Back to School Focus

Like adults, children sometimes have trouble focusing. For one reason or another, our brains just simply refuse to do what it needs to do so that we can complete tasks. Luckily, there are a few things we can do to give the ol’ noggin a hand.

Create a routine – Do you kids need a little break after school before they can focus on homework? Give them a set period of time for either playing outside simply kicking back before they dive back into the books.

Reduce distraction – Some people can’t focus in a messy environment. Others need complete silence. TV and mobile devices can also create a “noisy” atmosphere. Help your child figure out what works for them and create a space that will help them focus and do what they need to do.

Incorporate essential oils – Teachers have actually began utilizing doTERRA essential oils and diffusers in their classrooms. Eucalyptus oil has been found to help clear the mind during exams. Douglas Fir oil can help increase focus. Something about Spearmint oil has been proven to invigorate the mind. Lavender oil is handy to help create a calming environment.

Take a cue from your children’s teachers and set up a diffuser in their workspace. You never know until you give it a go!
