Playing darts isn’t just a game; it’s a perfect blend of focus and relaxation. The concentration needed to hit the target helps divert attention from exam stress, while the playful competition can lift spirits.

Establishing a balanced routine that includes regular breaks, sufficient sleep, and healthy eating habits is vital. Taking short, frequent breaks during study sessions can prevent burnout and improve concentration.

3. Stay active

Physical exercise is a fantastic stress reliever. Whether it’s a quick jog, a dance break, or a yoga session, getting the body moving releases endorphins and helps clear the mind.

4. Mindfulness and meditation

Mindfulness and meditation exercises can significantly reduce anxiety levels. Simple practices such as deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or guided imagery can help calm the mind and improve focus.

5. Social support

Social support is crucial during exam season. Encouraging students to discuss their concerns with friends or study groups can provide emotional relief and alternative study strategies.

“Playing darts is a fantastic way to alleviate exam stress,” said Craig Heenighan, managing director at Darts Corner. “The game requires focus and precision, which helps take your mind off the pressures of studying and provides a mental break. Not only does it keep your brain active, but it also offers a fun and engaging way to relax and recharge.”
