Yoga Strategies to Help Cram For Exams

A feeling of anxiousness or anxiety prior to taking an examination is normal. In fact, some experts believe it is healthy as it serves as an effective stimuli that prompts one to come up with a preparation strategy for an upcoming examination.

But some people are not good with handling their nervousness and anxiety such that it affects their performance in the exam. This is most especially true for those who are cramming for their exam. This makes them repulsive to any preparation method as they are unable to clear their mind.

Allow Body Movement

When an individual feels tensed about the idea of taking an examination that s/he isn’t fully prepared for, the tension is manifested throughout the entire body. Although you have short preparations to ensure that you perform well on your exam, that feeling of nervous tension often reacts on you mentally making you incapable of thinking logically.

Hence, a trick of releasing body tension and nervousness would be really helpful in remaining calm prior to taking your exam. Allowing as much body movement as possible is really helpful. You can do simple exercises such as walking, jogging, or stretching. This will effectively calm your nerves and release any tension that is building up. Doing these body movement enhancement exercises are also quite helpful in waking up your nerves and senses.

Reducing Anxiety and Stress

Stress and anxiety are two of the worst mental and physical health enemies. When people suffer from stress or anxiety, you lose synchronization and focus. This is a deadly combination when you are about to take an examination. The negative emotions or thoughts that you might be having could prevent you from thinking clearly. As a result, you have difficulty remembering all that you have reviewed for the exam and put you at risk for low performance.

Performing Rhythmic Breathing

Rhythmic breathing has been known to offer a wide range of benefits as a yoga practice. Among the physiological effects are increased oxygen supply and re-establishment of the body’s natural rhythm.

Mentally though, rhythmic breathing offers benefits that would help those who are cramming for their exam. It helps bring about calmness of the mind, increase your level of self-confidence, and improve concentration ability. These are all mental abilities that would help improve your performance in an examination. Thus, retention of important information that you need to be able to respond to the exam questionnaires is a very useful benefit of practicing this particular yoga breathing technique.

Deep Breathing

Deep breathing in yoga has been known to effectively combat stress. As you know, preparing for an exam is such a stressful situation to be in. The level of stress also adds up when the actual time of the examination is drawing near and you have not done enough preparation to be confident on your exam performance.

Deep breathing comprises of full and cleansing breaths. This relaxation technique is very simple to perform and yet its effects on the body are very powerful. Here are the steps you can follow:

• Find a comfortable sitting position. Make sure that your back is straight while you place on hand on your chest and the other resting on your stomach.
• Use your nose for breathing in. Do this fully such that you can see your hand resting on your stomach rise. There should also be movement on your chest.
• Use your mouth for exhalation. Do this in a sudden and forceful manner to empty out your lungs.
• Repeat the same process all over again.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation

Here is another well known strategy used for stress relief due to its effectiveness. It involves two process that follows a systematic approach. The first step is involved with tensing specific muscle groups, while the second part helps in releasing that tension to provide relaxation. This is also a very good relaxation technique to use if you are suffering from muscular tension in specific areas of the body. It takes only a few minutes and would be very effective to perform a few minutes before starting your examination.

You must begin by trying to relax and make your entire body comfortable. You can start with slow and deep breathing to provide relaxation. Once you are ready, you can focus your attention on your right foot. Try to tense your muscles on your right foot by squeezing it and holding this position for at least 10 seconds. After that, relax your right foot and bask in the feeling of relaxing your foot.

Use the same method on your left foot this time. The same sequence of creating and releasing tension should be done. Follow this pattern by slowly working your way upwards in your body.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation must not be confused with meditation. The former is more effective if you want to use this method for stress relief or reducing anxiety caused by cramming for an exam. The idea of mindfulness is basically enabling you to get rid of any negative form of thought and becoming more engaged with the present moment. This quality allows you to focus on the task at hand, which in this case is the exam, and increase ability to concentrate.

Although deeper than regular meditation, it does not equal zoning out though. There is still that certain level of awareness of your physical environment but attaining a more specific focus. This will be able you to be more guided in your mental activities.

Guided Visualization

Lack of focus and unorganized thoughts are very characteristic among individuals who are anxious or cramming for an exam. This is crucial as you could basically forget all the information you have patiently reviewed on previously.

To follow this relaxation technique, you must imagine a serene and tranquil scene. Your goal must be to find peace and release any form of tension, whether mental or physical. It could be somewhere tropical or your favorite place as a child, but it has to have a calming effect on you. Do this with your eyes closed and allow yourself to drift away into the scene. Take note of all sensory impulses too for a more effective stress relief.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is one particular yoga style that you can practice to provide more physical and mental harmony that would help your exam preparation. It comprises of a series of slow and flowing movements. Some of the benefits of practicing Tai Chi includes relaxation of mind and body, revitalized energy, and increased concentration ability.

Tai Chi is a low impact yoga style that you can perform, which suits even those with minimum fitness level or any age level. Plus, the above mentioned benefits will truly help you cope with the tension of an upcoming examination.

8:05 a.m. – 9:35 a.m.
Presented by: Jeffrey Tanenbaum, Esq., Nixon Peabody LLP
What impact with the Trump Administration have on federal workplace safety and health-based initiatives and enforcement priorities, and what are the top safety compliance priorities for the Division of Occupational Safety and Health, the Appeals Board, and the Standards Board here in California?

Networking and Refreshments Break
9:35 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.
Injury and Illness Prevention Plans in California: How to Avoid the Most Common Mistakes of Cal/OSHA’s Most Violated Standard
9:50 a.m. – 10:50 a.m.
Presented by: Lisa Prince, Esq., Walter & Prince LLP
California law requires employers to maintain written—and effective—illness and injury prevention plans (IIPP) for general industry. But, while having an IIPP is mandatory, the state’s IIPP general industry standard is the most violated one here in California. Why is that? And, what can you do to ensure that your organization develops and maintains a comprehensive and effective IIPP that complies with the California Department of Industrial Relations’ (DIR) General Industry Safety Order 3203? Also, what additional IIPP requirements may apply under DIR’s Construction Industry Safety Order 1509?
This session will address:
The compliance checklist for ensuring you meet applicable IIPP general industry requirements under state law
Strategies for demonstrating management’s commitment to safety and your IIPP
What your IIPP communication strategy should include
Tips for ensuring that employees comply with safe and healthful work practices that don’t violate Cal/OSHA rules and standards
Strategies for maintaining hazard assessment surveys and follow-up inspections
The written system for covering accident investigation protocols
Abatement procedure requirements to include in your IIPP
When employee and supervisor training on the IIPP should occur
IIPP recordkeeping essentials
Additional IIPP requirements for employers in the construction industry

Acing Cal/OSHA Inspections: Prepare for and Successfully Manage a Visit from Cal/OSHA
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Presented by: Eric Conn, Esq., Conn Maciel Carey LLP
Cal/OSHA inspections are almost always unannounced, and the less prepared you are for an inspector’s knock at the door, the more risk you have of citations and costly penalties. There are a variety of reasons for a Cal/OSHA inspection—an employee’s complaint about an unsafe work practice or an accident report noting a serious injury, illness, or death, for instance. Cal/OSHA inspections may also occur as the result of targeted inspections in certain high hazard industries, which include several types of manufacturers, as well as businesses involved in farming, building and framing, nursing and residential care, retail, and transportation. However, given the broad authority Cal/OSHA has to conduct inspections, the fact is that every workplace could be vulnerable to an inspection and resulting citations.
This session will teach you what to do in advance of and during a Cal/OSHA inspection to minimize the risks of high-cost citations.
You’ll learn:
Employers’ goals for managing a Cal/OSHA inspection
Recent Cal/OSHA and OSHA inspection focus areas that could apply to your organization
Pointers for identifying and preparing for site-specific and unexpected Cal/OSHA inspections
Steps to take before inspections begin
What should go into your OSHA inspection preparation checklist, including how to address:
roles and responsibilities
step-by-step approaches for each phase of the inspection
data and information that should be at hand
Employers’, employees’, and Cal/OSHA’s rights during inspections
Stages of Cal/OSHA inspections, and how to manage the many “moving parts” of the inspection process, including:
the opening conference
the walkaround inspection
document and information requests
supervisor and non-supervisor employee interviews
the closing conference
Your options, considerations, and strategies if citations are received

Lunch (Provided)
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
The Latest Top Cal/OSHA Violations and Trends in Cal/OSHA Enforcement
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Presented by: Andrew Sommer, Esq., Conn Maciel Carey LLP
California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health is perhaps the most aggressive and enforcement heavy approved state OSH program in the nation. In the past year, DOSH has found 93 percent of the businesses that were inspected out of compliance and issued citations amounting to over 2,700 violations. Some of the most commonly cited violations involve California’s unique regulatory requirements such as the Injury and Illness Prevention Program, Heat Illness Prevention Plan and Reporting standards. In the coming year, employers can expect an uptick in Cal/OSHA violations characterized as “Repeat,” and given the state’s recent amendments to its repeat violation standards, they’ll need to conform to federal OSHA's policy. In addition, employers are likely to face increased civil penalty amounts across the board. Due to pressure from federal OSHA to mimic its new penalty structure directed by Congress last year, penalties could increase up to 6,750.
This session will address:
The top Cal/OSHA violations and enforcement trends—and how they compare and contrast with federal OSHA
A close look at Cal/OSHA’s new Repeat violation rule
Potential changes to Cal/OSHA’s maximum penalty authority on the horizon
California’s unique standards concerning notices of intent to issue Serious violations (1BY)
Tips for navigating the Cal/OSHA appeals process

Heat Stress and Illness: Tips to Protect California Workers and Comply With Cal/OSHA’s Strict Requirements
2:10 p.m. – 3:10 p.m.
Presented by: Joshua Henderson, Esq., Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Working in the heat can have severe, and potentially deadly, effects on employees. Cal/OSHA’s byzantine outdoor heat illness prevention regulation, found in Title 8, section 3395 of the California Code of Regulations, continues to pose compliance questions for even the most conscientious employers, and remains the focus of Cal/OSHA and its inspectors. To protect their employees and to minimize liability, California employers must understand and abide by their obligations to prevent and minimize the effects of heat-related illness for employees working both outdoors and inside.
This lively session, will cover:
Environmental risk factors that contribute to heat illness
Cal/OSHA’s outdoor heat illness prevention regulations, including the requirements to:
Provide shade and water
Monitor employees for early signs of heat illness
Establish an emergency response
Train employees and managers to spot the signs of heat illness
Cal/OSHA’s efforts to regulate indoor heat stress
Personal protective equipment (PPE) essentials for combatting heat stress at work
Tips for evaluating your existing heat illness prevention plan to ensure ongoing compliance with Cal/OSHA regulations
Best practices for your heat illness training program
Action plans for removing employees from heat stress dangers while maintaining productivity

Networking and Refreshments Break
3:10 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.
Safety Incentives that Work: California Companies that Have Conquered the Incentive/Discipline Maze to Effectively Motivate Safe Behaviors
3:25 p.m. – 4:10 p.m.
Having a zero-injury record can be a big accomplishment. But, when attaining or maintaining zero-injury status becomes a standard that’s engrained into each and every worker, underreporting of minor injuries or near misses is more likely to occur. Cal/OSHA and federal OSHA are concerned about this issue, and, thus, inspectors are on the lookout for safety incentive programs that are flawed in this respect. This session will examine how companies here in California are “getting it right” with how they motivate their workers while complying with the rules governing incentives and disincentives under state and federal law.
You’ll learn:
Examples of compliant safety incentive programs here in California—and the positive results the safety managers at those companies have been able to achieve with them
The role of disciplinary programs in the overall incentive/disincentive process
The costly citations your company could face if Cal/OSHA concludes that your incentives aren’t legal under state law

Multi-State Worksites: Mastering Safety Compliance Across State Lines
4:10 p.m.– 5:10 p.m.
Presented by: Joshua Schultz, Esq., Law Offices of Adele Abrams, P.C.
Many California-based employers have operations in other states, and in the growing era of the “gig economy” it’s quite possible for employers that never thought they would employ workers across state lines to be in a situation where they’re managing employees who are working outside of California. When employees work out of state, which safety and health rules and regulations govern? Questions like this arise all the time, and it’s important to know the compliance essentials for mastering your safety and health-related obligations.
During this session, you’ll learn:
How to tell which workplace safety and health laws govern when you employ out-of-state workers
Examples of how other states’ regulations may differ from Cal/OSHA and federal OSHA—so you know the types of thorny issues you could encounter if you’re not prepared
How the Trump Administration’s policies are impacting safety on a national level and what that means for managing safety here in California and at worksites across state lines
Whether and how some states’ legalization of medical and recreational marijuana factors into drug testing for safety-sensitive positions outside of California

What can you do to ensure that injury reporting doesn’t breed claims for retaliation under state whistleblowing laws? This talk will power through how California workplaces are affected by OSHA’s post-accident drug testing rule and do’s and don’ts for ensuring that injury reporting doesn’t spark retaliation claims.

Talk #2—HazCom Labeling Practices in California: How Prop 65 Requirements Differ from Federal OSHA Standards

Networking & Refreshments Break
9:10 – 9:30 a.m.

Intensive Workshop
Returning Employees Back to Work Swiftly and Safely: Strategies for Managing Fitness for Duty Assessments and Light-Duty Accommodations under ADA/FEHA
9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Presented by: Karen Capasso, Esq. and Christopher Romero, Esq., Smith Law Offices, LLP
When an employee is injured or suffers an illness as the result of an occupational-related hazard, accident, or some other cause, it’s important for the safety and HR teams to evaluate whether, when, and in what capacity the worker can return to work, whether to full duty or with light-duty restrictions or other accommodations. On the one hand, by returning the worker to duty sooner, you may reduce exposure to workers’ compensation liability in the event that the employee’s condition is due to an industrial injury or occupational exposure to a harmful agent. But, on the other, if an employee returns to work too soon, he or she may be at risk for re-injury. Plus, it’s important to balance your organization’s practical considerations with your legal obligations and rights under California and federal law.
This intensive session is designed to walk you through the return-to-work process here in California, so you’re prepared to deal with potential challenges associated with administering fitness for duty examinations and providing light-duty accommodations.
You’ll learn:
When a fitness for duty examination should be requested
The types of medical records available to employers and what’s off limits
How to tell if a worker is or is not a candidate for returning to work
Your obligations to grant reasonable accommodation under the state’s Fair Employment and Housing Act
Legal strategies for managing injured or sick employees’ return-to-work
And more!

The Rules of Safety Engagement: How to Get the Buy-In You Need to Boost Your Safety Culture to a World-Class Level
11:10 a.m. – 12:10 p.m.
Presented by: Thomas E. (Ted) Boyce, Ph.D., Center for Behavioral Safety, LLC
Building and maintaining an exemplary safety culture is no small feat. In fact, organizations face several challenges on the road to success. Cal/OSHA 2017 closes with some cultural “food for thought”—a case study on the types of challenges one California company faced in taking its safety culture from “good” to “great” and, most importantly, how it overcame its challenges to ultimately achieve success.

Advanta IRA Hosts Nationwide Webinar: Alternative Investments and Strategies in Self-Directed IRAs


Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 12, 2014

Self-direction is popular with investors who want to control their own funds and make their own investing decisions to build wealth for retirement. “Self-directed IRAs and other accounts are unique in that the plan owners control which assets to acquire based on their own knowledge and understanding of the investment,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia and Advanta IRA Services in Florida.

These plans do allow traditional assets, but the most attractive feature of self-direction is the incredibly large pool of alternative investments available to plan owners. “The freedom and flexibility to choose from a wider variety of assets provides critical diversity in retirement portfolios and can potentially increase the gains in these accounts at a faster pace than more traditional methods,” says Callahan. The key is that investors are allowed to invest in things they are familiar with—in hopes to increase the odds of successful returns on investments.

A few popular examples of alternative investments include:

Real estate (single and multi-family homes, commercial property, raw land)
Private lending (notes and mortgages)
Oil and gas options
Precious metals
LLCs, LLPs, and trusts
Private placements and private stock
Foreign currency exchange and futures trading
And much more…

In addition to a nearly unlimited number of investment choices, there are several different accounts that can be self-directed:

Traditional and Roth IRAs
SEP and SIMPLE plans
Individual or Solo 401(k) accounts
Health and education savings plans

Advanta IRA is a self-directed account administrator that serves clients nationwide. The firm does not sell investments or give advice, but facilitates the administrative details of accounts to ensure compliance within IRS rules and regulations. Additionally, Advanta IRA offers weekly educational courses such as webinars and live presentations—at no cost to attendees—to provide current knowledge to investors who use or are considering using self-directed IRAs.

The webinar on November 18, hosted by Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia, covers the basics of self-directed retirement plans and the benefits, as well as the different types of alternative investments allowed in these plans. Attendees learn the basic steps of how the accounts work, the IRS regulations and transactions that are not allowed, and prohibited dealings with disqualified individuals.

Investors of all levels are encouraged to attend.

Event: Webinar—Alternative Strategies for a Self-Directed IRA

Date: November 18, 2014
