Thousands of school-going students across the country are going through a period of intense stress as board examinations are about to begin. CBSE recently released the board examinations date sheet for this academic session. In order to complete the syllabus, students often end up studying for long hours at a stretch, which further leads to stress. During exam time, food often takes a back seat. However, to ensure that the mind is functioning well, it is imperative to load up on a well-balanced and healthy diet. At the same time, it is also important to ensure that your kids not skipping their meals and getting enough sound sleep.
Here are 5 foods that can help to combat exam stress. Include them in your diet and boost your mental performance:
1. Pear
An excellent source of essential minerals, pears are also quite rich in vitamin C content. The high antioxidant content could help relax the nerves, further keeping stress at bay.
2. Cherries
According to the book 'Healing Foods' by DK Publishing House, cherries contain melatonin, which is known to help promote sleep. Adding cherries to daily diet would help you manage and regulate sleep-wake cycle, further giving sound sleep.
3. Goji Berries
Goji berries are abundantly rich in essential vitamins and minerals. They contain high amounts of choline, which is used by our liver to produce betaine that is known to relax the nerves.
4. Milk
According to Consultant Nutritionist, Dr. Rupali Datta, "Milk is a good source of vitamin B12, which is good for healthy functioning of our brain and nervous system. It also has tryptophan, which regulates our sleep cycle."
