Test taking anxiety can be unpleasant, but it can also hinder test performance. The authors at PSYCOM explain that: “your body releases adrenaline, and the energy used to do good thinking gets diverted into being on high alert. Our brains prepare for the worst, and it becomes all too difficult to imagine doing well and to answer questions.”
The reality is that being “in the zone” (calm and collected) isn’t just a gift; its something that can be trained and nurtured.
“In other words, doing mindfulness between the midterm and the final gave students a full letter-grade boost!”
“BOTH mindfulness and CBT had a SIGNIFICANT impact on reducing test taking anxiety for the students.”
“Enjoying the benefits of mindfulness isn’t difficult, nor is it particularly time consuming.”
“Every time you get distracted and focus back on your breath you have done a ‘brain pull-up'”
