I didn’t get a chance to send my newsletter yesterday, so this week we’re doing Wednesday’s Tackling Tasks (even though it doesn’t sound as good)!
I just finished the first part of my national licensing exams yesterday! To say these past few weeks have been stressful is an understatement. This week, more than ever, I needed to find ways to be calm
. There were two main strategies I aimed to implement during this time:
Action-based. I scheduled every single hour for my study process the past two weeks. It sounds excessive, but I was able to go through every topic. This calmed me down because I did everything I possibly could to prepare for the exam. No regrets.
Emotion-based. I recognized the stress was coming from within. In general, I was worried about the exam, so I used my Apple Watch to help me meditate for a minute or two. Even though sleep was a luxury this week, I tried to set aside a few days to get a full night of rest.
How do you find ways to be calm in times of stress?
Have a great week!
