Deep Breathing Exercise and Technique

It is normal for students to get tensed and stressed during an examination or test, or even when rushing assignment or project. Even though there are many factors causing the stress, there are also ways to counter the stress and reclaim your calmness.

Crucial Tips to Reduce Stress

  • Get ample sleep
    Get over it. Man needs enough rest. Nobody can work endlessly without taking enough rest to maintain his high efficiency in work.
  • Sleep early
    Your body replenishes itself at night. As scientifically proven, for a normal human being, different parts of his body heal themselves at different hours in the night. You need the recuperation in order to work your body better.
  • Follow a regular sleeping hour
    Even if you have enough sleep, it will be tedious for your body to adjust the timing properly. This is usually known as "body clock".
  • Set practical goals that are significant to you
    Without a goal, you will be aimless and may tend to lose track. Start setting a goal and focus on it.

Below is a common deep breathing exercise that you can practice to help yourself to remain calm and focus better during stress period, be it while rushing your assignment or when you are sitting in the examination hall.

Tutor Michelle prepared our daughter successfully for her 'O' Level Examination within a very short period of time. We did not expect her to be able to get into a Junior College with her usual results. We were very pleasantly surprised and thoroughly satisfied with Smart Tuition's Tutor recommendation and would strongly recommend Smart Tuition to all other smart parents. - Mr and Mrs Tan
