Exam Stress

Most students will have a short episode of worrying or mild anxiety as they approach examination time, whether they are young children or older adolescents, whether they are junior school going-children or senior ones. Many students experience increased stress levels and in some cases that stress can become very intense and acute. Children who experience examination stress may tend to become irritable, have disturbed sleeping and eating habits, and may worry immensely. Some even experience abdominal discomfort headaches or other symptoms like trembling of hands, palpitations, depression and even emotional breakdowns, accompanied by crying. Poor motivation and lack of concentration are also the usual complaints. Such symptoms can influence the physical, emotional and mental strength of the child. These adverse effects might then overpower the child so as to bring down his or her academic performance. This vicious cycle pushes the child into further stress and anxiety when he or she is faced with exams at school, resulting in panic reactions, blanking out during exams, repeated inability to perform and failure. All these put tremendous pressures on the child and the parents to cope with Exam stress.

Having someone to talk with, which could be you – a parent, a teacher, a school counselor or a family physician in some cases, can be helpful to your child and help alleviate his or her symptoms of distress. The team at Mind Specialists aims to provide support, counseling and practical tips to you as well as for your children to help cope with examination stress and panic and also deal with it in a constructive and pro-active manner.

Mood Management

Emotions are not something we feel in set structure or patterns. One day we could feel a spike in joy and then that same evening experience blues. This is all normal. However, sometimes our mood can waver too much, or swing way too far to the extremes. This can hamper daily functioning and impair decision making abilities. While experiencing every emotion is what truly brings flavour into our lives, understanding how to manage them helps us function better as a society.

Healthy Aging

Ageing is not necessarily a burden and does not necessarily mean a reduced capability in a person’s ability to contribute to society. Healthy aging is about optimizing opportunities for good health so that older people can take an active part in society and enjoy a high and independent quality of life. This is simple to achieve with continued and consistent good choices in nutrition, exercise, treatments and lifestyle.
