Aries (March 21-April 19)
A natural born leader, Aries, can often overwhelm themselves with multiple tasks and assignments. Anxiety, for them, stems from over-committing themselves. Help your Aries child manage and prioritize the studies so that they do not expend all of their energy at one go. Ensure that they take a break after every few hours of studying so that they do not burn out. Replenish energy by going outside for a walk. The fresh air could work wonders.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
One of the most stubborn signs, Taurus, can often be very rigid and unwilling to compromise. While this can often make them determined to complete a task before moving on, it can also be detrimental to their time-management. They may feel `stuck’ because of this. Especially when taking an exam, help your child plan out the best strategy for answering the questions, and reinforce the fact that they can always come back to answer a confusing question after answering the easier ones. While studying, also ensure that your child is eating healthy food.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini tend to have a million ideas at once, and this can often confuse them. Because their minds are always working on something or the other, it can wear them out and make them sluggish after a few hours of studying. During the exam season, help a Gemini by encouraging to focus on studies, and saying no to multitasking.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The sweet Cancer can find it hard to keep their feelings and emotions in check at times. They have a tender heart, and when under pressure, their stress can manifest as frustration and anxiety. If your child belongs to the Cancer sign and is feeling quite irritated and annoyed, it could be a sign of stress. Make sure that your child is getting enough sleep and rest. Getting them to open up could also help them de-stress a little.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leos always want to be in charge of things, which can often become very messy and stressful. They need to understand that not everything can always go according to their wish. Help them relax by checking-off some of their tasks. Let them create something, say preparing a small meal, which could help them feel in charge and get focused on their studies again.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Despite knowing that aiming for perfection is not really healthy, that does not stop a Virgo from wanting to do so. Wanting everything in a particular order can often stress them out. While you cannot physically help them, be emotional support for them. Encourage them as best as you can. If nothing else, help them clean their workspace so that they can get organized.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Most of the stress for a Libra stems from deciding which task should be given priority. When stressed, Libra can get a bit dramatic. If you are parenting a Libra, a good way to help them deal with their stress is by talking to them. Having a person to confide to, can be a stress-buster for them.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Such an enigmatic sign, Scorpio, can often be very hard to understand. But a very obvious sign that they are stressed is when they start to lose their temper or start to lash out. While most parents would not want to go this route if you want to de-stress a Scorpio, satisfy their cravings. Junk food for your kid may be a no-no, but if you think they are too strung-out, a pint of ice cream or maybe their favorite food could not hurt!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarius like to keep things simple. Anything, which starts to get too complex, can stress them out. They usually manage to keep their cool and are usually the least stressed. But when they do get stressed, they surely need some assistance. Refuel their positivity and optimism to get them back on track.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorns are usually able to accomplish whatever it is they set their mind to. This pressure of always wanting to succeed can result in Capricorns being very hard on themselves. They often strive to achieve unrealistic demands, which can be stressful after sometime. If your child is a Capricorn, remind them of their achievements. Help them gain control by planning the work for the next few days with them.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Aquarius loves to be independent. They like to do their own thing their own way and have no problem doing it on their own. However, with the pressure of the exam season, they can get pretty high-strung. Help your Aquarius child de-stress by helping them prioritize their tasks. Make a list of pending assignments, you could even make a to-do list. Helping them get organized is a great way to help them clear their head and regain focus.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Being the most sensitive zodiac sign, Pisces, can get overly emotional when they are stressed. They also tend to undermine their abilities. And since they are often very private about their feelings, they can often shut down when they get overwhelmed. Talk to a Pisces to help them calm down. Help them relax by engaging in a fun activity with them. Knowing that they have someone to rely on, your child will find it easier to tackle their exams.
