10 Most Effective Tips to be Stress-Free
Here, with this blog, we brought up just 10 easy ways or applicable methods to reduce some of the exam stress. Not paid anyways, but just natural and basic things to remember could help you a lot to deal with the seemingly invincible exam stress.
10PREPARE AND FOLLOW A TIME TABLE
Having a time table is always considered to be a disciplined lifestyle. Army personnel are not just known for their badges and infantry. But they are well known for their time table first. They are known for their punctuality.
You would never face an Army person complaining about stress as everything is already well-planned and fixed as a time table.
Similarly, a time-table always helps a person who is around a challenge. Whether it is of national boundary, or an examination.
9BE HONEST WITH IT
Building a time-table is not a difficult task. But following it with honesty is.
People very excitedly prepare their long time-table with much precision but realize later that the more precise they were while building it, the more difficult it would be to follow.
Therefore, make sure that you could afford it and not cheat with yourself.
8PICK UP ONE THING AT A TIME
Most of the students have a habit of putting on 2 or 3 notebooks of different subjects in one session and try to read from all. Which is not a good habit as it becomes difficult to memorize everything for a longer span for our mind.
It is always suggested by our elders to pick one thing at once and not to deal with many simultaneously. As it doesn’t get better results in return after focusing on many at once.
7STUDY SMART NOT HARD
Studying hard and studying smart has a difference. Many students try to learn accurately what the textbook has in it. However, it would be smarter to learn and understand the context of the topic but not exactly what has been written over it.
Try to make short notes rather going for longer theories. Try to learn by speaking out loudly. It is believed that our subconscious mind learns what we speak quite easily.
6AVOID PROFANE CONTENT
It is a myth that profane or adult content could get you stress free from all the subjective things of your life.

They bring your stamina to control over your stress down and makes you addicted to such profane content for your whole life ahead.
Now you decide what you want. Temporary relief, permanent addiction or robust stamina to control over stress.
You might get yourself indulged into natural activities like outdoor gaming and exercises.
5GET NATURAL DIET AS A STRESS BOOSTER

As when you get a natural diet and avoid the regular junk, your metabolism and digestion both gets well, which ultimately keeps you relaxed and tension free from having a digestion stress in addition to the exam stress.

And believe it or not, meanwhile exams, it helps a lot in eliminating an additional stress possible due to unhealthy or junk diet.
4AVOID LATE NIGHT SESSIONS
Many students nowadays prefer night sessions to study, which is not ideal and considered as a wrong time to study as well as keeping yourself awake.

Those students, who don’t get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep, would tend to weaken their eyesight and keep their stress with them.
