How to Help Your Child Succeed in the New School Year
Ready or not, summer break is winding down and the new school year is almost here!
A new school year means helping your child adjust to new classrooms, new teachers and new challenges. Getting through this transition can be difficult, but there are practical strategies for helping your child adjust to the newness and get prepared to succeed in school.
The time to plan for a successful school year is now. Though laying out a calendar can be beneficial for everyone in the family, it can be especially helpful if you have a child who struggled in school last year.
So, how can you ensure your child heads off to school with the best possible foundation? Following these 3 tips can help your kid start off fresh this fall…
3 Ways to Set Up Your Student for Success
1. Optimize Your Mornings
Strategize how to simplify the before-school hours for everyone in your family. The night before, select outfits, make lunches and organize everything your kids will need for school the next day. This will help make morning preparations more efficient and less stressful.
2. Establish a Study Space
Determine the best place in the house for your children to study. Create a comfortable space where they can keep school materials organized. Any quiet area with adequate lighting and a writing surface can work as a study space. Make sure the study zone is out of the earshot of a TV and free of devices or other distractions.
3. Get Nutritional Support
Aside from giving your children nutritious, organic foods, a great way to help optimize their health is with high-quality dietary supplements. These supplements should include ultra-pure, clinically proven ingredients that provide the vitamins, essential minerals, and other nutrients important for energy, focus, learning, and memory.
At BrainMD, we offer a wide array of brain directed nutraceutical ingredients in supplements designed to assist students in reaching their full potential. Here are 5 natural supplements to help you or your child succeed in school:
Kids’ NeuroVite provides the vitamins and minerals that are needed for healthy minds and active bodies. We chose the nutrient ingredients best documented for kids’ safety and long-term health. This science-based formulation provides generous amounts of nutrients essential for making energy (magnesium, the B vitamins), to support the brain’s maturation (methylfolate, methyl-vitamin B12, choline), for the electrical activity of the retina and the brain (lutein, zeaxanthin), to form healthy muscles and bones (vitamins D and K), for healthy immunity (vitamin A, zinc) and for the many other functions that power healthy growth of mind and body.
Your child will LOVE the taste of the orange-flavored penguin chewables, which are free from sugar, dairy, gluten, corn, eggs, and artificial colorings or flavorings.
Attention Support is scientifically designed for those who struggle with staying focused and attentive. Pycnogenol is the most clinically researched of all herbals and has improved attention, as well as test grades, in university students. Choline is a conditionally essential nutrient that helps make acetylcholine, the brain’s main attention, and memory neurotransmitter. Vitamins B6, magnesium, and zinc all further reinforce attention, learning, and memorization.
Attention Support gives your brain the nutrients it needs to keep on top of challenges and allow you to stay focused and productive.
Brain & Memory Power Boost contains potent, essential nutrients and herbals proven to support a broad range of brain functions. The combination of ingredients in this formula promote the brain’s basic energy generation and utilization functions, support its need for blood flow, and help sustain its nerve pathways via the trillions of synapses that ensure connectivity between its nerve cells. Supporting these multiple functions can translate into healthy brain performance.
This all-star lineup of potent nutrients and herbals can help enhance circulation to your brain, facilitate its information processing, and provide it with protection against toxins.
Focus & Energy was designed to help fight mental fatigue and promote mental sharpness, productivity, and endurance. This breakthrough supplement features high-purity, standardized concentrates of an incredible array of adaptogens – green tea, ashwagandha, Rhodiola and Korean ginseng – all revered in traditional cultures and proven through modern clinical research to improve mental performance when under stress. Also included is choline, supporting the brain’s acetylcholine system for both focus and endurance.
This diverse array of powerful ingredients makes Focus & Energy an essential choice for enhanced mental focus and sustained energy to help cope with life’s daily challenges.
Proper neurotransmitter balance is essential for healthy brain function. BrainMD’s NeuroLink provides an exclusive blend of nutrients that support a diverse array of such key transmitters as adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine, serotonin, GABA, and glutamate. This formula can help you maintain a positive mood. It can also assist you in coping with stressful challenges by helping your brain transmitters and stress hormones stay in balance.
NeuroLink can help you think more clearly, feel happier, and experience greater well-being.
