Acting assessment

Tomorrow i have my AS level drama assessment and that means I will be rehearsal all day. Does anyone have any tips for keeping your energy up all day as my role is very tireing? (Sorry for any spelling mistakes, my spelling isn't the best)

I know this is a little late, but a B vitamin supplement can really help for future days like this. Be sure you aren't too susceptible to the "niacin flush" (Niacin, a form of vitamin B, can make some people flush and tingle to varying degrees of severity. "Flush-free" niacin is available, though!) Your body actually does use that for energy, and you don't crash as hard as with sugar or coffee. Another trick with coffee is to sprinkle some cinnamon in- cinnamon naturally helps to regulate your blood sugar, so your caffeine crash is less dramatic. It's not a total cure, but it can be helpful. Other than that, sleep and eat healthy, protein and veggie filled food! (I sound so terribly cheesy.) And try and keep your brain engaged without overstressing yourself, which burns more energy than you need to.

Niacin is about detoxing and they have turned back to nature with more natural forms that absorb (Brown rice). But Coffee control with cinnimon isn't true THATS SUGAR CONTROL NOT CAFFIENE control. Don't drink Coffee it's basically legal Cocaine. Instead drink Yerba Mate like the South Americas tribes have been doing for peace gatherings for thousands of years. Yerba Mate is basically a superfood TEA! • Vitamins: A, C, E, B1, B2, Niacin (B3), B5, B Complex • Minerals: Calcium, Manganese, Iron, Selenium, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Zinc • Additional Compounds: Carotene, Fatty Acids, Chlorophyll, Flavonols, Polyphenols, Inositol, Trace Minerals, Antioxidants, Tannins, Pantothenic Acid and 15 Amino Acids. • Theophylline, theobromine (like chocolate), and caffeine (3x less than coffee). Other than that any jungle fruit Whole and raw or juiced will give you energy. Bananas, mango, grape fruit or even outmeal. Us good health common-sense involving ONLY natural with NO side effects.

B12 tabs under the tongue work. Drink WATER - the first sign of dehydration is often fatigue rather than thirst. Power nap when you can.

Stay focused and in character. Limit gabbing with other actors and crew to a minimum. Any down time use to meditate.

So your AS level drama assessment was a few days ago. How did it go? did you manage to keep your energy up?

I got 39/50 which I think is really good as my accent wasn't at the same level all the way through
