Calm your mind even in the midst of preparing for your upcoming exam
From Healthy Women website

Recognizing that physicians have a limited amount of free time each day three simple methods can have positive results.

  3. Colorful coloring - it's not just for children.  Grab your colored pencils & pay attention to your breath. Combining the two can have a calming effect
