Overcoming Academic Anxiety

Overcoming Academic Anxiety

Do you avoid taking certain classes because they make you nervous?
Do you worry excessively about school, homework and tests?
Do you experience physical symptoms (dizziness, nausea, shortness of breath) when thinking about school?
Do you procrastinate on assignments because you feel overwhelmed?

Anxiety is a common problem on college campuses, with some studies showing 80% of college students experiencing daily stress and interference with their academic progress. Adjustments in your thought patterns, such as reducing negative beliefs/assumptions, can reduce anxiety. Practicing positive study habits, such as using study tools, studying ahead and frequent review can help prevent academic anxiety. Self-care, such as exercise, eating right, and getting enough sleep, are also important strategies in reducing stress and anxiety.
