Have Good Lighting

No work can be properly done if there is not sufficient light to help you see and focus. Invest in a good light fixture right above your workspace, so you can keep your nook always well-lit, especially if others are sleeping in the same room.

Change Up the Workspace

Sitting in the same chair and at the same table can start to be uninspiring after a while. Arrange different working stations in the same space, so you have the opportunity to freely move around and refresh your layout without feeling stuck.

Take a Breather

Consistent long work hours can be exhausting. Setting up a homework nook near a balcony or door that can be fully opened will allow you to step outside, and take frequent breaks whenever you need to stretch or soak in some sun.
