All of us are working hard to achieve the perfect grades that we desire but when we study, books replace food! We get into the habit of glugging coffee and gobbling chips because we don’t want to waste time on food. But don’t you think that nutrition should also be part of your study plan? Without it you can achieve nothing! Here are some useful tips for you:

  1. Breakfast should be your new study buddy!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Rather than ranting on about the importance of breakfast, let me give you a few ways you can ‘eat smart’. Don’t just consume coffee and donut. Along with that you can add some fruit to give you the much required protein, calcium and fibre. So, a bowl of cereal with milk and a piece of fruit would do the trick. Or try a cereal bar with milk.

  1. Make sure that you eat at regular intervals.

These intervals can also work as your study breaks! Eating regular meals helps keep the nutrient and energy levels stable, curbing the temptation of high-calorie snacks.

  1. Try having a few well-balanced, smaller meals, like toast spread with peanut butter, hummus or tuna, or a piece of cheese with fruit. The standard three-big-meals-a-day sometimes tends to make you slow and sleepy.
  1. Going bananas should be your new goal!

Bananas rank high among the best foods you can eat for your brain. You can also try blueberries because they contain nutrients and powerful antioxidants. The natural sugars in fruit offer good energy and give you the much needed sugar for you to stay active and healthy!

  1. Choose the right beverages. Keep the caffeine and sugar to a minimum.

Too much caffeine can make you tense! Restrict their intake to about 2 or 2 and a half cups a day. Or you can replace them with water, fruit juice, milk and aromatic green tea!

As they say, “eat fresh food, drink lots of warm water and exercise regularly.” Do not ignore your health during the coming revision and examination periods. Health is wealth! ResLink wishes you good luck for your exams!
