Simple strategies to lessen your stress and anxiety

For those times when you feel heightened stress and anxiety, such as:

  • Taking a test
  • Giving a presentation
  • Job interview
  • High performance events
  • Driving 
  • Flying 
  • Stressful events at work, home or school

There are resources you can use to help you proactively manage your stress and anxiety in the moment. 

“I’m a graduate student at Yale University and learned to use these tappers after having failed an important board exam. I was anxious and doubtful while studying to retake the exam (and other exams, too). The tappers helped me move out of “panic mode” and focus on the material I needed to review.

I used the tappers while studying and on my way to take the test. I wasn’t able to bring them into my exam, but I was able to use the strategies from the Help in the Moment handout while taking the exam, it was a game-changer for me!

Thanks to Bi-Tapp, I was able to work through my self-doubt and pass my board exam. I will continue using these tappers for years to come.”

Review of the week

"...Bi-Tapp has been an amazing resource for our students and staff alike. Because of Bi-Tapp accessibility, students are able to experience the benefits of increased emotional regulation without missing out on class time. I am seeing students so excited about the difference that they see and feel within themselves and it is incredibly empowering...

Our staff have also found benefit using Bi-Tapp through increased calm and focus."
