Rev up for Revision
If your children and teens are about to embark on exam revision, chances are stress levels in the household are rising. Whether you’re worried that they’re unprepared or they’re fretting because they simply don’t know where to start, the run up to exams and coursework preparation can be massively stressful for pupils and parents alike.
New research has revealed that 90 per cent of parents aren’t sure how long their children should spend revising. Guidelines actually recommend that revision is done in 30 to 45 minute blocks with a ten minute break in between.
So what can you do to help? It’s important to take regular breaks, get enough sleep and try to maintain a healthy diet. A healthy balanced diet should include plenty of Omega-3 and oily fish, like sardines and mackerel is a great source. For those kids whose brains tell them they don’t like oily fish a great alternative is Equazen eye q, a food supplement packed with naturally sourced fish oil high in Omega-3 EPA.
From capsules, strawberry flavoured chews or fruity flavoured liquids there’s a format and flavour to suit all. Available from most Boots and Tesco stores.
Equazen eye q is dedicated to making sure your child gets the best support during this stressful time so is giving you the chance to win £150 of WHSmith vouchers – the perfect aide to exam success.
