Words of wisdom
As we move further into ‘testing season’ and the administration of standardized tests, it can be difficult to not get stressed about those tests.
It was once said that we should let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.
We can learn a lot from that quote. Instead of worrying about the tests, think ahead. Get plenty of sleep the night before and eat a healthy breakfast. Plan to listen to or read the instructions carefully and try some deep breathing or stretching before you start.
If you find yourself worrying about this upcoming test, take charge of things. Think and plan in advance, and remember this: all you can do is your very best, and that’s all anyone can expect of you.
With something to think about, make it a great day. The choice is yours.
