He should also prepare himself by saying “I can do it, I will succeed, this is an important test, but it is not the end of the world” etc. Attention should be paid to nutrition and sleep patterns because we are concerned about the disruption of the circadian rhythm, which is responsible for the synthesis of various hormones such as melatonin, growth hormone, cortisol, neurotransmitter, which affects many of our systems and hormones. increases.
Three techniques you can do yourself to deal with Exam Stress;
