Look after your Brain! - Especially during Revision and exam periods

You have 100,000,000,000 brain cells to look after!

Get plenty of sleep - you won't learn well if you are tired
Drink plenty of water -not coffee of coke! Your brain is mostly made of water and is the hungriest organ in the body
Eat a balanced diet - brain food like fish and vegetables
Don't eat too much chocolate, sugar, foods with e-numbers
Use brain exercises -  find out more
Exercise regularly- helps your mood as well - you wont learn much  if you are feeling stressed, angry or upset
Build lots of variety into your revision - use as many senses as you can - music, pictures, mind mapping
Use the morning for NEW and HARDER revision - your brain is more receptive in the morning
Have regular breaks - every 20 minutes stretch or think about something different
