Just this morning, I had one of the biggest exams of my time in school. Since I am in physical therapy school, this exam was a practical, in which I would be asked questions on the spot and have to answer and demonstrate techniques learned over the past year.

By October or November, stress and anxiety start to rear their ugly heads as students’ to-do lists grow longer and the days slip away.
