Expatriate healthcare insurance policyholders may wish to encourage their children to exercise and eat healthily if they are stressed while revising for exams.
If young people are "not sleeping very well, anxious, not hungry, very angry, snappy and slightly withdrawn", they may be suffering from this negative emotion, Naomi Richards from The Kids Coach said.
"Exercise and nutrition" can suppress these stress levels, she stated.
Parents must communicate with their offspring and should ensure they know they can seek advice from their mother and father if they are suffering from stress.
Furthermore, the amount of pressure young people have to succeed should not be amplified through parental demands, nor should children feel unnecessarily concerned about their tests, the expert noted.
Taking a break is important, with patterns involving short periods of revision, followed by relaxation and a drink or snack proving to be beneficial for many individuals, Ms Richards stated.
While not studying, children could "go for a bike ride, do relaxation techniques, read a book, watch a bit of TV or talk to friends", but must ensure they are not thinking about the material they have to learn.
Children must also be allowed to develop their own revision style, with adults often telling their offspring to revise in a certain manner that may be ineffective for them, she added.
A recent study from the University of Chicago found stress management could be a key skill for succeeding in educational and sporting activities.
"If a student interprets their physiological response as a sign they are about to fail, they will," Sian Beilock, associate professor in psychology at the institution explained.
She noted cortisol – which is released when people are under stress – can either promote success for a student or lead them to fail, depending on their frame of mind.
The research also discovered that individuals can alter their outlook by off-loading their stresses, writing about their concerns or remembering previous times when they have performed well.
