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!

Sleep Like Babies

Summer is over, folks! Kids are back in school and it’s time for the whole family to get back into a set routine. Sometimes this is easier said than done. One of the toughest parts about going back to school is reestablishing a bedtime. 

Sleep has a huge impact on our health. Inadequate sleep causes changes to ghrelin and leptin, the hormones that regulate the body’s energy balance. Even the slightest sleep deprivation (or a night of crummy sleep) can affect our mood, ability to focus, etc. According to studies, twenty-one percent of adults reported experiencing more stress when they didn’t get adequate sleep. Our children can experience the same stress when they don’t get adequate sleep. 

To help get your family back on track, try the following:

Establish a consistent schedule – Have everyone get up at the same time and go to bed at the same time daily, including weekends. Letting kids stay up late on Friday or Saturday may seem harmless, but it can throw them off for the following school week. 

Have a bedtime routine – Doing something like taking a bath or reading a book before bed can help calm the mind and get the body in the mood for a good night’s rest. 

Mix in essential oils – Products like doTERRA Serenity, a blend of essential oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension and calm emotions, can support a restful sleep when used aromatically. Applying doTERRA Lavender oil to the soles of our feet can also help encourage some zzzzz’s.
