Is your room or apartment a peaceful place? Does everything have a home where it lives? If your surroundings are cluttered, your mind will be cluttered as well. If there is visual clutter, it will be hard for you to concentrate on studies. Take some time to declutter and find homes for wayward items. If the task is too overwhelming, take 15 minutes 2-4 times a day to tackle the job. Recruit your roommates to join in. Use your TV time to do this, and you will be doubling your time!! If you need some ideas, see Three Steps to Decluttering.
