As the blossoms fall from the trees, it’s always a reminder that it is ‘that time of year’ when conversations around the dinner table come around to manage exam performance and stress. Wellteen has put together its top key recommendations to make exam prep easier and the process more manageable in every household in the weeks ahead.
- Eat Well
A healthy diet is always essential but not always a priority for busy teenagers! That’s why Wellteen Him (RRP €13.99) and Wellteen Her (RRP €13.99) were developed – tailored supplements to support the growing nutritional needs and busy lifestyles of teenagers. With Iron and Vitamin C which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, Wellteen includes zinc, iron and iodine which contribute to cognitive function, whilst pantothenic acid contributes to normal mental performance to help support concentration levels when studying. Iron also contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells & haemoglobin and contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body to support cells and organs. It is the ideal food supplement when the diet isn’t on top of their to-do list.
- Get Enough Sleep
A sleep-deprived person cannot focus attention optimally and therefore cannot learn efficiently. In the last 20 years, scientists have found that sleep impacts more than just students’ ability to perform well; it improves their ability to learn, memorise, retain, recall, and use their knowledge to solve problems creatively. Teenagers on average need 8-10 hours of sleep a night.
- Encourage Exercise, Routine and Stability
Time management and balance are critical to developing an effective study timetable and brain breaks. It is important to allocate a designated study space that is both calm and clutter-free and that behaviour follows a consistent pattern when it comes to the study time as well as downtime, whether it’s for exercise, playing a recreational sport, walking around the block, or listening to some calm or enjoyable music.
It is imperative to encourage and support conversation around exam prep, it allows people to understand each other’s expectations while aiding in keeping an eye out for tell-tale signs of stress.
It is also important to demonstrate compassion and support students with genuine praise and encouragement while listening and putting yourself in their shoes.
Wellteen has been developed especially for teenagers aged 13-19 years. Each of its 28 capsules provides a comprehensive range of vitamins, minerals, Co-Q10 and botanical extract, Lycopene, to help support daily nutritional requirements.
