Dealing with stress can be challenging at times. And, with a 20-50 percent annual increase in university students seeking care for mental health concerns connected to their education, it’s evident that we’re under greater stress than ever before. So, to assist you to get through the hectic test season, here are seven recommendations.
Setting aside a few minutes each day to practice mindfulness techniques like breathing exercises or UCL’s 10 Minute Mind can help you quiet down your body’s stress reaction and bring your focus back to the present moment. As a result, you will have more time to objectively think through your fears, break free from detrimental thought patterns, prepare for a large number of tests and begin more effective revision.
Pulling all-nighters, surviving on a bad diet, and getting little activity into your day may all exacerbate anxiety symptoms. Make sure you receive 8/9 hours of sleep, adequate slow-release carbohydrates, less coffee and more water, and at least half an hour of exercise every day to help your body work at its best.
Remember that every difficulty typically has a sensible answer, even if you can’t see it at first.
