How to Relax Stress is a basic survival skill and can be very useful in emergency situations. Before a test however, stress or anxiety can undermine your ability to do well. To restore your body to a less-stressed state, try the following exercises:
Breathe in for 6 seconds, hold for 6 seconds, then breathe out for 6 seconds. This will counteract your body's stress response of shallow breathing.
Imagine that you are in a place that you love -- your Grandmother's house or a beautiful meadow in the woods. Imagine that you can hear, smell, feel, taste, and see what is happening around you. This counteracts your body's stress response of racing thoughts.
Tighten your muscles as hard as you can for a few seconds, then relax them. This will allow your muscles to be more relaxed than when you started, counteracting your body's stress response of tense muscles in the "fight or flight" response.
