Improving your memory and concentration for better exam results

Study Stress and AnxietyWhether you have a child in primary school or high school, or you’re studying at university or TAFE, most students, regardless of age, face a number of common challenges. How do you juggle day-to-day activities and yet still find time to study for exams without being too stressed? Stress can make it difficult to concentrate and focus and may lead to poor performance during exam periods. Success for stress-less exams and better results can be achieved by following a few simple guidelines.

Life-study balance is important

Don’t let studying for exams take over your life. It’s important to manage your time effectively so you can maintain a healthy life-study balance. Planning and co-ordinating your day-to-day activities that includes some study time will make your life easier, happier and stress free. You can maintain control and still enjoy activities instead of being chained to a desk or textbooks.

Good quality sleep

Getting enough good quality sleep can be a challenge when you have so many things on your mind. School-age children need around 10 to 11 hours sleep each night while adults need around 7 to 9 hours sleep each night. Lack of sleep can affect the way you think, look and feel.

Physical activity keeps you more alert

Daily physical activity helps to clear your head and provides you with a well-earned break from studying. Benefits of physical activity include increased energy levels and reduced stress levels, leaving you feeling fresher and more alert. Physical activity also boosts circulation to your brain, delivering oxygen and nutrients important for healthy brain function.

Healthy food means a healthy mind and body

Making healthy food choices provides you with essential nutrients to keep you in good shape mentally, physically and emotionally while unhealthy food choices can weigh you down. Many parents worry about their children’s eating habits, particularly children who are fussy eaters or those on restricted diets due to allergies or sensitivities, so a children’s multivitamin may provide some peace of mind in these cases. Good healthy food choices include:
  • Protein at each meal or snack
  • Eating small, regular meals throughout the day
  • Avoiding refined or processed foods, preservatives and colourings
  • Consuming at least 5 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit daily
  • Drink around 1.5 – 2 litres water daily (for adults)

Enhanced learning and academic performance with BacoMind

BacoMind® is a clinically trialled extract of Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) and Brahmi has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine as a brain and nerve tonic, specifically used to improve memory, concentration and learning. BacoMind® contains a unique, clinically trialled combination of active constituents, particularly bacoside A, which is responsible for Brahmi’s positive effect on learning and memory recall. BacoMind® has been clinically trialled to support learning and memory, including information retention and recall, in children and adolescents. Brahmi enhances learning, academic performance, improves mental ability and the way you handle stress.

Omega-3’s improve learning and recall

Omega-3’s, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), are ‘good’ fats, essential for your body. DHA is the main structural component of your brain and contributes to improved concentration, learning and recall, although EPA is equally important for brain function. Look for a concentrated, high quality fish oil that utilises ‘best practice’ purification and concentration technologies that remove heavy metals, environmental pollutants and impurities.
