Almost all students report “stress” associated with going to college the first time or returning for continued education at a later stage of life. If you relate to one or more of the following key reasons for stress, you can transform learning into a less stressful and more successful experience.

  • Fear of failing
  • Juggling multiple responsibilities (time management issues)
  • Entering unknown territory (new subjects, environment, people)

There are comforting science based facts that may put your mind at ease. Your brain is naturally curious and hard wired to be a “lean, mean learning machine.” Sensory and cognitive thinking equipment and software is in place to take in information, retain knowledge and build skills. Your brain acknowledges successful learning experiences by manufacturing “feelings” of victory and achievement. This reward system further locks in knowledge retention and maintains a cycle of continuous learning.

You can reduce academic stress by visualizing, writing and sharing (with others) the beneficial outcomes you want to experience. Repetitive positive thoughts, images and affirmations create new and deep neuron pathways. When you think positively about positive outcomes, you are more likely to experience positive emotions and feelings. They perform as an internal GPS navigation system, guiding decisive and intelligent actions that create your desired outcomes. These new pathways displace imaginary stress filled thoughts. Negative thoughts, feelings and emotions can fool you into thinking a threat is real when it isn’t.

Trust your brain’s natural curiosity and awesome power to learn quickly and with ease. You can discover your sensory and cognitive thinking strengths at a link provided below. Brain PathWays is a statistically validated neuroscience system for academic success and eliminating stress.
