As per science, a little stress for the exam can be good for you around the exam time. But if the stress level increases with time then definitely it is not at all good for you as well as for your health. Stress should be avoided strictly as it has a direct negative impact on your study. While preparing for the board exam of CBSE or ICSE or other boards including state boards, students have to complete the whole syllabus before the exam starts. And students with high achievement goals generally stress about the exam and it is an unavoidable part of any student’s life. Don’t forget that stress exists for a reason and you can choose to let it be the reason for your downfall or you can use it to drive you to improve your work. The reasons behind the stress might be the competition among the classmates, lack of preparation and planning, high expectation from others or lack of motivation. But the stress level can be encountered in many ways effectively.
Here are some easy and cool ways to beat exam stress easily forever:
- Exercise and Eat Well: Studies have shown that physical activity reduces stress to some extent. You must be thinking how is it possible to take out some time for daily exercise in between the preparation for the exam, but it is really effective and it is advised to exercise daily to fresh your mind. Exercising also gives you energy to do the extra task! You should also maintain a proper healthy diet in order to keep yourself healthy so that you don’t fall sick during the exam time.
- Take Small Breaks: If you sit and study for long hours then it is not going to benefit you rather it will cause stress and you will lose concentration. Hence, it is advised to take small snacks breaks or take a small break and take a brisk walk for 10 to 15 minutes. Hence, you will feel fresh and your mind will be relaxed to study for next 1 hour or so with full concentration. It is better to study 1 hour with full concentration rather than studying continuously for 4 hours without concentrating on the subject.
- Plan Your Study Routine: Sometimes students are stressed because they are unable to finish the complete syllabus before the exam begins. But this big problem can be solved with an easy method i.e. by religiously following a study strategy. If you follow a routine for some days that turns into your habit and thus, in the long run, it becomes helpful for you. You should make a strategy and learn according to it, so that you can finish the syllabus on time. This will allow you to get extra time for revision before the exam. Hence, learning complicated topics like thermodynamics, ohm’s law, relativity and etc will become easy for you to learn.
- Don’t Stick to One place For a Long time: A change in the place of study helps. Try to find a few different study spots that you feel comfortable and productive in. The more bored or distracted you are by your environment, the harder it is to focus on your books.
Being positive helps you to focus more, so, stay positive and study well. All the best for your exam preparation and perform well.
