Tapping to reduce exam anxietyFeb 23, 2022
So you've got an exam coming up and you're starting to feel a bit anxious! (Tapping starts at 2mins 20 secs)
Perhaps your heart is beating faster, your neck and shoulders are tense, your tummy has butterflies in it.. all typical fight or flight responses to stress. got you covered. Watch the video and tap along so your stress is reduced and your brain can work optimally!
When we're feeling stressed like this, our fight or flight response kicks in and it really isn't conducive to concentrating and optimal cognitive function as all our blood is being pumped extra hard to our arms and legs to get ready to run! In doing this, it's taken away from our frontal cortex in our brain which is the last thing we want at this critical hour.
A certain amount of excitement is great. We want some heightened awareness, to be able to focus and not get distracted, write faster, efficient decision making.. all the things to get us through the exam and make the most of all the work we have put in.
The aim of this video is to help you do just this so find a spot where you won't be disturbed for the next 10 minutes or so and tap along. Feel free to rewind the video as many times as you like to really notice the difference.
If you would like to take the tapping further and really specific for you please get in touch to find out more about 1:1 sessions and if they may help.
In the meantime, good luck in your exam!
