How well do you remember studying all night and cramming at the last moment, getting anxious, developing exam nerves? I remember it well. Does that sound like you too? Looking back in hindsight, it would have been so much better if I had started studying much earlier, rather than leaving it till the last minute. Did you know that Hypnotherapy can be of help with exam nerves and concentration.
Other facts I did not consider when choosing to stay up late to study were; lack of sleep affects mood and causes irritability and anxiety; late nights affect energy levels and reduce ability to focus. Chronic lack of sleep reduces ability to concentrate and learn, which directly affects memory and exam performance. Hypnotherapy can also be of help with insomnia and anxiety.
Here are a number of hints to help with exam nerves and improve study habits.
- Prepare for the exam, study well ahead of time
- Get 8 hours of sleep each night
- Exercise regularly
- Eat balanced meals
- Avoid coffee at night
- Meditate frequently
If all else fails and you continue suffering from bouts of study anxiety, chronic sleep deprivation or insomnia, seek out a good hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy is a brief form of therapy that can help you deal with the nerves of final exams and help you with concentration and to improve your memory.
