Tackling Test Stress Tip 7: Dress Comfortably

I’ve heard of some schools that relax their dress codes during state-wide tests or exams and allow students to wear pajamas to school. I know this may make students feel relaxed and I’m all for that. We all love casual day, right? Well, I’ve also heard of of schools who encourage their students to “Dress for Success” during important tests. There is something to be said for that too.

Whether your school goes for casual or not, you should encourage COMFY! Here are a few suggestions:

  • Layered clothing that can be put on and taken off depending on temperature
  • Natural fibers like cotton seem to breathe better than synthetic materials
  • Loose clothing that doesn’t bind
