This is the final blog post in an eight-part blog series, Seven Simple Solutions to Smarter, Less Stressed Kids. Each post contains one new solution to help families grow together and help improve academic performance.

DID YOU KNOW?

Morning is the time that we have a great opportunity to open to our fullest potential. By meditating first thing in the morning, we are opening our minds by lowering stress and allowing the brain to use its optimal capacity. It is in this way that we set the intention for our day. When you help your family start the day off in a relaxed and stress-free environment, you set the tone for a vital, balanced, and productive day.

SIMPLE SOLUTION

Make a conscious effort to set aside enough time each morning to create a relaxing start to the day for you and your family.  

MAKE IT YOUR OWN

  • Awaken calmly versus being jolted out of bed by changing morning alarms to tranquil nature sounds or soothing music.
  • Eat breakfast and drink your morning coffee or tea near a natural light source. Natural light enhances muscle relaxation.
  • Begin the day with a daily meditation practice. You can download one of my audio books at www.DrGailGross.com.    
  • While getting dressed, take a few moments to pull your brain back from the tasks and responsibilities of the day and visualize your personal intention.
