It’s been some time since I last posted. Been tied up with loads of work! Hope you’re all doing well. So let’s get to the title today….brain fog!! What is that?? I am pretty sure that everyone would have experienced it at some point of life!
The feeling where your “brain” feels it’s in cloud nine? Where the images goes blurry and all? It gives you a feel good feeling like you’re kinda of floating…but wait!!! WHAT??!! something is SOO NOT RIGHT!! You turn around and you realize that you’re in the exam hall……Oookay! What do you do?? Was it e = mc^2 or m = ec^2 ??. Then you’re palms turn sweaty and you take a toilet break!!! Okay let’s not take this further……..This all started when you were experiencing this syndrome called BRAIN FOG! I am not the medical expert to elaborate on the biological reactions of the human body, so I shall skip the medical terms. But I think I can offer you advice on how to overcome this situation when you’re at the exam hall.
Firstly, can you PLEASE avoid being in such a situation?? I totally and truly believe that brain fog happens only when you’re not prepared for the exam. Imagine understanding a concept fully? Like, you know for a fact about Bernoulli’s principle or the derivation of Euler’s formula or even how Kirchoff’s Law works. I personally feel that chances of you experiencing brain fog shall reduce drastically. The key is to UNDERSTAND!! Not memorize! Isn’t that what learning is all about?
Okay, maybe it is easier said than done, example for some out there, the exam hall environment (which is creepily quiet) gives them the jitters!! Then, you will start experiencing all sorts of syndromes you never had before (including seizures,panic attack, sudden arterial blockage and fever 😉 ). In this case, try to focus on something else. Try to focus on the paper instead….everyone in the exam hall (excluding the invigilators) are more or less just like you. Pay more attention on your goals instead. What is your motive? Rid the nervousness and think of the bigger picture? What will you achieve if you’ve answered this paper well? Do you really want all those hours of studying to go wasted just because you panicked? Weigh the options..think for yourself
Finally after all this, take deep breaths (remember, deep breaths always help) and answer your paper.
Preparation + determination + focus = SUCCESS
