Standardized testing won’t go away anytime soon. The best bet is to reduce stress to make test times easier for students, parents and teachers.

Tips for Stress

  • Diet. What you feed your body can create stress. Reduce sugar and improve nutrition. Breakfast is necessary to jumpstart metabolism.
  • Rest. Children between ages ten and twelve need ten hours sleep per night. The average adult needs six to eight hours sleep. One bathroom trip eliminates an hour of sleep. Sleep deficit will eventually wear the body down and make it susceptible to illness.
  • Exercise. Thirty to forty-five minutes of exercise five days a week give the best benefits to the body. It should be scheduled so it gets done. 
  • Mental attitude. Encourage your kids to do their best. Take advantage of the snack breaks during the special scheduling. Throw caution to the wind and be positive during the test.

Listen as Dr. Raj Gupta joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share great tips to deal with stress associated with standardized testing.
