Ideas for a workshop on exam stress

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Obviously a lot of students suffer from exam stress and I am thinking of running a peer led workshop on keeping calm during exams at my uni, trying to get people to think about how they feel about the exams, why they feel that way and come up with some ways to combat exam stress and keep calm during exams as a group. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Sounds like a cool project and really needed right now as exam stress is such a huge thing.

    We did a workshop last week on anxiety and I thought you might find these resources useful - showing a video and getting people to discuss aspects of it and come up with stress-busting tips that work for them could be a cool idea.

    It's American and some of the self-care ideas are really useful.

    Even 10 minutes of downtime can then make you more productive once you start revising again and of course, getting good rest to recharge could be a topic too so something around good sleep hygiene?
