Indore: Beating the stress before Board examinations, students take up various activities instead of digging themselves in a pile of books. Sharing their unique ways, two students Nandini Agrawal and Ishika Sharma talked about various tricks to relax and lead the way to success.
Being top in class and their batch was not easy for them, but Nandini and Ishika knew the trick to beating stress and finding a way to succeed.
Achieve a state of restfulness
‘Dear life, I wish To be always happy and to stay fit, But the sluttish stress screams And it is the wildest of all dreams.’
Relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation and deep breathing activate the body’s relaxation response. Being a social animal, we must have strong and vibrating bonds. The depth of thoughts and the control over the senses elevates the quality of life. Good and magnanimous behavior with the surrounding people is helpful in achieving the state of restfulness that is polar opposite to the stress response. To be productive and healthy, a nutritional and balanced three time meal must be consumed to improve the ability to cope up with the life stressors.
Opportunity to showcase our capabilities, de-stress
Examinations have drifted far from an opportunity to showcase our capabilities and have drowned in the sea of torture and rat race. It seems like students are the sheep of which exam is the shepherd for they are thought to be leading us towards a better, secured and successful life.
Known or unknown, it is a poignant fact that every hour a student commits suicide in our country succumbing to the pressure and stress. It deeply saddens me that we choose to surrender to the stress rather than fight back and conquer it. But just because we don’t combat stress it doesn’t mean we cannot. There are various ways of getting out of stress and see the light of the day.
Exercising and getting outdoors prove to be major boosters in the times of stressful experiences. It is well said that comparison is an act of violence against the self. Never compare your groundwork with someone else’s foundations. And last but not the least, put your verbal ability to its most efficient use and speak to your confidante.
