The No. 1 All-Nighter Helper

An effective, healthy way to heighten your concentration and boost your memory is to take a few breaths of pure oxygen while you study. O+ pure recreational oxygen is a natural alternative to caffeine and other stimulants, so you can feel alert and focused without the dreaded crash or any other detrimental side effects. In fact, research shows that the use of supplemental oxygen increases both immediate and delayed word recall while significantly improving your ability to stay attentive (Moss). Breathe pure oxygen throughout the evening to stay on your A game, and have a few breaths to relax before the test. Got oxygen?

Late Night Studying

What You’ll Need

  • A canister of O+ recreational oxygen, such as the O+ Elevate Pack, to keep you alert and focused when you start to feel tired, and to help improve your memory recall and reduce stress
  • A quiet place to work without distractions, such as the library or bookshop
  • Your books, laptop, paper, pens, highlighters, notecards and other studying supplies
  • Plenty of water to ensure that you’re properly hydrated as your mind works overtime
  • High-protein snacks, such as nuts and yogurt, to keep you full and to deter those junk food cravings that will inevitably slow you down
  • A study-buddy, if possible, to help keep you motivated and on task

What to Avoid

  • Crash-inducing stimulants, such as caffeine or other drugs or alcohol
  • Heavy foods such as carbohydrates, which could cause tiredness
  • Cramming for long periods of time without regular breaks
  • Dark spaces that strain your eyes and may make you feel more tired
