    The best way to keep your mind sharp when you're studying is to eat well (and if you need some ideas on that, check the brain food article).

    But, of course, plenty of people do choose to take various supplements to help them cope with their studies.

    How about you - do you ever take anything to help you stay on top of your work?

    Nothing. I just go around streets jogging or do some pushups and crunches, it works just fine for me

    I had a lot of trouble sleeping during my A2 exams so after not managing to get any sleep before a Maths exam, I decided to get some Valerian pills. I don't know to what extent it was the placebo effect but they genuinely seemed to work, I was still stressed but I was managing to get to sleep which was a massive help.

    Only thing I'll be taking to keep me focused is an energy drink/coffee. The caffeine reduces the tiredness and fatigue.

    None of that herbal nonsense, but lots of snacks and de-stress faps.

    You need lot's of oxygen and seeing the world to make you realise how small your problems are.

    Jogging is stressful on the knees and going to the gym is a lot of effort, taking up half the day.

    I reckon a quick blast on the rollerblades is a good solution!

    They were awesome during my A Levels. Definitely helped to "unwind" after a heavy evening's revision when your brain won't let you sleep.

    I don't take anything but it would sure as hell help me if I did. Something like Adderall would help a lot as I struggle to focus during studying but I don't bother taking anything

    I do things to try and relieve stress like exercise & meditation, I've never really thought about pills. I don't think they'd help me.
