Exams are just around the corner and I am guessing the stress has already got to you. With exams comes excessive stress for most of us and many people are not sure how to deal with it. Today I will be providing you with 4 helpful tips that will help you get through exams with minimum stress.
During exams, people tend to stop eating. They stay away from food because they are so caught up in studying and stressing over the exam. That is the worst thing you can do to yourself during exam time. Eat on time and eat regularly. Have tons of vegetables and fruits to keep yourself refreshed. Don’t forget to drink water to keep yourself hydrated.
Just because you have to study does not mean that you forget about your exercise. Studies show that physical activity de-stresses the mind greatly. While you study, take breaks and go for a walk or do a few jumping jacks every 30 min. Studies show that exercising while revising notes will help you remember your notes better during the exam. Keep your blood flowing and yourself moving.
I know that we have all pulled an all-nighter to study for an exam. You may have gotten your studying done but I can guarantee that your exam did not go as well as you expected it to go after studying all night. It is just not worth it! Start studying before hand and go to bed at around 9 or 10 the night before the exam in order to get up early and feel refreshed and awake for your exam. Sleeping well will help you remember what you studied and overall will get you a better exam result than you would get by pulling an all- nighter.
Overthinking is a problem that most of us have. Exams are on our mind 24/7. This is something we are all guilty of and it may not seem harmful but in reality, it is extremely detrimental to your health. It causes tension and stress and this can result in you not sleeping, eating, or exercising properly. Stay relaxed and do not think about your exams all the time. Go on with your everyday routine but still make sure to study.
Hopefully, these tips are of some use to you. I am someone who does not follow any of these tips at all during exams. This year though I hope to change that and successfully study for exams with minimum stress.
