Further size of study table should not be too big or too small. It should be just size that is comfortable for working of student. A big sized table diminishes working capacity, whereas small table gives rise to depression.
It is a good idea to place bookshelves on sides rather than above study table. Books placed above study table tend to exert pressure and create unnecessary stress.
.The study books should be placed in cupboard in cabinet rather than in open. And if shutter of cupboard is kept shut flow of energy is constantly maintained.
The books in study chamber should be kept in east, north, Southwest, South or West direction and not in North - East. In addition to that if north - east direction bears heavy weight it shall pressurize students' mind.
The study room should be bright and lit up well. Dingy, dimly lit rooms are depressing and in conducive to a child’s education, growth and attitude.
An adequate amount of sunlight is a boon for a balanced all-round development. However if you do not get natural light due to any reason, adequate suitable artificial lighting is a must however is should be remembered that no artificial light can ever give benefits of natural lighting.
While studying, shadow of student should not fall on books being studied.
A study lamp is another way of energizing room in focusing on task in hand. The light of lamp should be bright preferably white and care should be taken that it does not fall directly on eyes and should not be too harsh on eyes. Table lamp should be kept in Southeast corner of table. Energizing Study Rooms for better concentration
·Gayatri chants early morning is a powerful tool to energies living spaces. You do not have to recite mantra always, even a cassette has a great effect, just experiment with it.
·A television playing in a room interrupts concentration whereas music does not. A TV serial being played in next room at loud volume can cause discomfort and may result in lack of concentration.
·Playing inspirational and soothing music in children’s room is very effective. Study and music go together well. Point to remember is that it should not cause distraction and should be predominantly be instrumental.
·Are you aware of Earth’s magnetic field and how it affects magnetic materials. Do you know your blood contains lot of iron? Ensure that you sleep with head towards East or South. A person becomes learned by placing his head towards East and is troubled by distressing thoughts by lying down with his head placed in Westward direction. By placing head in South direction you ensure good health and sound sleep.
·A pendulum watch is a must in each and every study room as it instills a sense of movement and life. Inspirational Pictures
Place an inspirational picture in child’s room. The picture could be that of a galloping horse, a rising Sun all these are symbols of strength and inspire even weakest.
The study room should have images of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Saraswati.
Hang framed certificates or display trophies etc won by you on South wall. Reminding winnings and successes of past invariably revive faith in your self and fighting sprit in you.
Do not put pictures depicting any battle scenes, fights, dragons, skeletons etc as these have a negative effect and cause negative energy to flow in room.
Remember what you become depends a lot on what you eat, what you see and what you hear. So be careful in choosing these things.
One should not have pictures depicting war scenes (even if they belong to Epic Mahabharata or Ramayan battles). Similarly scenes depicting negativities of life like sorrow, struggle, violence (including that of wild beasts), and tragedy and have calamities.
