How Can You Handle Examination Anxiety?

How Can You Handle Examination Anxiety?

The exam season has arrived. Students can be seen immersed in their books and notes. Excitement is in the air and so is anxiety. While the former is a good thing to see, the latter raises concerns in the minds of parents and teachers but the fact is that anxiety before exams is a normal thing. The pressure to perform will make students experience nervousness, which is alright, but only if it is up to a limit. If it reaches an unhealthy level, it needs to be managed. If a student experiences the following symptoms before exams, then the anxiety is unhealthy and it is time for a session with a psychologist.

  1. Excessive sweating
  2. Fast heartbeat
  3. Nausea
  4. Headache
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Difficulty in breathing
  7. Lightheadedness
  8. Dizziness
  9. Dry mouth
  10. Gastrointestinal discomfort

These symptoms are an indication of the student being in the grip of panic and fear. Nevertheless, it can be managed and controlled with the following tips.

  1. Make a study plan for preparation: In some cases, students get anxious because they are not ready with the preparation and days before the exam, they feel at a loss as to how they will answer the questions in the exam. To avoid this, students should make a plan for preparation, devoting adequate time to each topic so that the entire syllabus is covered and their preparation is complete.
  2. Meditate and try breathing techniques: Meditation is a great relaxation technique that soothes the mind and body. Also, taking deep breaths (inhaling and exhaling) for 15 to 20 minutes can go a long way in controlling the symptoms of anxiety. In addition, meditation gives you confidence, removes negative thoughts and also improves your concentration and memory.
  3. Exercise regularly: Getting involved in physical activity before an exam seems like a waste of time to many but it is necessary to avoid tension and stay healthy. So, if sports cannot be indulged into, one should go for exercises such as stretching and aerobics as they relax the tensed muscles and keep fatigue at bay.
  4. Eat green vegetables and light food: Eating healthy is also important during exam preparation. If one skips meals or takes recourse to fast foods, it makes anxiety worse. In fact, junk food makes one drowsy. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables are light and easy to digest. They also provide complete nutrition and ensure the sustained release of energy during the study sessions.
  5. Sleep well: Many students compromise on sleep thinking it would help in studies but lack of sleep leads to poor focus and concentration which further affects the studies. It also makes one irritable and drowsy. So, one should make sure that one is getting 6 hours of sleep every day.

Exam anxiety is not an uncommon phenomenon. In fact, it is said that a small amount of anxiety is a good thing as it motivates one to perform better. It leads to nervous energy which keeps one alert but the moment it gets out of hand, it is a cause for concern. So, one must seek help if one is experiencing the anxiety symptoms and follow the above-mentioned tips. It will surely help a student.

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

Hi, you must be feeling uninterested in daily routine, also frustrated about the fact that something is not alright! you have mentioned that you are under depression for past two days and are on medications since but not seeing any change. Well, you will have to give sometime for the medicine show some effect. So be patient and meanwhile you can do other activities to feel better like spend some time with close friends, go for movie, watch comedy serials, pursue some hobby, go for walk, do exercise, eat balanced food, listen to music, keep yourself engaged in some activity. Have fixed timings for meals and sleep. Sleep n wake up at same time irrespective of whether you get sleep or not. It's also important to look for the reasons for your depression. I hope your doctor has referred you to a counsellor to unburden yourself off your pain and issues. If you aren't seeing any counselor then do so asap. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Negative thoughts will be part of life. You cannot stop them completely. But you can always conclude logically and counter negative thoughts. Your attitude should be positive enough to have logical conclusions. I suggest online counseling. Take care.

I am nilesh and 29 years old I work in software company and I am feeling stressed in office while doing work.
Hi lybrate-user, Stress and tension has become common among software professional due to many reason like workaholic, continuous work pressure, no breaks, no relaxation. I wanted you to take break at least a day or two in a month and fully relaxing with family, movie or drive to a favourite place. Take a break once in three months at least for a week go outstation or wherever you prefer and enjoy. In the office take 5 to 10 minutes break and relax yourself. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Take care. Be cool. With regards,

A cod depression person can take medicine life time or some years? Is it 100% curable disease?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

A cod depression person can take medicine life time or some years? Is it 100% curable disease?
Depression is curable but you must combine medication with counseling. You must be consistent and cooperative for anything to work. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

My sister age is 20 and her IQ level is 65is there any treatment for her to increase her IQ to 90.

I think the answer you definitely will get is that that is impossible. I have had success in raising one child's IQ in an institutional setting. If people are committed, it is possible especially with individual care.
