Physical Reactive Patters 1. Lack of appetite and vomiting: I feel this when I am undergoing any important phase of my life or exam dates are closing by. I can identify this change in my body and this relates to my fear of exams or serious evaluation. I can remind myself that this will only hamper my performance and worsen the situation. I should remind myself that exams are nothing to be feared rather I should appear in exams with the best physical condition for better results. 2. Unable to concentrate: I fell this when I am constantly observed by someone or when I have too many things to do such as facing time constrains.
I can remind myself that I should take one thing at a time. Thinking about all the things at a time will not help to solve the problem rather it would make things worse. 3. Sleeping disorder: Whenever I have something important coming up the next day I feel an amount of discomfort and sleeping problem. I can not sleep properly; moreover I wake up every thirty minutes fearing that I will over sleep. It makes me exhausted when the actual time appears. I should remind myself that I am well prepared and I should get the proper sleep to better perform. . Excessive emotion and crying at small things: I am a very emotional person and I get much attached very quickly. I try to give my best and always except the same amount of attention. This hurts me at times and I become vulnerable. I should remind myself that life is not always fare and I should be prepared for hard times. I should remind myself that over expectation will not bring anything good so I should limit my expectations. 5. Lack of interest: This happens when I have too many things to do at the same time. I lose interest in most of them.
I should remind myself that this is quiet normal in life as I am a married student. I should remind myself that I should make lists of things to do and assign specific time for each. I should make sure that I have to make a proper routine and address each issue with the amount of importance it requires. I should remind myself that losing interest will worsen the situation. 6. Head ache: I feel this is pressure situations or before important tasks. I should remind myself that I need to do well in the pressure situation and it will be over. Life is not always pressure and I should be able to handle this.
I should make plans rather than fearing failure to address the situation in a matured manner. 7. Excessive sweat: This happens in situations where I feel I am losing control. Like debating without any valid point, fighting just for the sake of it, getting unnecessarily excited, and so on. I should remind myself in situations like this that individuals are not perfect and, “to err is human”. I should remind myself that everyone makes mistakes and the sooner I accept mine the better. 8. Heart burn, stomach pain: I feel this when I am faced with time constraints and sleeping disorder.
I should remind myself that getting stressed out will not give me more time rather will slow my usual speed. I should remind myself that I should take proper rest and plan ahead so that I can avoid unnecessary time constraints. Sometimes constraints will always be there regardless of planning but I should remind myself that this is just normal and accept it as part of life. I should remind myself that there is no need to panic rather keeping the cool will help. 9. Fatigue: This happens when I need to do too many things at the same time. I feel lost and lazy.
I should remind myself that rather than becoming lethargic I should try to concentrate on time management so that I can finish the things in the best possible manner. 10. Anger: This happens when I try to make someone understand something and he does not understand. This also happens when I do silly mistakes. I feel ashamed at the same time angry. The anger sometimes gets out of control and I start to behave in an illogical manner. I should remind myself that anger does not bring anything good. I should remind myself that I should control anger in order to do well.
