10 Stress-Busting Tips while Preparing for NEET 2016

Stress is powerful, so powerful that it can lead to undesirable long-term effects on the human body. Each time you visit a doctor, they are sure to tell you- take it easy. However, every person on earth is stressed about something or the other. For adults it could be multiple things, but for kids, exams and classroom tests can also prove stressful. Life-changing medical entrance exams like National Eligibility cum Entrance Test- NEET 2016 (MBBS and BDS) can cause immense stress. But there are simple tips that can help you cope with this pressure.

NEET Phase 2 2016 will be conducted on 24th July 2016 by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

10 stress-busting tips while preparing for NEET 2016




  1. Meditate: It is good to meditate when one is feeling stressed and low. Research suggests that meditation brings peace and eliminates negativity, leaving you feeling fresh and happy. A stressed mind will neither help you in learning nor memorizing.
  2. Meet Friends: I don’t think anybody will ever say no to this. Meeting people you like and have fun with elevates your mood. A good conversation and sharing laughter is a boost to health anyways. Take a break and meet your closies. You may also study with them. Give them a ring and call them over.
  3. Yoga: Just like meditation, Yoga is helpful for the mind, body and soul. It can instantly make you feel good about all things around you. It is extremely beneficial especially if one continues to practise Yoga for the rest of his/her life. It clears the mind of unwanted thoughts and brings in positive energy.
  4. Swim and/or Walk: A lot of people believe that light exercising can lift their spirits. A swim or a walk can relax your mind and make you feel rejuvenated. You don’t have to do this alone. Ask your friends to join you and voila, stress-busting, play, gossip and leg-pulling all at once. What else do you want?
  5. Gym: Workout to release your endorphins. They help you feel better and can instantly release mental stress. Endorphins are happy hormones secreted by the brain and nervous system that can make you feel fresh and energetic to study harder.
  6. Music: Turn up the music people and sing your way through stress. Or if you like listening to soft music go for it. Music soothes the mind, it relaxes your senses. Take a break from stress and listen to any kind of music that pleases you.
  7. Idiot Box: Bored of studying? Need a break? Get yourself in front of the television set and watch your favourite sitcom (only a couple of episodes). If watching funny shows can brighten your day, it will definitely cheer up your study routine.
  8. Dance: Dancing is a very good medicine to relieve both mental and physical stress. Get your grove on and put your hands up in the air. Kick the stress out with your patent moves.


                                 Eat healthy and light to feel good

  9. Cook and Eat Light: They say cooking is therapeutic. The aroma of spices, baked goods and cooked meals can change your mood effectively and of course, you get to eat what you make. We all like eating, don’t we? So get in the kitchen, put on that apron and start chopping. If you can’t cook, make a cup of warm fragrant ginger tea, coffee or everybody’s favourite, Maggi. Also, Remember to eat light as heavy meals can put you to sleep. You don’t want to feel lazy while you study.
  10. Change study subject: After studying one particular subject for long hours, it is bound to get boring and exhausting. Hence, if you wish to still continue studying, you can simply switch to another subject. It helps.

I hope you are sorted with these pointers.

Focus while studying is important, however learning can be made fun too. Aren’t we all experts in bringing life to the dullest parties? So when you are bored with something in your book find ways to liven it up. If you have quirky stress-busting ideas, do share with us. The quirkier the better.
