Focus on the Finals: Fueling College Finals Week

collegecaremd1It’s that time of year where the semester is winding down for college kids. College finals week usually starts right after Thanksgiving. College kids go from taking a few days off, eating turkey and enjoying family/friends  to hitting the books when they get back from Thanksgiving break.

After all the heavy food, treats, pies and desserts your college student ingested during Thanksgiving break, why not give them the gift of some brain food for college finals week? Here at Orange Ring, we have put together a fruit box called “Focus on the Finals Fruit Box” which contains healthy citrus to help them study. Research has shown that smelling citrus can help reduce stress.

Prevention.com states, “Those who sniffed orange oil were less anxious throughout the test, and the beneficial effects even lingered once the exam was over.” The article also states: “The scent of a fresh fruit can do amazing things,” says Barbara Thomley, lead coordinator for the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at the Mayo Clinic. “From what we’ve seen with our patients, even a quick smell can make a major difference.”

The Focus on Finals Fruit Box is filled with healthy citrus to send to your college student. Easy to peel Sol Zest Mandarins and our best of season Florida Oranges. We have also included a chocolate gator and a squeeze n sip to drink their sweet juice. Keep them healthy during exam week with some healthy brain food they need to help them get through college exam week. Inhaling a little Florida sunshine will brighten up their day and reduce their stress. Click here to order your Focus on the Finals Fruit box now.
