In order to reinforce the person's increasing control over when and where he studies (Thoresen & Mahoney, 1974) for his time to be spent more effectively, the student is asked to decide on specific places where he will study. Within the home environment, it may be at a desk in a particular room. At the learning institution, it could be in the library. Once decided, he goes to the specific place to study. The chosen localities become the places of work. Other places are free space where he has no obligation to himself to even think of work. This discrimination makes it much easier to work. If the student is jaded, he leaves his place of work. Away from his place of work he is free to let go and relax, with no associated guilt. In giving himself permission to take times to relax and recuperate, he returns to the selected study environment with a readiness and ability to concentrate and work effectively.
