Stress Control For Students
- By Tim Lowenstein, Ph.D.
Having been a student and working my way all through the hurdles to a Ph.D., I know the pressures of school's tests, projects and exams can be crushing. To get good grades you need to be relaxed. A good clean and clear mind will imprint into memory what you study and you will be able to recall it clearly and accuartely so that you perform better on exams.
Have you ever been studying and suddenly realize you do not even remember the last 10 pages? Not controlling your mind and drifting off in some day dream or worrying about school, relationships or money is a real problem. It is a waste of your time and energy.
Procrastination.......... let's say that all together. PROCRASTINATION. This is one of the worst habits you can develop as a student. Putting off getting your school work done. Not reading, not doing the problems, not working on the assignments, etc. Simply NOT doing school. Okay you may be a tish lazy but often this is a stress related problem. You are tense and nervous about school and just put off what you have to do. What happens? Bingo, things get worse, you get more tense, your grade suffers. Releasing that tension can help you get the strength to GET YOUR WORK done. No more wasting time avoiding it or worrying about it. You just do it!
Clutching on exams or blanking out is a common problem for students. You leave the test and are walking down the hallway or sidewalk when you remember the correct answer or you realize mistakes you just made on the exam. Argh...... the teacher or professor will NOT give you credit for that! These memory lapses are due to stress and test anxiety. We can teach you scientific methods to relax. These relaxation training exercises have been tested and will effectively help your body to relax, your emotions to calm and your mind to be clear.
You can actually raise your grades by relaxing.
This is a set of 3 audio CDs with a training guide. You learn scientific methods that produce profound physical and mental relaxation. Tighten your fist, hold it tight and then relax all at once. 1. You learn to feel tension 2. Your muscle will relax and release tension. You go through the whole body doing this.
There 6 different scientific methods to relaxation on these audio CDs. Each one builds on the previous one so that you gain more mastery and skill.
Clutching on exams, blanking out, test anxiety, knotted stomach, headaches, lack of concentration and other study and exam related problems will be gone as you learn to release tension, relax and focus your mental state.
I was on the staff of a University Counseling Center when I developed this program. First I helped myself. My grades jumped up one whole level and I studied less because I could relax and concentrate. Learning and memory were easier and too less effort. Then I offered this program to students at the University who found similar success. I had smirky smile knowing that I was studying less and getting better grades. haha
