Cramming for Exams?! Why not Cram in Some Water too!

09 May 2017 14:36

Forget tutors and brain-boosting vitamins, the key to exam success could be as simple as a glass of water.

The good weather is finally here, and it’s important that, while enjoying the sunshine, that we all stay hydrated. Drinking a little more water every day really can have positive results!

With exams approaching, concentration and motivation may be falling but it’s important to stay hydrated.  Water helps to increase concentration and improve memory. It also reduces the risk of cramps and tiredness, helps with healthy skin, bones, hair and nails as well as providing extra energy.

NI Water’s Outreach and Learning Officer Anna Killen comments, “One of NI Water's initiatives is 'Water for Health' which is aimed at raising awareness of the importance of drinking water as part of a healthy lifestyle.

“NI Water is keen to encourage young children to drink plenty of water especially during exam time when they can often be tired from studying.  Even slight dehydration can cause feelings of tiredness and reduced alertness, which will affect a child's interest in being active, therefore impacting on their overall wellbeing.”

Water is a basic nutrient of the body and is essential for survival.  It is essential to keep your body well hydrated, flush toxins from your system whilst retaining vital vitamins and minerals.  Water forms a major part of our blood (approximately 82%), lubricates joints, eyes, aids digestion and helps you look better by keeping skin smooth.

NI Water's aim is to raise awareness in the value of high quality tap water and the associated health benefits from drinking tap water.  The 'Water for Health' initiative encourages you to keep hydrated by drinking the recommended daily amount of water.
