TUESDAY'S FIVE WAYS TO "DE-STRESS PRE-TEST":

April 10, 2018

 

1. CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE: Run/walk/elliptical/swim/row/whatever: 30 minutes + cardiovascular exercise stabilizes mood and produces endorphins.

 

2. TAKE A YOGA CLASS: It strengthens and relaxes the body, occupies the mind with focus and meditation, and soothes both.

 

3. TAKE A WARM SHOWER OR BATH: (maybe slightly longer than usual) to improve circulation and calms the nervous system.

 

4. DO A VISUOSPATIAL TASK: Hold a fidget spinner or stress ball--is a proven distraction in stressful situations. (Think prayer beads) Just don’t bring it into the testing room!

 

5. FOCUS ON POSTURE: Stand with breastbone up, relax facial muscles, and avoid teeth grinding to actually enhance confidence and positive energy.
