Exam Fear - Exam Phobia - Tips

Exam Fear - Exam Phobia - Tips
Exam fear or exam phobia or exam anxiety is a performance anxiety. Examinations are almost always stressful. Students rarely know exactly what to expect on the test, and those who suffer from exam fear or exam anxiety can see their grades suffer as a result of this stress. A little anxiety can actually help your performance, but some students become so overwhelmed that they" seize up" and forget what they have studied. Exam anxiety can strike before, during and after a test. Battling this type of performance anxiety can be difficult, but good study habits and learning how to relax can help.

Step 1
Develop good study habits. Proper study habits and preparation are the keys to cutting out exam fear

Step 2
Keep your mind and body healthy by getting enough sleep, eating well and exercising.

Step 3
Meet with your instructor to aid in focusing your study sessions.

Step 4
Practice positive self-talk as you prepare for the test. Create a mantra to help you calm your test anxiety. Repeat a phrase, such as" I just need to do my best" or" I will be prepared for this test"

Step 5
Relax the night before your test. A last-minute review can help you remember facts, but fretting over last-minute studying is likely to cause you more anxiety.

Step 6
Beat the morning rush by waking up early. Give yourself time to eat a nutritious breakfast that won't weigh you down or feel greasy in your stomach.

Step 7
Manage your anxiety with relaxation exercises as you wait for the test to start.

Step 8
Scan the test to find questions that are easy. Answer those test questions to give yourself a confidence boost.

Step 9
Understand that you are not alone and ask for help as necessary. Exam fear is normal.

Step 10
Reward yourself after the test is over. The reward gives you the break you deserve after all of your studying. Treating yourself also helps you stop thinking about the test and analyzing every little mistake you may have made.

Please consult a psychologist for counseling and valuable tips.

Hello doctor I have a four month baby by cesarean can I take alcohol now little bit sometime as my baby take breastfeed.
Avoid alcohol at least till baby is taking your feed i.e. Up to 2 years of baby age.

My son is 3 days old. He was diagnosed with vsd with 9mm hole. The cardiologist said it will be closed as the child grows. If not, then there are medical procedures to help.

M.D.( Pediatrics), DCH
Pediatrician,
Nothing much to worry about, it will be closed by 4-5 yrs of age. You can repeat 2 decho after a year to see its progression and decide accordingly. If you find problem in between you can always see cardiologist.

Ways To Manage Ear Pain In Children!

Ways To Manage Ear Pain In Children!

Physical pain can often be overwhelming especially for children. Ear ache can cause terrible discomfort to children and can give sleepless nights to both children and parents. It is important for new mom and dads to know the basic causes and remedies of an ear ache. That way the little kids can get relief faster. We will help you know more about ear pain in children. Infants and toddlers suffer more, as they can’t express their discomfort. It is crucial to watch out for symptoms like high fever, pulling or tugging ear, white or yellowish discharge coming out of the ear, restlessness, loss of sleep and appetite.

Causes:

  1. The most common cause for ear pain is Acute Otitis Media (AOM) or middle ear infection. Small children are especially vulnerable to this infection. The infection causes fever and pain in children. Infection occurs when the fluid produced, can’t be drained by the Eustachian tube. It happens mostly after a bout of cold in kids. Because of it, the Eustachian tube gets swollen making it difficult for the fluid to flow out.
  2. Tonsillitis or an infection of the tonsils can also lead to an ear ache.
  3. Too much ear wax can also cause pain in the ear.

Soothing Remedies:

  1. In the case of a mild case of infection, certain home remedies can give immediate relief. So before running to the emergency, try a few of these.
  2. A hot or cold compress can give some relief. Get a heating pad or ice bag/ pack for this treatment. Children and even adults benefit from this remedy. However, it is not advisable to use heating pads on babies.
  3. If the child is old enough to sleep with a pillow keep his/her head elevated.
  4. If the pain is too much to bear, over the counter analgesics like acetaminophen or ibuprofen can be given provided the stipulated dose for children and infants are maintained.
  5. If the pain is light, simple distraction method works great among children. They can be engaged with either a storybook, a new toy or some game. Letting them munch on their favourite snack can also help.
  6. Some home remedies recommend putting a few drops of olive oil inside the ear. Though this method does not have any scientific base, it might give relief, however, it is necessary to check with your child’s doctor before applying this.
  7. The most common way to treat this infection is, however, by giving them antibiotics. If the pain persists, visit your child’s doctor, let them examine his/her ears and then if he feels he will prescribe antibiotics.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure:
Says all seasoned parents. Hence know when to be careful to avoid further ear infections. Some point to ponder.

  1. Since ear infections typically start with a common cold, get your child a flu vaccine every year. This will prevent him from catching cold often.
  2. If your child is going to the daycare or school, make sure they do not encourage the sick child to come to school.
  3. Do not let your infant lie down with a bottle before sleeping.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Now she is my twin girls were on October 5, is vomiting of the milk and weight lose so please help me.
This is not vomiting and is called possetting and all newborn babies bing up milk and you need to burp well by placing the baby on your shoulder and tap the back well. Do not bottle feed and give only breast milk till 4 - 6 months.

Dear Lybrate user there can be many factors for your sister's daughter to forgot the learning material. May be because of her low performance in studies she might be getting irritated leading to aggression. It's important to have a word with her in a child friendly way and avoid lecturing. Try to make her learn smaller answers and then make her write back. Divide het learning material in smaller chunks. Make her time table for study, long hours will be difficult for her so give her breaks in between. Try these things. If problem persists please consult a Psychologist and special educator for help. All the best.

Hello. Encysted hydrocoele needs herniotomy. Consult a surgeon and plan for surgery. Cough and cold not related to this condition. Appetizer not required. Consult a paediatrician to check weight and height according to age.
