Red Bull is an energy drink like many other brands. My suggestion is don't go for it as a solution to extend your waking hours. sah maybe right about safety of "moderate" consumption of Red Bull (energy drinks) but who knows about the tolerance level of Canadians
To scare a bit of you all who love Red Bull or other caffeinated energy drinks.
Red Bull in suspected link to deaths
Quote: The three healthy young people who died are all thought to have drunk Red Bull shortly before their deaths.
Quote: Australian Matthew Penbross’s heart stopped after consuming 8 Red Bulls within 5 hours. Fortunately ambulance officers (paramedics) were able to revive him with a defibrillator.
Penbross (aged 28) was in good health, with no history of heart disease, and regularly consumed 4 Red Bulls per day.
On the contrary, sleep is very important. You need to take your full 8 to 9 hours sleep.
Here is what London School of Economics Students' Union says about exam's preparation.
Another medical article about importance of sleep and exams:
What you should eat? Eat healthy food. Sandwiches are much better than crisps. Avoid indulging large amount of deep fried food. Eat vegetables and meat sandwiches. Almonds are good, there is something in them that's why our grandmothers use to say to eat almonds by soaking them overnight. Do take your normal dosage of milk too. Proteins are your friends, you may try taking a protein shake daily. In short, eat healthier food.
Try to reduce your stress. Everybody has his own way to reduce stress. 5 minutes of a song or 5 minutes in pray or 5 minutes walk/exercise to take stress out of your mind and restart your studies with a fresh and calm mind. In my experience stress is a major thing before and during exams, mainly because of other people's expectations from you. Keep a positive attitude about exams.
Good luck with your preparations
