A lot of you have been asking me how I find time to exercise in the run up to exams, and what things I eat while studying, as well as how I generally balance health with revision - here’s a post that answers these :)
Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries - any berries really
Trail mix (you can buy it or put together your favourite seeds, nuts and dried fruit to make your own)
Smoothies (buy them or make your own)
Greek yoghurt (it’s best when topped with granola and fruit)
Pitta bread and hummus/dips
Rice cakes (topped with whatever you want)
Apple and peanut butter
Nakd bars and Trek bars
Graze - you can order a whole range of health snacks from this website
EXERCISE: I find that if I am very stressed out because of revision and approaching exams I can release and get rid of a lot of that anxiety by exercising - going for a walk, run or cycle. Even if it’s just for a few minutes.
It can be hard to find time when you have a lot of studying to do throughout the day, so I generally exercise first thing in the morning before I do anything else. It helps wake me up and makes me feel good and energised for the day ahead.
I don’t have a gym membership, and a lot of people can’t get one due tot he cost or that there;s no gym near them - here are a few links to youtube videos and ideas of home workouts that require no equipment and are also very quick:
It’s really easy to just do a quick 10 minute workout at home, you could do it in one of your study breaks. I think it’s also good to have prepared your food the day or morning before, or know exactly what you’re going to cook that night - otherwise it can just be a lot easier to go out and get a takeaway. There are loads of quick and healthy recipe ideas on tumblr and buzzfeed etc. a lot of which can be prepared in advance, so you don’t have to spend time cooking during the exam period. You can’t always eat healthy though; so if you want a big piece of chocolate cake then give yourself a big piece of chocolate cake because you deserve it!
