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

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.
