As you know, we are approaching testing season. In addition to getting a good night's sleep and eating a healthy breakfast, we would like to share some tips that may help your students mentally during the test.Take a few minutes to focus on your breathing. Concentrate on the air going in and out of your lungs - long, deep breaths will calm you. Do this for two minutes. Two specific breathing techniques that some students practiced in class are snake breathing and square breathing. These really do work!

- If negative mental thoughts come to you, stop them immediately and repeat an affirmation such as "The answers will come" or "I am smart - I can do this."
- Use guided imagery right before the test and think of a relaxing place such as the beach. This works best if you imagine the sights, sounds, and smells of the relaxing place you are thinking of.
