Since the students have already appeared for various entrance exams during the Covid pandemic, they must remain calm in such situations. Students need to focus on both their health and exams.
“Students need additional support from their family and friends who show up for their entry and other exams during these times. Unlike the pre-Covid times when the focus was only on academics during exams, students must now too stay safe. “says Partap Chauhan, director of Jiva Ayurveda.
Chauhaun adds, “Preparing for the examinations and arming them with protective equipment to keep out Covid infection has become a major challenge for students. Ayurveda can help reduce stress and alleviate mental health during such times.”
Ayurveda suggests a few ways that can help a child cope with excessive stress caused by the exams.
Intake of foods like milk, almonds, raisins, cottage cheese, green vegetables, and seasonal fruits should be increased as they keep the digestive system strong. Junk food should definitely be stopped as it is not good for the digestive system at all. A healthy bowel helps keep the mind relaxed and energetic.
Ayurvedic herbs like Aswagandha are a powerful antioxidant that naturally reduces anxiety.
A positive atmosphere at home improves a student’s thinking pattern. Lighting aromatic oils / incense sticks like lavender and lemon will help relax the mind.
The role of parents is very important in a child’s life. Parents should interact more with their children. This would help children reduce their fears and control their thinking.
