Working in a pleasant atmosphere
Unconscious factors influence the learning process. If you are under stress (a test tomorrow), have only 30 minutes left, have not eaten yet, suffer from tooth ache and are waiting for a telephone call, you are most likely not open for learning. It may be better not to try to learn in this situation, but to first solve the urgent issues and hope for a moment of peace later on. If this is possible, your learning experience will improve with the better atmosphere.
