Take control of those test nerves


Whether you’re taking an academic exam or a physical test, we all know nerves can get in the way.

Your nerves may not get the better of you but if you do feel a little nervous before or in the test, take control.

First, grade the anxiety; perhaps 10 being the most nervous and 1 being the most relaxed.

Ask yourself: What number of nervousness am I on at the moment? It might be, say, a 7 – a bit too high for a test. As you slow your breathing and focus on breathing out a little longer than you breathe in, you’ll notice your body starting to relax (the body always relaxes when you extend your out-breath). Now ‘watch’ in your mind’s eye as that 7 (or whatever the starting number) starts to drift down to a 6, then a 5, 4, and down to a 3, then 2.

Any time you feel a little too tense in the test, just repeat this process (but I bet you won’t need to).


Wishing you every success!


Enjoy Ice Dance
