Don’t go it alone
In 2004, a research paper published in Linguistics and Education saw that revising with peers is an effective study technique as it allows individuals to better absorb their own notes.
Pace yourself through panic
Panicking before, during or even after an exam is common among university students. If you experience it at any point, take six deep breaths, hydrate yourself, and then go back the problem at hand, being sure to break it down into several, manageable chunks.
Believe in yourself and stay positive
- When being constantly faced with new challenges, we often forget to look back at how far we have come and how much we have already achieved. Given that you have prepared well, there should be no reason for you to worry. Therefore, when experiencing a negative thought, try to replace it with a positive one.
- If you keep focusing on the negative aspects of a situation, you will be burdened by mental stress (Thompson & Gaudreau, 2008).
- Instead, try to look at the glass half full, and stay optimistic through tough times.
- Proper time management is one of the most effective stress-relieving techniques (Macan 1990).
- Whether it’s relaxation, work or study, time must be spent wisely.
- Students must be able to design and stick to a timetable.
- The best way to stop procrastinating is to get the most difficult tasks out of the way first.
- Most people procrastinate because they dread the task they’re putting off. Get rid of the dreaded deed, and you’re good to go.
Spend time with friends
- A cup of coffee with family or friends is all you need to bring your stress levels back to normal.
- Stress can also get worse if a person feels lonely. By letting out all your thoughts to someone you trust, you immediately feel a lot better.
Do something you love
- If you feel extremely stressed out, take a break and do something you love.
- Whether it is painting or listening to music, doing something you enjoy can cheer up your mood and distract you from a stressor.
