Work is important but family comes first!
When exams are around the corner, children and parents both come under stress. Exhaustive study requirements, improper planning and pressure from parents cause physical and mental problems in children. One should make a timetable and plan the study pattern. Parents should encourage the child and plan for a healthy diet and lifestyle to prevent the stress.
Dos for physical and mental health
Using food made up of whole grains at home with lots of fruits and vegetables is highly recommended. During the exams, stress will be high and a lack of exercise may lead to improper weight gain. The above pattern will help in maintaining health.
According to Ayurveda consumption of ghee with food will help in the nourishment of brain. Dry fruits like almond and walnut etc can be consumed as snacks which will help lubricate the body naturally.
To keep the child hydrated, parents should give fresh fruit juice, green tea, tender coconut, sugarcane juice as well as churned and butter extracted buttermilk. Ayurveda says that the buttermilk helps in digestion and controls excessive heat.
To keep the mind relaxed and to improve concentration, parents should be supportive and they should be relaxed in front of the child.
In between the studies, students should take small breaks of ten minutes or so and involve themselves with some other activities like listening to soothing music, reading something entertaining, dancing or indulging in any other hobbies they have. This activity makes the mind relax and improves concentration.
During evening playing shuttle badminton or some outdoor game will help in staying fit, physically and mentally. The entire family can involve themselves in indoor games like chess, monopoly etc. to build a congenial atmosphere.
Waking up early in the morning can also help in improving the concentration. Ayurveda highly recommends studying during the Brahmi Muhurta during which, the mind is fresh and can absorb the knowledge imparted quickly.
To get good sleep, one can undergo head and body massage once a week and only head massage and bath at least twice a week. Abhyanga or massages can improve both physical and mental health according to Ayurveda.
Don’ts for physical and health
One should reduce junk food, outside foods and deep fried items. Due to stress during exam, the metabolism (digestion and absorption) will not be proper. These foods will lead to indigestion or obesity.
One should not consume soft drinks, carbonated drinks and tea or coffee in excessive quantity.
Putting pressure on the child or always talking about the studies will increase the stress on the child.
Studying for exams should not disturb the sleep; erratic sleep pattern will affect the health. Sitting idle in one place for long duration is not advisable.
These are the few simple tips to follow during exam times. These will help to maintain both physical and mental health as well as keep the child relaxed during the study holidays.

A client who had taken reiki healing for his daughter's board exam stress, writes this of his experience,
” When my daughter was in 10th grade, by Dec my wife and I realised that her focus was not her studies, she was extremely distracted by social media and her friends. She is an intelligent girl, but I think she became a little overconfident of her studies, and decided that she did not work too much for her exams. With 3 months to go for her exams, we got worried and also realised that somewhere she was under exam stress. I read this article on how reiki energy healing helps students during exams, so I approached healclinic whom I found on facebook. Honestly I was not too sure, but after speaking to their counselor, I felt quite confident that they can help. They created a 3 month reiki healing plan for my daughter which covered her study period and her exams period. .
She was given a distant Reiki healing session and my daughter or any of us did not have to sit in one place when Reiki was given. The healer would give her a reiki healing session daily and we were constantly in touch with the healer through whatsapp. Over the next few weeks we found my daughter's focus and discipline coming back. She became relaxed about her exam stress. I am still not sure how reiki healing worked, but those 3 months she studied, and the best part of the healing was that any other issues that my daughter had whether not feeling well, or being disturbed by some emotion was taken care of.
Based on my experience, I went back to healclinic in her 11th and 12th grades too and was not disappointed. I am extremely happy with the results, and recently I myself got attuned to reiki level 1 and 2 through healclinic. The reason I like healclinic was that they have healers who do different healing and depending on what I needed they created the plan accordingly.”
