Studying for Exams

by Eugene Y. Chan, MD

The rigors of academics can take a toll on the mind and focus.  What to do when you have stayed up for that all night cram session?  There are a few ways that you can clear your mind:

  • Avoid caffeine, this tends to last only for a short period of time and then the crash will come and you will feel more tired than before you took it.
  • Avoid foods with excess carbohydrates or refined sugar.  These high glycemic index foods lead to significant swings in your mental state.  The insulin response from these foods can also cause reactive low sugar levels that can cause drowsiness.  Instead, reach for something else like nuts which stabilize your sugar levels better.
  • Go work out.  There is no better way to keep up mental fitness by exercising your body.  Sound mind and body.  There is no exaggerating here.
  • Take a supplement that helps you recover and maintain focus.  On this end, you should try to find something that works on entire metabolic pathways (like CLAREX or a like product).  You have to find what works for you and sometimes trying out a few may work well for you.  Regardless of the product, you should look for something that is stimulant-free and does not act on your neuroreceptors like caffeine.

Be well and stay focused.
