Worried about Exams?

Are you prepared for the mock exams?

The mock exams are just around the corner, doesn’t time fly! This can be stressful and worrying for some of you. There are some things that you can do to help you feel more prepared. Having a study plan is important; start today if you haven’t already got one in place. Building in time for exercise would also help. This can be as simple as doing some jumping jacks or getting out for a fresh air walk.

Good sleep hygiene is crucial. Aim to go to bed and get up in the morning at the same time each day. Give yourself some space from your phone and from study for up to an hour before going to bed. A simple way to help you get a good night’s sleep is to turn off notifications on your phone when you go to bed, allowing freedom from interruptions. Dehydration can affect your sleep so make sure you drink water regularly throughout the day. Rescue Remedy is ideal to take at times like this, especially Rescue Remedy Night if you can’t switch off. It works to calm the mind and aids relaxation to help you get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer. You can choose from Rescue Remedy Night Melts which literally melt on your tongue, there is a spray version or drops that you can add to water. The main difference between the Rescue Night products and Rescue Remedy is that there is White Chestnut added to the Night range. White Chestnut is the flower remedy to help switch off unwanted thoughts that keep going around in your head.

Fuel your brain for exam success

A healthy diet is essential and you need fuel for your brain now more than ever. Aim to have three meals per day. I know that some of you don't like breakfast or you don't get up in time to have any but I think it is a crucial that you start your day with some fuel. Keep your energy and blood sugar balanced by having healthy snacks throughout the day. Fruit, nuts, yoghurt are ideal snacks. Reduce caffeinated drinks and coffee, fizzy drinks, sugar, and highly processed foods. Drink plenty of water. If you don’t eat oily fish a couple of times a week, get started on Omega 3 Fish Oils, like Eskimo Omega 3, to nourish and feed your brain. While your studying have some healthy snacks to hand while you study to support your brain. A bowl of nuts to nibble on or a few squares of dark chocolate, or even a cracker with some nut butter would be ideal.

Find your balance with Rescue Remedy

If you are feeling anxious or stressed, tools to help include burning relaxing essential or incense. Lavender would be a great choice. Meditation is a great way to calm the mind, apps like Head Space can help. For focus, my son was telling me about an app called Forest. He said he is finding it beneficial to help keep him focussed on a given task so that he is not jumping between. I think it might be one I could benefit from, so I will give it a try to see how I get on.

Herbal teas like Salus Lemon Balm, Pukka Tulsi Clarity, or Yogi Ashwagandha Balance are just some of the teas that you could consider to help aid relaxation.

Rescue Remedy is my go-to remedy to aid relaxation during these stressful times to help you find your balance. You can choose from drops which you can add to drinks, spray, or pastilles. Rescue Remedy has worked well for me over the years and I know many people who it has helped. It is worth a try if you are feeling edgy, anxious, or stressed about your exams. This is just one of many things that can help.

Remember, if you are feeling anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed talk to someone about it. There will be somebody who can help.
