Brain hydration

Your brain is made up of 75% water. Your body needs between 1.5 and 2 litres of water every day to be fully hydrated. That’s your basic level of hydration so if you’re very active during the day or exercise and sweat, you need more. Brain dehydration causes tiredness and lack of focus so if you find yourself struggling to concentrate, increase your water intake. Learn more about essential brain nutrition for study success in this blog post.


Keep a thoughts jotter

If you get distracted by worrying or anxious thoughts while you’re trying to focus on studying, keep some blank paper or a notepad next to you. As the distracting thoughts pop into your head, write them down. Putting them onto paper gets them out of your head so your brain can focus on completing your study tasks. Keep a separate notebook just for this purpose if you experience this regularly.
