What are some ways to reduce school-induced anxiety?
Plan ahead by creating a study schedule that will prevent having to cram closer to the test/due date. Take breaks when you feel saturated! The brain is much better at processing and retaining information if the information is delivered in chunks at a time. Keep a positive attitude! Approaching a task while nervous, anxious, or fearful blocks the brain's ability to process and retain information. Make studying more fun by creating stories about the material you need to learn! Personifying molecules, bacteria, structures, etc., can make the material much more entertaining and retainable.
