Here's how you can avoid exam stress

Wish to stay cool, stress-free and focused during the study year? Use these tips to stay cool as a cucumber...

For a healthy mind  

Plan smart eating plans

Exam times mean long sessions of inertia that may cause constipation. Also, your mind gets dull due to minimal exercise. Make sure you drink at least 1.5 litres of water every day to avoid both. 

Eat fresh fruits to keep your mind working. Fruits are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to stay healthy and sharp. Vitamin C helps you avoid a cold. You can also have dry fruits in limited quantities. 

No heavy curries. In this weather, the propensity to eat comfort food is high, but avoid it.

Keep your memory sharp with proteins like cottage cheese, lean meat (chicken/fish). 

Try bhel puri, chicken or paneer kathi rolls or tikka, chicken tikka, soups, bowl of fruit, idlis. 

(Tips by Dr Parul Khurana, Nutritionist/Dietician, SCI International Hospital, Delhi)

For a healthy body

Get some fresh air and exercise. 

Ensure that you eat a substantial breakfast, which will keep you energised right through the morning. Store some healthy snacks for midday cravings. A tasty and nutritionally balanced lunch will help you tackle afternoon lethargy.  

It’s really important to ensure that children take regular breaks when studying – light exercise like walking is great for de-stressing and re-energising.

Allot 10 to 15 minutes for jogging or walking. It’s a great way to de-stress and concentrate better.  

If you are watching television, grab a skipping rope and skip or engage in 

some on-the-spot jogging or floor exercises. 

Breathing exercises and power naps go a long way in beating stress. And just in case you get panic attacks on the exam days, breathing exercises are a must. 

(Tips by Nick Orton, CEO & Founder, BodyPower) 

For a Healthy Soul

Say no to the stress and  anxiety of exams. 

Try to follow a structured routine with focused hard work interspersed with short periods to relax. 

Get adequate sleep (6-8 hrs) and have balanced meals. 

Avoid negative comparisons with others. Remember that you are your own competitor.  

Always strategise on how you want to prepare for the exams. It streamlines the entire preparation process.  

Revise as much as you can and put in your best without thinking about the results. 

Avoid clutter while studying to avoid distraction and confusion. 

Try to make short notes and focus on one chapter at a time. Check sample papers and question papers of the last few years to get an understanding of the pattern. 

(Tips from Dr Sameer Malhotra, Director, Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, Max Hospitals)
