How Mindfulness Can Help Students Prepare For Exams- San Mateo SAT Prep

SAT Test Tips Portola Valley CAMany students who diligently study for exams still face anxiety, especially when it comes to major exams like the ACT and SAT. Often parents and teachers stress the academic side of preparing for exams, but not the emotional side.

A student that feels calm and confident and is equipped with tools to manage

anxiety is much more likely to do well on an exam than a student who feels overwhelmed when entering

an exam. Mindfulness is a tool that students can use to combat anxiety and calmly tackle any test.

Physical Impact

The Huffington Post cites a study that found mindfulness meditation can physically reduce stress because

it reduces cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that is released when a person feels stress. A healthy

amount of cortisol is good because it helps your body respond appropriately to stress, but high levels of

cortisol over time can cause problems. Mindfulness meditation can help you body respond appropriately

to stress.

A Tool That Stays With You

Mindfulness meditation is also a tool that you can take with you anywhere, even into the exam room. It

can be used to help you focus and avoid stress while you are preparing for the exam, but it can also be

used in the middle of an exam. If you start to feel a loss of focus or control or if you are distracted and

begin telling yourself negative thoughts, mindfulness meditation can help you regain focus and finish the

exam with confidence.

Positive Thinking

Positive thinking and a strong belief that you are good at the subjects you are facing on the exam will help

you perform well. Mindfulness meditation will instill positive thoughts in your mind and help you combat

any negativity that can feed your anxiety as you prepare for exams.

Try It

Mastering the subjects on the exam as well as your anxiety will lead to positive outcomes when you take

the exam. Because mindfulness and meditation are such powerful tools for helping students perform well

on major exams, Mr. Test Prep offers a free mindfulness and meditation class once a week. Try

mindfulness and meditation to develop the calm inner voice you need to keep anxiety and stress at bay

when you are preparing for and taking significant exams like the ACT and SAT.
