Help To Overcome Exam Stress

April 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 182

Competition to get into good schools, colleges and universities seems to be getting more and more fierce these days. Pressure to perform well in exams has risen in a corresponding manner. More pressure inevitably raises the potential occurrence of exam related stress.

Performance anxiety can raise its ugly face in any situation whereby you care about the results. It can just happen when you least expect it, during a driving test, a written exam, an oral exam, an interview, a presentation, and so on. This type of anxiety can be experienced basically in any situation where you are in the spotlight and wish to present yourself at your very best. If you did not care it would not happen.

Anxiety is a natural response that is hard wired into our very beings. The physical manifestations of the anxiety response involve the release of adrenalin and cortisol into our systems. We are poised to fight or flee. In actual fact, there is a point in the anxiety cycle where we are made more alert and better able to perform. It is all too easy however, to go past this point. Too much anxiety has the detrimental effect of interfering with clear thinking and functioning and can in fact freeze these abilities.

Thus to remain calm and focused is vital at times when you want to perform to the best of your ability. Information that you have stored in your long-term memory flows easily into your consciousness when you are in a relaxed and calm state. It does not do so when you are tense and anxious. Anxiety and tension effectively blocks the free flow of knowledge from your long-term memory store. It is there, but you just cannot access it. And the harder you try, the more anxious your get and the bigger the blockage becomes.

Self-hypnosis is a useful skill to be able to perform and it is actually very easy to do. Hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation at one with a state of heightened awareness. With hypnosis you can relax your body and your mind and ensure that your stored knowledge flows freely into your consciousness.

With hypnosis you have access to your subconscious mind. You can make post hypnotic suggestions to ensure that you remain calm and focused before and during exams. Your subconscious mind is the part that acts instinctively and automatically. Thus by using well phrased and targeted post hypnotic suggestions you can ensure that you are optimally placed to perform well in your exams.
