Tips for Staying Healthy during Exam Season
Student testing at the end of the year can bring much torment and stress. The pressure of passing final exams can produce bad habits such as pulling all-nighters, eating junk food for meals, consuming too much coffee and energy drinks and not getting any exercise. This can result in poor performance on exams and a weakened immune system.
This season, Mannatech offers tips for students to perform well during exam season by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Try implementing these four things to stay ahead mentally and physically. If nothing else, you’ll certainly feel better than many of your peers once exams are done.
- Get the rest you need. Don’t deprive yourself of sleep when you need it. Check out this Buffer article on the memory benefits of taking power naps.
- Eat better food for your brain. While it can be tempting to order take-out or snack on junk food in your dorm, eating the right foods will actually help you feel better and think clearly. Read this article for what to eat and what to avoid.
- Set aside time for physical activity. You may think there’s no time for exercise, but this article explains otherwise. Taking a five minute run, riding your bike around the boulevard or playing some table tennis will help you relieve stress and retain what you’ve been studying.
- Take study breaks as needed. Don’t force yourself to sit still for hours. This Huffington Post article encourages real breaks (not checking social media) every 90 minutes to renew energy needed to keep on working.
“The student population represents the next generation of entrepreneurs, problem solvers and world changers,” said Dr. Rob Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer of Mannatech. “If they can learn to incorporate healthier habits during the stressful exam season, they will be successful in future seasons as well.”
Dr. Sinnott also recommends that students take supplements such as Mannatech’s Optimal Support Packets, Advanced Ambrotose® powder and Omega-3 with Vitamin D3 capsules for healthy cognitive function and immune support.
