Oracle Wellness: Back to School

In the blink of an eye, it will be "back-to-school" season. This can be a stressful time for both parents and children. Consider the below tips, as you prepare your family or other loved ones for this busy time:

  • Reinforce good sleep habits. Getting adequate rest is important to feel "at your best", but also for helping to prevent depression. Work to establish some sort of nighttime routine for your child, regardless of age - let them know that sleep is important.
  • Stay connected / Be available. It seems the older children get, the less they openly share with parents and family members, but you should still work to be aware of how they are feeling on a day-to-day basis. Send an encouraging note in their backpack, or shoot them a quick text / email - just to let them know they are not alone, you love them, and you are always available to them. Take time each day to discuss ANYTHING - whether it be an issue that appears scary or challenging to your child, or simply how their day went. Stay away from "yes" and "no" questions, as you want to open a dialogue.
  • Encourage healthy eating. Food choices can affect mood, energy level, self-esteem, and ability to concentrate. Encourage your child to eat a variety of healthy foods, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean meats. If your child opts for a vegetarian / vegan route, make it a goal of yours, to learn about each, so that you can offer your child a well-rounded eating plan, and still be mindful of their desires. Invite your child to help you plan meals for the week, shop for the groceries, and prepare the meals / snacks to give them a comprehensive view of what it takes to "eat healthy".
  • Practice what you preach. Children are very observant. Taking a "do as I say, not as I do" approach won’t go very far in their minds. Try following the same tips you are encouraging them to try. Tackle each item together, and relish in the quality family time that comes with it!
