Stress Relief: Important while
studying for finals and the bar exam

Final exams and the bar exam are sources of great stress for many people. In addition, other sources of stress - finances, relationships, family, children, substances - only magnify the stress inherent in test taking environments. It is important that you keep your levels of stress in check in order to maximize your potential for success.

"The body’s natural relaxation response is a powerful antidote to stress. Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, visualization, progressive muscle relaxation, meditation, and yoga can help you activate this relaxation response. When practiced regularly, these activities lead to a reduction in your everyday stress levels and a boost in your feelings of joy and serenity. What’s more, they also serve a protective quality by teaching you how to stay calm and collected in the face of life’s curveballs."
