Back to School…. Stress and Anxiety

backtoschoolWhere did those 6 weeks of summer go?  Late nights and sleeping in for children and us parents are over.  September is here and it’s “Back to school time”!  Back to the routine of alarm clocks, early mornings, rushing to get kids to school on time, organsise the after school activities, homework and dinner, stress and anxiety.

Just as a new job, change of workplace or even joining a new social group can be daunting for adults, anxiety can start in childhood. For many youngsters starting school for the first time, the thought of being away from their parents is terrifying. Sometimes the anxiety can cause other symptoms such as nightmares, nausea, stomach pain, headaches and dizziness. There are some over the counter Homeopathic remedies and essences available from some health food stores, but a tailor made remedy chosen exactly to your childs needs may work better long term. If you’re worried about your child, contact me via my website.

Essences are a really useful tool to help children regain their natural balance so that they can deal with their situation easier.  They’re a form of energy healing. Energy healing simply means using the energy of something to help you heal. Most of us do this unconsciously, have you ever noticed yourself being drawn to ‘good memories or vibrations’ when you feel upset, like your favourite dog or your favourite place? These calming energies can help us rebalance ourselves and feel centred again.  Choosing essences is a similar, more powerful, way to bring peace, positivity & balance back into your life again.

I love these “Indigo Essences” and have been using them a lot recently for children going to school for the first time and also for those taking exams.  Children are so intuitive, I allow the children to choose their own combination of essences, similar to their own Rescue Remedy.  They’re fantastic to use when there is some change or crisis in the household e.g. Separation, divorce, bereavement, starting school or change of school, exams, moving house or new baby etc.

Here’s just a few of the messages I received from a parents recently. . . .

“My son went to bed half an hour ago and I’ve not heard anything from him.  Normally he would have been up and down at least four times stressing about school tomorrow.  Thank you so much!”

“Thank you for the remedies, Chloe has finally been sleeping this week and feels calmer about her AS exams”

They’re not just for kids; we adults can use them too, when you find yourself stuck in a pattern of thinking or behaviour that you don’t like.  For example, when you often find yourself getting angry, fearful or stressed, an essence can help to centre yourself and move on.

Some people like to choose essences for themselves, while others prefer to have someone choose for them.
