3.7-2.7 liters each day).
