Camy here! Okay, I have to admit I’m in a cleaning phase right now.

It seems like when my house and my office is messy, then my thoughts are messy and I just can’t work. I don’t know what the correlation is, but when I see clutter all over my office, I just can’t seem to concentrate on work very well.

But you know what the weird thing was? I didn’t realize this until a few years ago. So all those years in school when I had a hard time concentrating when I was supposed to be studying might be because my room was habitually a disaster area.

So here is some wisdom, learned almost 20 years too late--clean your room, and you might be able to study a bit better. Simple, yes?

Camy Tang writes romance with a kick of wasabi. Out now is the fourth book in her Sushi series, Weddings and Wasabi. She is a staff worker for her church youth group, and leads one of the worship teams for Sunday service. On her blog, she ponders frivolous things like knitting, running, dogs, and Asiana.

So, confess--did you already know this magical secret? What do you do to help you concentrate better?

Oh, I know what you mean! It's like, I clean up the bookshelves and dust them and straighten up the books and pick everything up off of the floor and the pillows sitting nicely... I suddenly feel cleaner and peaceful-er (excuse the made-up word) and, well, I just so get it!

Ahhhhh....welllllll, no I didn't know that.... But thanks so much, 'cause I'm homeschooled and tend to do my work in my room. :)

PS: My little word verification thing right now is frappe...I could really go for one of those right now! :)

Emii--I totally need a clean floor, too!

Trinka--hey, that's great! I hope this tip helps you study better!

I find things are just the opposite for me - at least with writing, not studying. I can't write in a clean room. I think it makes me feel like what I'm writing has to be perfect to match the room, which paralyzes my creativity.

Now that's interesting! I never thought of that.
