Let me tell you a quick story before we scroll down to the 5 Tactics to dissolve exam day stress and anxiety.
Maria contact me as she'd recently failed her fitness exam through another provider.
She had done her best she said, making notes in her manual and trawling the internet for more clarity. The ONE thing that stood out for me when we spoke though,
"I didn't know what I need to learn for the exam, the manual is so big, what exactly should I be revising?"
This left Maria with low confidence and come exam day, well...
Restless legs, a churning stomach and gripping the book in her hand so tight that her knuckles turned white as she walked into the exam room.
Her self-talk sent her around in circles, thinking of worst-case scenarios and worrying about everything, replaying the same thought in her head over and over.
