Homeopathy for Exam Stress
Exam times again-at this time of the year I get busy with students who come to me for stress and anxiety related problems associated with exams.
Normally a definite amount of stress and anxiety may push them to excel and achieve best results but sometimes it may extend beyond and add to panic and exam nerves leading to a downward spiral in their academic life.
In time this stress further weakens the immune system making their body more susceptible to other illnesses that can catch their body when least expected and especially during the exams.
While it is natural to get anxiety and stress when the level of preparation is low, sometimes I also see students who feel overwhelmed even though their preparation level is acceptable.
But nevertheless, homeopathy provides suitable remedies for each specific exam need. A personalized consultation with a homeopath is all that you need to discern what prescription will suit your context of exam nerve.
Exam nerves might constitute different meanings to different students. For example, one student might get exam nerves for forgetting all that he studied while other may feel panic and so on.
Thus, there are a range of problems for which they want a solution.
Whether it’s anxiety before or during the exam, inability to focus long hours during exam preparation, dilemma of future, career confusion, stress, fear of failing, overly high expectations from self – homeopathy serves as a natural stress relief for all.
Here is a general outline of what homeopathy can do for you to relieve exam stress in students
- Calming yourself on exam day
- Achieving good health
- Concentration issues
- To raise motivation
Also, I have listed some exam stress management techniques which can go alongside a homeopathic prescription to relieve you of exam stress symptoms
During consultation, we not only look at the outside symptoms, we also see what effect this exam stress is causing on mental and emotional level.Thus a student is able to achieve an overall state of well-being.
Added with homeopathic remedies , there are certain lifestyle , diet , and habit changes I prescribe which boosts up the effect of homeopathic prescription.
So here are the tips I give to students on how to reduce exam fear?
It is very necessary for parents to give their child a healthy and well-balanced diet to make them perform well in exams.
Saturated fats such as coconut oil and cod liver oil serve very well while high fat, high sugar and caffeine items should be avoided.
Also, it is necessary to keep your body hydrated by drinking water at frequent intervals/
Lastly, a healthy diet is incomplete without fresh fruits and vegetables.
A good sleep schedule
Generally, 8-10 hours of sleep is recommended for students as this helps to improve their memory and concentration.
A good sleep helps to let them perform to their full potential during exams.
Though it is difficult to take time out for exercise during exams, even a few minutes of exercise help boost energy levels and relieve stress.
