Do your kids struggle to concentrate too?
May = Exam time with SATS, GCE and GCSE’s all looming which can be a stressful time for parents and students.
With pressure on to hit those grades many people don’t know that your DIET and LIFESTYLE can seriously affect your performance.
Diet has a HUGE effect on your body and mind.
Choose the wrong meals and you can become sluggish and tired but give your brain the right fuel and you’ll be able to…
Think QUICKER, have a BETTER memory and IMPROVE your concentration.
Here’s some Top Tips:
1. Stay Away From Caffeine.
Drinking energy drinks like Red Bull or high amounts of tea and coffee will give you a short burst of energy but will burn out and give you a sugar crash.
2. Keep Your Body Hydrated.
Herbal drinks and water hydrate your brain and gets it to function at optimum level, delivering nutrients to the brain and eliminating toxins. Essential for concentration and mental alertness.
3. Avoid Snacking On Junk Food And Ordering Takeaways.
A lot of students make this mistake because they’re so busy revising they run out of time to buy and prepare food in advance. A long exam is like a mental marathon so endurance is crucial and having the right diet is a no-brainer.
4. Get a Good Night’s Sleep.
Cramming a week’s worth of revision into one night is never a good idea.
You’ll get much more benefit from a solid 8 hours’ sleep.
