Stress Coping

  • Concentrate: Stay focused on what you're doing. Worry and fear are future projections and need not become part of your present task.
  • Use Affirmations: "I feel relaxed and confident. I will recall all that I need to know during my test."
  • Visualize: See your tasks completed the way you want them to be actually completed. Imagine yourself a good test taker. Feel what it's like to be successful.
  • Breathe: Take several deep breaths to calm the body and bring oxygen to the brain.
  • Exercise and stretch to keep the body healthy and to change the focus of the mind.
  • Eat well-balanced meals . Have fruit instead of candy.
  • Talk to a friend, advisor, or family member.
  • Write down your concerns. Talking to people or writing thoughts down helps to objectify them. Once you see the nature of a problem, it's much easier to handle.
  • Do something fun!
