Tips for gaining perspective
- Try a mini meditation. Breathe in deeply, count to five, and exhale slowly. Watch your lower abdomen expand and deflate. Repeat five times.
- Don’t try to be perfect: remind yourself that your best is something to be proud of.
Tips to help you manage stress
Engage in positive self-talk to help build self-confidence.
If you’re experiencing exam-related stress or anxiety, remind yourself that the exam period has an end date and it will be over soon.
Tips for eating well
Eat a breakfast high in protein and fibre within two hours of waking up to jump start your metabolism.
Eat a snack or small meal that includes protein, veggies or fruit, and a complex carbohydrate every three-to-four hours while awake.
Tips for getting active
Find 10-minute workout breaks
Getting active doesn’t require hours in the gym. Take a break between classes and walk to the coffee shop that’s furthest away, take the long way to your next class, or go for a quick evening run (always stick to well-lit and safe routes).
Join a recreation-focused AMS Club
Get active with others. Join a recreation-focused club like the Badminton Club, the Dance Club, the Sailing Club, or the Ultimate Club, among many others.
