Back to School Wellness is not just for Students, Teachers, and Parents
Everyone has added stress, added exposure during this season.
Summer is nearly over, September is upon us. Many parents are excited to get their kids off to school, college. It’s a time of newness and renewal. And it’s when work changes from “Summer Light” to “Let’s-Get-Serious Fall”. What does that mean for your wellness?
Back-to-school time can be great because there’s a lot of excitement in the air, everything feels new. However, there can be a lot of stress as everyone ends their summer vacations and returns to a normal working schedule
- Longer days
- Busier schedules
- More meetings
- More work
- Year-end preparation
It’s important to pay attention to changes in your mood and your energy. Are you suddenly finding yourself feeling more anxious? Overwhelmed? Unusually tired?
New students, new teachers, new roommates, new colleagues, new classrooms - new germs!
Quite simply, more people in school and more people in the office equals greater exposure to bugs and viruses. For most of us, it’s not a problem, but anyone with a compromised immune system could have trouble fending off illness. That includes those who’s immune systems weaken due to the added stress.
Boost Auto-Immune System, Relieve Anxiety and Fight Fatigue
This is an important time to boost your auto-immune system so that you are able to manage exposure to anything new that’s going around.
And, if you are feeling overwhelmed by new a new routine, feeling anxiety about more work, and finding yourself fatigued - that is not unusual.
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are great at helping your body build immunity and the energy needed to combat the added stress and added exposure this season can bring.
