Maintain A Sense of Humor
Involve a friend. Crack a joke. Draw a funny face on the cover of your prep book. Do a handstand in between practice sections. Put on "Shake it Out" by Florence and the Machine and literally shake it out for a few minutes. Make a list of all the reasons why this process is really ridiculous (my brother—now in med school—put on a nice impromptu comedy routine about all the stress incurred by filling out a bubble sheet at dinner the other night). While you are taking your next practice section, if you come across a problem that stumps you, laugh. Seriously! Stop working for a few seconds and have a good laugh. At least smile. Then, move on. There: don't you feel better?
Yes, we know this process is serious. But it doesn't have to be THAT serious.
