NYU Local’s Study Position Kamasutra [PHOTOS]

You’re melting into your chair, left hand holding your sinking head up while your the right hand zooms through the internet. We call this position the “Internet Troll.” We get it: finals blow. And, considering that only one final exam stands between you and all-you-can-eat junk food and wonderful world of Netflix, it’s no surprise that you’re finding it increasingly difficult to keep focused. We’ve found a solution. Stand up. Stretch. Breathe. What you need is to spice up your daily study habits with some new, scholarly positions that’ll shake it up. No more spending hours on end in the “Internet Troll” phase, because we’re about to teach you our favorite study positions to spur the burgeoning mind.

Regardless of what stage of finals desperation you might find yourself in, changing your study position is bound to increase work flow and earn results. If you find yourself staring at your computer screen, textbook, or iPhone aimlessly, however, we suggest that you take a break. Go outside and get a breath of fresh air. Grab a quick bite (of real food, not those vending machine substitutes) to eat, run a lap around Washington Square Park, check out Beyoncé’s new album, or go home and take a nap! Don’t let finals week get the best of you—you got this.
