Top Five Reasons Test Takers Suffer From Performance Anxiety

Lack of Sleep

Your feelings are always more intense when you’re tired. Mild anxiety can become extreme if you’re cranky, irritable and unable to focus clearly. As much as possible, you must take care of yourself and get the necessary hours of sleep you need to function effectively. If you’re worried about being able to fall asleep the night, try to do vigorous exercise a few hours before bed to tire you, a relaxing meditation, write in your journal or a ingest natural sleep aid like melatonin.
