At-Home Productivity Tips for College Students
As college students enter the new academic year, many find themselves adjusting to a new routine of online learning and working from home. Located in the heart of Northridge, Aspire is a student-focused complex that provides comfortable and luxurious apartments near CSUN. Our residents have been adjusting to their new routine by taking advantage of learning-center amenities and putting some best practices into place. Here are a few productivity tips for college students working from home:
Schedule Your Day
Trying to complete work at home can come with numerous distractions, and it can be easy to wander off task while trying to complete an assignment. Planning out a set schedule for your day to help designate a specific time for each assignment that needs completing can help improve focus. It’s best to physically write down an hourly schedule and keep it somewhere in plain sight. You can pick up an inexpensive planner on Amazon and take advantage of Aspire's Amazon HUB delivery boxes to get started.
Get Some Air
If you find yourself needing some motivation to stay focused on your work, getting outside for some fresh air has proven benefits. It encourages creativity, improves focus, boosts mental health, and improves mood and self-confidence. At Aspire, students can take advantage of our apartments' private patios and balconies as a relaxing space to enjoy the outdoors and delve into their work. If you're craving a bit more time outside, head to one of the local parks that are easily accessible from your apartment like Chatsworth Oak or Stoney Point.
Take Advantage of Available Resources
Aspire apartments are all located within walking distance of California State University at Northridge (CSUN). This allows students easy access to all the resources the university is providing to make it easier to complete work at home. CSUN has made efforts like moving The Oviatt Library online, as well as the Learning Resource Center so that students can access helpful information from home rather than heading to campus. However, the university is also offering designated spaces students can access if they need to break up their home routine.
All of these productivity tips for college students work best if you love where you live. The amenities at Aspire and our convenient location near CSUN make our Northridge apartments a great choice for students. Reach out today to schedule a tour and learn more about joining our community.
