Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome back! Today we’re talking about everyone’s favorite topic – Test Anxiety. Okay, not really anyone’s favorite topic, but a really important one because so many law students deal with test anxiety in law school and on the bar exam.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Lee and Alison discuss their experience with exam anxiety

  • Your physiological response during exam prep and exams

  • Why stress isn't all bad

  • The importance of taking care of yourself in law school

  • The correlation between anxiety and lack of sleep

  • How to calm your mind and focus

  • Coping mechanisms when you're blanking on a test

  • How meditation and mindfulness can help alleviate stress and test anxiety

  • Why it's important to control how you talk to yourself in stressful situations

  • When you may need to explore other options for alleviating anxiety with an expert

  • Meditation is not just for hippies - snipers and other elite athletes, soldiers, and high profile people do it, too!
