  • Having a good self-care routine can help you deal with stressful situations better. Take a bath, put on a face mask and just chill!

2) Visualise success

  • If you want to succeed, you’ve got to visualise it! Studies show visualisation is an effective technique and can improve your performance too.

  • Writing down your spinning thoughts, can be a great way to do a complete brain dump and clear your mind so you’re not distracted during your interview.

5) Acceptance

  • A 2015 study of 82 Chinese people showed that acceptance of anxiety was more effective at regulating it than suppressing it. So, say hi to your anxiety, and acknowledge that you’re feeling anxious and that’s perfectly okay.

This article is not a substitute for medical help, and if you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, please seek medical advice.
