| | Exam Anxiety
The next hurdle I am trying to address in order to faciliate my recovery is managing academic pressure and exam anxiety so that it does not overwhelm me or act to trigger eating disordered behavior.
I accept full responsibility for my anxiety surrounding exams and now I am seeking to address it and move beyond it. The anxiety is baseless and irrational although it has a profound affect on my life. I feel jittery and on edge for weeks leading upto the exams, struggle to study and usually employ avoidance tactics like cleaning my room or focusing interspectivally.
Has anyone else found effective techniques to manage exam anxiety? At this stage I am not really sure what to do. I have booked two sessions with the Leftkoe Institute and hopefully I can eliminate any beliefs contributing to the exam anxiety.
