Exam study…it’s exam time again for VCE students, university students and high schoolers. As a chiropractor who has done 5 plus years of university study and copious number of exams, Dr Shaun from Cranbourne Chiropractic Centre has a wealth of knowledge on studying. Here are 5 simple tips to keep you in tip top shape during the exam period.
A few simple tips to get you through:
1. Stay active. Break up your study with a bit of exercise. Go for a walk, a quick run or dance around the house (not recommended if studying in the library)
2. Good posture. Maintain good posture to help relieve tension that builds up. A firm seat with good lumbar support or a small cushion. Feet slightly raised off the ground on a small box/platform and your desk slightly angled up towards you.
3. Keep your spine aligned. Keeping your spine and nervous system functioning well is key. A chiropractic adjustment may help sort out some tension you are feeling. A good functioning nervous system may keep you sharp during study and exams.
4. Regular breaks. 40-45 minutes of study is ideal with a 10-15 minute break. It will keep you focused and more efficient with your study.
