Get ready to study

Have a healthy snack and try to do something active before starting your homework. This helps your brain to focus and study well.

Find a good place to study

Find somewhere quiet away from everybody so you can focus. Stay away from anything that might grab your attention like your iPad or the TV. Make sure you're nice and comfy!
