Handle stress during UPSC preparation
We all go through stress in life in one way or the other. It is not necessarily due to UPSC preparation but many other situations in life. What matters is how we deal with it? Let us talk about stress during the UPSC preparation. Stress is a byproduct of the rigorous mental endothermism that you are going to incur during this period of preparation in UPSC. It is natural, so accept it as a new natural for yourself. Be prepared for it and convince yourself that you are becoming a hard alloy with all the heat that is being poured upon you during this phase.
If your mind is prepared for any eventuality, the stress would be burnt too and pure bliss would find a way to your mind. Enjoy the journey because this examination is all about enjoying every bit of the journey as the destination may be complicated than the journey. This preparation prepares you for all the ups and downs that you are going to face in the service phase, so it kind of prepares you mentally. This mental exothermism i.e. anxiety and stress cannot be avoided but only managed well. You have to be vigilant of it through a healthy lifestyle and relaxing for a while during the entire phase of preparation.
Don’t be upset, be calm and composed even in the hardest of times. Lord Krishna taught Arjuna during the recital of Bhagvad Gita (in Chapter 2, Verse 37) – if you are killed you will attain the higher planets, and if you are victorious you will enjoy the Earth. Therefore, be confident of your success –stand up and fight! – (युद्धाय कृतनिश्चयः)
