Sit up straight.
Posture is incredibly important for top performance. Like positive self-talk, sitting up straight can make a big difference to how you fare in your studies.
Your brain speaks fluent body language. If you sit upright, with your shoulders back and head up, your body says ‘I’m confident and capable of dealing with anything life throws at me’ and your brain says ‘Bring it on!’
If you start to feel a bit overwhelmed with your studies, or when you’re sitting in the exam, take a few seconds to notice how you’re sitting – try to adjust yourself slightly and adopt a more commanding posture.
