Will finals starting Monday, I know many of you will be studying hard this weekend – if you haven’t already. Just as effective study habits and adequate rest are important to passing your exams, proper nutrition is also essential to do well. Good nutrition provides us with the fuel to stay awake and focused, but food also plays a role in the retention and recall of information – both very important on exam day.
Sargent Choice Nutrition Center has put together a list of the top 5 ways healthy eating can make you smarter. Check it out here.
The key to surviving finals is to keep yourself healthy: eat right, drink lots of water, exercise, and get enough sleep. Those 5-hour energy drinks may sound enticing, but they’re rarely effective in improving your studying, and may ultimately do more harm than good.
Let us know what snacks keeps you going strong while studying; we’re always interested in getting new ideas!
Good luck on finals!
