Keep the kids healthy during back-to-school season with a balanced lifestyle

Fall

It’s that time of year again. Summer flew by, and the school year, with all its activities, is upon us. As few simple lifestyle adjustments can go a long toward keeping your precocious kids healthy and strong during the big transition.

The fall season is a good time to fortify the kids’ immune systems. Get ready for the cold weathers seaon by stabilizing the transition to winter. Set up a solid routine for the children and stick to it. To avoid aggravating their energy balance in the fall, help them avoid loud noise, intense emotions and chaotic activities. Get them to bed at a healthy time, so they can get a good night’s sleep.

Depending on where you live, it might still be hot in autumn, so remain cautious about the kids getting too hot, and avoid too much of the spicy, sour and salty foods until the weather cools down.

During the fall, have the kids get up early, or at least early enough to avoid a rush, when the world is calm, to prepare their minds for the day. After going through their wake up routine and cleansing procedures, have them brush their teeth and rinse their mouths with a warm mouth rinse. If fall is dry where you live, massage their skin daily with oil to prevent dryness and keep them mentally grounded during the school day. Good massage oils for the fall are sesame and almond.

For all of us, including children, fall can be a time of stimulating new projects and a time to get serious and, maybe, artistic, as vata dosha ramps up. Enjoy your fall and make the most of the season with your healthy routine.

Do you have any special routines for the fall? How do you get through the big back-to-school transition and stay sane?

    Hi,
    Is the Beathe Deep tea safe for older children (10 and up)? I drink it and it helps me with chest congestion. I was wondering if it is safe for children.
    Thank you

    Hello, Elaine!

    Thanks so much for your question. There are no warnings associated with children consuming Yogi Breathe Deep tea. However, we take a conservative approach to individual health. Please note that this tea does carry a warning to consult a healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication or if you have a medical condition.

    In light of this warning and given that everyone can respond uniquely to herbs and botanicals, we recommend you consult your child’s qualified healthcare provider or pediatrician with any questions you may have regarding your child’s consumption of Yogi Breathe Deep. He or she is best suited to identify any particular substances to which your child may be uniquely sensitive and make a recommendation based on your child’s individual medical profile.
