Final Exams are Near… Have no Test-Taking Fear!
- Getting enough sleep, exercise, and healthy food before a test can help keep your mind working at its best.
- Think positive. Reminding yourself of past successes and how hard you’ve prepared can help set a troubled mind at ease.
- Don’t cram. If a big test is approaching, don’t wait until the night before to prepare. Instead, plan to study in advance, and the night before, focus on relaxing and getting some sleep.
- Go natural. Natural remedies can settle jitters, including: Passion flower, a naturally soothing remedy which acts as a safe, effective and non-addictive nerve tonic; Rosemary, well-known as a general tonic and energizer; Gotu Cola, traditionally used as a tonic for the brain and nervous system, supporting circulation to all areas of the body; and Gelsemium, an excellent remedy to support balance especially during times of common nervous anticipation, when there is a tendency to go ‘blank’.
