Jordan now helps others unleash their potential to learn anything faster. Because he knew that spending hours reading books and watching seminars was not as effective as it could be.”

3) MIND MAPPING

“Tony Buzan was an English author and educational consultant. He was a promoter of mnemonic systems and mind mapping techniques
Tony Buzan popularised the idea of mental literacy, radiant thinking, and a technique called mind mapping, inspired by techniques used by Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, and Joseph D. Novak’s “concept mapping” techniques.”

5) STANDING DESK

From last researches we are sure about the more benefits of a “standing desk” insteading of the traditional one.  There’s a video that tells you why.

“Sitting down for brief periods can help us recover from stress or recuperate from exercise. But nowadays, our lifestyles make us sit much more than we move around. Are our bodies built for such a sedentary existence? Murat Dalkilinç investigates the hidden risks of sitting down.”
Today just rare companies take seriously to include Standing desks in their offices also to improve productivity.

Anyway for studying or working at home be sure that it’s really simple to make your own DIY Standing Desk without spending money.
