Does your teen or someone you know, need to write an exam or a test of some sort in the near future?
If so, I wanted to share some tips that can help them improve their results.

I’m sure you’ll agree that the ability to do well in tests has a large part to do with
how well they can remember things. This means their memory needs to be in tip top shape.

And a great memory is partly due to a healthy brain.

Here are 5 simple things to do to improve brain health and sharpen their memory.

1. Proper Nutrition
Look for food that has:

– Lots of leafy greens
– Lots and lots of colours
– Lots of fiber

2. Regular Physical Exercise
One of the reasons exercise helps is your brain requires a lot of blood and oxygen.
Regular exercise helps with that.

3. Mental Stimulation
Here are some things you can try to challenge their brains:
– Suggest they try doing things for a few minutes per day using their opposite hand
– Take them to new places and practice remembering the landmarks
– Get them to socialize
– Have them try  to play a musical instrument or do math in their head

4. Stress Management
Stress causes the release of a hormone called cortisol which has been shown to damage and kill the area of the brain responsible for episodic memory and can cause premature aging.

Walking, yoga and swimming have proven stress-reducing benefits and they can also lower
the symptoms associated with anxiety and depression.

5. Sleep and Mental Rest
Sleep and mental rest boost mental health.

Teenagers who get 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night has been proven to be good decision makers, have a sharper memory and are more focused on their everyday tasks.
