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!
