The school has been back now for 3 weeks and hopefully, all the kids are getting into the groove of a new school year and for some a whole new school and teaching environment. The school year didn’t kick off as planned, with the snap 5-day lockdown here in Perth delaying schools’ return, but now thankfully we are on track to enjoy the school year ahead.
I have noticed within the last few weeks; that a lot of kids have become quite anxious or their anxiety has been heightened from going back to school. Here are a few tips which will hopefully help –
For the older kids, the same as above applies, but it is good for them to take responsibility as well, they can pack their own bags and set out their own uniforms etc, below are a few extras for older kids, especially those starting new schools –
Another great tool to have for any age, from kindy right up to adulthood, is meditation. It can be an improvised form of meditation, especially for the younger kids, a simple sit down and talk about their day or sit down for 1 min and take a few deep breaths, the older kids can download an app perhaps to help them become a little more mindful, this will help with any stresses or worries they may have. A few great apps are Smiling Minds, Headspace and 1 Giant Mind.
Call and book in for a Complimentary Assessment to see if Kinesiology may help you or your child, especially with anxiety.
