Anxiety is synonymous in worrying and being stressed in everyday life events such as in studies, work, family or personal problem. It is said to be a normal adaptive and protective biological reaction to stress.  Students frequently have anxiety that affects their academic performance especially during their examination.

It is really difficult to pin point the cause of anxiety but we can help ourselves to reduce our anxiety or stress in our studies. Having yourself ready for schooling is the first way. Avoid being late and it will surely cut your anxiety in half.

Second, once you’re inside your classroom, free up your mind from those things that are not related to your class. Set aside unnecessary thoughts and concentrate on what your professor is saying. Listen attentively and jot down notes and you will definitely forget your anxieties.

Third is to stop worrying or bothering yourself on what is not yet happening. People are often anxious because they think too much about tomorrow. Seize the day as it comes and see to it that you are always giving your best today!
