 Studying at home can be difficult. There, you may be more inclined to lie in bed and use your mobile phone all day. Sometimes, it can be good to dissociate yourself from a place that you perceive  as a space for relaxing and resting. Also, being in enclosed spaces without human contact can become suffocating and demotivating for some people. Fortunately, there are lots of co-working spaces and study lounges that inspire you to be a better student.
