Stressed out students: if you’re in the midst of winter mid-term and SAT preps, there’s a simple thing you can do that can help relieve your anxiety and improve your test scores.
Teenagers are often most stressed when it comes to the “big” test. New research has found that when students spend 10 minutes writing about their fears just before a test, their scores improved. Researchers say that “expressive writing” about an anxiety filled event is an effective way to channel worrying about the actual experience. It seems that letting it all out by just writing about your feelings can help relieve your stress and boost performance.
