Finally, students are back at school again and it is not just virtually. With back to school, students are again required to use the full capacity of their brain.
Studying can be such a tedious thing to do especially if paired with pressure in time and difficulty. But, though its hard, there are certain hacks to making it easier at least for our brain and body and one of the most effective one is “Food”.
Yes. No one will argue on this as generations of students can definitely attest that this is the most helpful to keeping awake in late night studying and powering up your brain.
Now, if you want to level up your comfort food game for this school year and not just have the same thing over and over again, we have here a list of the best food/snacks that you can try.
1. Popcorn: Heathy Power Up
Popcorn isn’t just for watching movies, it can also be that loud and munchy snack that will be your buddy through the night. One of its advantages aside from breaking the silence is it being a nutritious snack. Just like oatmeal, popcorn is rich in fiber and vitamins that help improve blood flow to the brain for better memory function.
It can cater to people with different tastes as you can have it as with spicy, sweet, salty and plain. This snack is also the most affordable and in such big volume already. Get your new study buddy at Snack Time located at the Second Level, Mountain Wing!
