Meditation for Exam Stress


Meditation is the best for coping with exam stress. Meditation is the simplest way through which children can beat exam stress and do well in their exams. Read on to know more about the various meditation techniques which children can practice to cope with exam stress.

One needs to work towards relaxation in order get relief from stress. There are a lot of meditation techniques that can be effective in this regard. They are often referred to as mindful meditation techniques as one needs to practice them regularly in order to obtain the desired benefits.

Exam stress is a part of the student’s life and these days this factor is escalating like never before. It has been observed in a lot of instances that mindful meditation techniques can actually help the kid to cope with the exam period with considerable ease. Given below are a few meditation techniques that can be effective:


Meditation with Breathing

This is a very common and simple technique of meditation that can effectively battle exam stress. Since it is a continuous process, it is easier to focus on the breathing in and the breathing out actions. This way the process of breathing is improved and the body relaxes physically and mentally. One need to be aware of the two actions taking place and in the process the mind calms down and the stress is relieved.


Meditation with Sounds

In this meditation technique, the focus of the student or the child should be on the environmental sounds that are playing around him. It is believed that a quiet environment is ideal for meditation. But if one is following this technique, one need to be in a calm environment that has a sort of soothing sound, say the chirping of the birds, or the gurgling of the waterfall, certain instrumental music or even the ticking of a wall clock. These sounds can be natural as well as from an artificial source. As the child concentrates on the sound, its volume, pitch, frequency and feel, his mind gets more and more focused and the body relaxes.


Meditation with Sensation

This meditation technique is also known as a guided meditation technique. In this meditation technique physical sensation is focused upon. This technique requires professional where the child is guided to focus his attention in a non-judgmental manner on the various sensations running within and outside the body. This technique helps in enhancing the concentration levels and helps the child to maintain his alertness. Apart from relieving exam stress, this can relieve other emotional stresses as well.


Meditation with Taste

It is a known fact that when one is worried or anxious about something there is a tendency to gorge on certain foods, that is, there is a natural craving for food. So if this factor is channelised through meditation, then it can act as an exam stress buster as well. Say if after solving a set of exercise, you have this craving for chocolate or ice-cream.

It is advised that take your favorite chocolate bar or bowl of ice-cream and concentrate on the taste of it very mindfully. Try to enjoy every bite or spoon of it, relish the taste and engage your whole being in acquiring the taste of your chocolate or ice-cream. This activity basically acts as a meditation technique as it relaxes the mind and body and after this welcome break you will feel energised to sit with your next chapter for revision and that too with enhanced alertness.


Meditation with Thoughts

This meditation technique calls for complete mind control. This is not just helpful during the exam months but if regularly practiced can bring great positive changes in the approach towards life as an individual. This should also be practiced under professional guidance where the student is directed to control the thoughts that are usually ravaging through this mind. It all about controlling this stream of consciousness, facing the embedded fears of the mind, fighting with them and letting them go. This is known to counter stress magically.

Meditation is the best for coping with exam stress or any other kind of stress. It is not necessary that children have to mediate for hours. In the beginning children can mediate for 5 minutes and gradually increase 5 minutes during each session. This is the best way to start practicing meditation.
