Setting up the workplace sensibly – to increase concentration

September 15th, 2021 | by

Especially in times of online teaching, it is important to have a decent workspace at home.

For this, you need a desk that has sufficient incidence of light, preferably daylight through a window. If this is not or not sufficiently given, it is useful to install additional desk lighting.

The desk and its chair should be ergonomic and adapted to the user’s height. Working at the kitchen table, on the couch or in bed is not beneficial to concentration and is also physically stressful in the long term.

There should be order on the desk. Even if a genius masters chaos, it is still very distracting if you can hardly find your notepad because of all the stuff on the table and have to search every time to find your pencil, calculator or ruler.

The necessary material should be ready, so that you can find everything quickly and without searching. For this purpose, it is best to have everything you need ready at the start of the day. In addition to working materials, this can also include something to drink and a snack.

The workplace should also be in an undisturbed place. If you are constantly disturbed and interrupted, concentrated work is not possible. If you have problems with this, you can also read the article on the topic of interruptions to find a remedy.
