On Point’s Tips for a Stress-Free Back-to-SchoolAnd just like that, the summer is coming to a close and we’re back to school! Whether you’re excited about sending the kids back, or you’re dreading the coming weeks of mayhem as you all settle into a routine, one thing is for sure: back-to-school time can be stressful for all of us.
Decompress in the Salt Cave.
The salt cave is a little piece of paradise, right here in Beckley. Treat your stressed-out student (or yourself!) to a relaxing after-school trip to the salt cave to help them ease into the new year feeling focused and relaxed.
Acupuncture for the whole family.
The back-to-school season can be stressful for parents, kids, and other family members. Along with new schedules, sports, meetings, homework, and other daily to-dos, back–to-school also coincides with the start of fall when our immune systems become more vulnerable. There’s no better time for a de-stressing, immune-boosting acupuncture visit at On Point!
Practice morning and after school meditations.
A quick 10 minute meditation in the morning can work wonders for stressed-out students and parents alike. Use an app like Calm or Insight Timer to do a before school morning meditation together before starting your separate days. This helps to reduce anxiousness and prepare everyone (even teachers!) for a great day.
After school, a body scan or focus meditation can help us make an easy transition into our evening routines and decompress from the school day.
