A to Z : EXAM SURVIVAL PLAN (Part 2)

SMART WAY TO BEAT STRESS (cont.)


F - Food for thought
Having a well balanced meal is essential. Having the right food will help motivate your brain to concentrate longer and more efficiently. Carbohydrate-rich food helps to release energy more slowly. Fried and oily food causes sleepiness so stock up on fruits and vegetables instead.

G - Group studying
The best way to remember something is to teach another person. Arrange for study group sessions where you can share and exchange information with your friends. Plus the woload is divided between group members making it easier to study.

H - Have a laugh
Laughter helps your brain to release endorphins. Endorphines help to lighten up your mood and make you feel much better. Try reading a short joke or listen to a silly song every 2 hours interval.

 I - Increase blood flow and oxygen intake
Exercising encourage blood flow to your brains. This help to keep you alert. Do some light stretching or jog on the spot for 5 minutes, every half an hour.
