We often talk about the academic implications of anxiety, affecting our grades and study skills – so lets have a brief look at other health effects.
If you get good grades, you probably heard these words many times: “you are so smart, you don’t even have to try, everything comes to you so easily!” But the truth it – you aren’t just “that smart,” you certainly do have to “try,” and things do not “come easily” at all. Success carries just as much, if not more, hard work, stress and anxiety as struggling does! I can vouch for that myself.
Over two decades of developing award-winning study and stress reduction programs taught us many important lessons about helping people overcome anxiety and improve academic, testing and work success. We’d like to share with you the three we find most important.
