Before a test or exam
Noticing the support of the ground and chair. Perhaps, inviting students to shrug the shoulders and yawn, or sighing out the breath.
Following their breathing for 1 minute – maybe hand on their belly, or tuning into sensations of their hands or feet. They can visualise themselves completing the paper calmly and allowing the knowledge they have to flow easily. Then seeing themselves as having completed the test well and putting down the pen.
At any time they notice nerves getting the better of them, returning awareness to their feet, hands or breath and noticing sensations.
