Welcome to our brand new series Back to School Natural Survival Guide! Yesterday, we discussed how to start your child’s morning off positively and energetically the natural way.
Today, we’re going to discuss how to get your child over the First Day Jitters! Even though we’ve been out of school for quite some time, we can still remember the excitement of the first day of school! It is almost like it was just yesterday when all of those memories come flooding through; adrenaline, excitement, and a little bit of stress.
For those of you that may not know, we home-school our two daughter’s. We pride ourselves in our commitment of giving our daughters the very best education possible. Our oldest daughter just tested to jump to 2nd grade instead of 1st grade; we couldn’t be more proud of her! Our youngest daughter was in pre-school last year but was doing 1st grade math along with her older sister as well as writing. She also is a grade above where she technically should be.
Even though our daughters are home-schooled, they still have the first day jitters. To calm their jitters, we had both of them pick out their favorite diffuser necklaces (which of course are very girly and stylish). We place different oils on them depending on how their morning is going. We highly recommend Stress Away, Valor II, Cedarwood, or KidScents GeneYus Essential Oil. You will be amazed at how calm and focused they will be. We apply GeneYus to their wrists every day and have them take a few deep breaths of it before starting their school work.
Let’s move on to homework time. They made it through their first day of school just fine. Now, it’s homework time.
It’s time to settle down from all of the excitement of their first day and complete that first homework assignment. What better way to study and complete their work then to diffuse a little peppermint, brain power, or clarity!
Both Maria and I can testify that diffusing any of the three essential oils above makes a huge difference with concentration. Whether the diffuser is on for our daughters or for us; those three amazing oils have an incredible affect on all of us! Not only will your children be able to concentrate, your parent brain fog will be lifted as well! It’s a win, win for everyone!
Congratulations Mom and Dad, you’re child(ren) has successfully made it through their first day of school!
