High School Exams This Year?

Added on May 1, 2012

If you have a teenager in your family preparing for the NSW School Certificate or Higher School Certificate exams this year you and they may be feeling some stress or anxiety. When young people feel under pressure to perform well at school, this anxiety is carried home and family members sometimes find themselves bouncing off each other’s stress levels, often making it worse for each other.

Staying Mindful of the situation helps one to keep perspective – there is life after HSC, even when the outcomes are not the desired one. And this clinging to a particular result causes suffering for both the students and their families.

Meditation increases focus & concentration, allowing one to “clear” the brain of clutter. Mindfulness teaches the futility of clinging to outcomes that are not entirely within our own control. After all, consider all the variables that go into a final exam outcome, over which there is no control: e.g. who else is sitting that exam across the state and how prepared they are, what are the cut-off marks for university courses this year.

Clinging to an outcome can cause unnecessary suffering. Rather, relax and do the best you can – and you will certainly do better if you relax, as the relaxed brain is clearer and more focused.

Learning Mindfulness Meditation can help. Four week courses (held each Monday at 4:15pm) are available each month in Double Bay. Click here for more information or email judith@yourmindcoach.com.au
