Going to the Library[edit]

Going to school and staying out of the house is the best possible thing to do if you want to study. Being inside the house, a person may be tempted to turn on the television or play around on the Internet. This is why going to a library is recommended. Make sure you make a meal for yourself so you can study for a few hours there.

Of course, a library is not the quietest place around, if the surroundings are not controlled. Cell phones are the demons of today's world that wishes to have silence. Colleges are also not without their chatty valley girls with similes committing suicide. This is why I recommend getting the type of ear muffs a person wears when shooting a gun. Don't buy a gun, or use a gun in school; buy the ear muffs used. The ear muffs, at times, are better than noise canceling headphones. Ear muffs greatly reduce the sound level of your surroundings.

Also, unless you really, really have to use it, stay away from the Internet and a computer. Sometimes, when a person gets on the Internet, he or she dabbles time in listening to music, reading a blog, or etc. instead of doing school work. Staying away from a computer is best when studying in a library.

When inside the library, find a quiet place to sit. Make sure this area has ample lighting; lighting has an effect on the circadian system of the human body and keeps the mind awake and active.
