Back to School Sleep Adjustments – Monday, August 31, 2015
One thing that can help this time of year go smoother is adjusting yours and your children’s sleep habits.
During the summer, kids stay up later at night and wake up later in the morning which will set them up for a rude awakening once school starts up again.
Beth Clary, a mother of two girls, says that the key to back-to-school is healthy snack and a lot of patience.
Studies show that kids who sleep well do better in school. More specifically, a new study shows that kids who sleep well do better in math and languages.
There is a new book that promises an end to the bed time battle for good. “The Rabbit Who Wants to Fall Asleep” was written by a Swedish psychologist who claims it will put kids to sleep in 7 minutes.
This book comes with instructions on how to read it properly in order to have the somewhat hypnotizing effect that puts the kids to sleep so quick.
For parents, a quick yoga routine before bed may be the key to your good nights sleep.
Dana Santas, a yoga mobility trainer, believe that just 6 minutes if yoga before bed can promote a better nights sleep no matter your profession.
Santas recommends this yoga routine for parents:
- Warrior 2 pose
- Bent knee twist
- Deep breathes while counting down from 20
