The winter semester has started and your sleep pattern is still stuck on holiday mode. Here are 10 Tips to keep you energized and awake while in class.
Ask Questions – Being engaged in class discussions or asking questions will instantly boost your energy and concentration by being involved in what you are learning.
Stay Hydrated – Packing a water bottle filled with cold water can help you stay awake and alert throughout the day. Taking small sips is a quick way to keep refreshed all day long.
Citrus – Eating a mandarin during class will not only give you a quick boost of Vitamin C, but the citrus scent is known to boost your mood instantly.
Take Notes – Taking notes can keep you engaged in class lectures and will keep your mind occupied from being tired.
Move Around – Excuse yourself from class to go out into the hall and move around to get your blood flowing. Sometimes sitting in a chair for two long can cause you to be a lot more tired than expected! Be sure to return back to class so you don’t miss anything!
Workout – Working out regularly before class will automatically boost your energy levels. Be sure to fuel lost energy with a nutritious diet and plenty of fluids.
Whole Foods- Eating a well-balanced diet and skipping refined sugars and starches will help to maintain a balanced energy level throughout the day. Start your day with a protein rich breakfast rather than a sugar packed cereal bar.
