Parents Beat The Back To School Anxiety!

Obey Kids
It's almost that time of the year, and like most parents my wife Joy, and I, along with the Obey kids experience our share of stress, and anxiety leading up to the first day of school.

This year, we are adding to our normal 1st of August routine of getting the kiddos adjusted to going to bed earlier, a parents and kiddos walk around the neighborhood family challenge.

During this challenge, we will allow ourselves to decompress from the stress of  shopping for the new school year, and the many changes that will accompany the 2019 school year. This will also allow, our kids to adjust as well as give us time to talk about what concerns them, with the upcoming year.

Parents, we must understand, not all kids adjust to going to a new school, being promoted to high school, or that dreaded first day of being dropped off on campus, and not knowing anyone.
Remember some kids may enjoy this type of change, while for others, it may only increase their anxiety levels.

To do this challenge, just commit to 30 minutes a day, with your kids walking the neighborhood, park, or other selected location beginning on the 1st of August, until school starts. The only requirement is to put away all electronics, except that which is needed to track the time.

This challenge is not about distance, its about getting your life centered, and reducing the anxiety which comes with the kids going back to school.

Here are a few topics we discuss with our kiddos, which we utilize during our challenge, and it has seem to work well for us.

  • Discuss the topic of new teachers - Will the kiddos like them
  • Lunch time - Will they sit alone, or will they have friends to eat with
  • New Friends - When their old friends have moved on to another school
  • School subject - Will the classes be harder

As parents, we have to always keep our emotions in check, our kids feed off our emotions. If you are nervous about the upcoming school year, your kiddos will pick up on your anxiety as well. We have to be there for them, both physically, and emotionally. Be sure to show confidence, and affection while keeping your energy level up.

So there you have it, and nothing to it but to do it starting August 1st 2018, thru the start of school.

To keep our energy level up, we utilize AdvoCare Spark, and yes although we are independent distributors, you are in no way obligated to buy from us. AdvoCare En Espanol

Why I Take AdvoCare MNS 3

Let me start by saying this first....most people do not eat a healthy balanced diet to provide them with all of the vitamins their bodies require and this has led to more and more people taking a  Multi vitamin supplement to supplement what they are deficient in. Multi Vitamins are available in a number of different forms, including tablets, gel capsules and even liquids.

One of the most obvious benefits to taking a multi vitamin supplement is the convenience. It is much easier for a person to take one dose of a multi vitamin supplement which contains all of the body's needed vitamins compared to taking each one individually. This is especially true in the case of small  children as it can be difficult for them to take a large number of vitamin supplements , whereas one dose of a multi vitamin supplement is far easier on the child, as well as the parent.

However, for most, a liquid multi vitamin supplement is the most suitable form for children, but this form can also benefit anyone who has difficulty swallowing, or taking supplements in traditional tablet form.

The increase in the availability of multi vitamin supplements has led to a great variety in the brands and also the actual content of the multi vitamin supplements. The names of some of the nutrients in these multi vitamin supplements can be a little bewildering and many people simply do not know which ones they require.

To make the decision simpler there are now a number of multi vitamin supplements created for specific people. For example, there are multi vitamin supplements that are designed for children. These multi vitamin supplements contain the specific nutrients that children need for them to grow and develop properly.

Pregnant women have unique nutrient requirements to ensure that their baby receives the necessary nutrients and there are multi vitamin supplements prepared just for pregnant women. As we get older we also have different nutrient requirements and multi vitamin supplements for the elderly are a popular product as well.

It is important to consider the contents of any multi vitamin supplement before consuming too many. There are some vitamins that can be toxic if too much is absorbed and this can occur more easily with multi vitamin supplements as some of the content may be overlooked.

The labelling of the actual percentage of the recommended daily allowance for each vitamin in a multi vitamin supplement should be clearly labelled and must be assessed before a person takes them.

Why I take AdvoCare MNS 3

I personally utilize a Multinutrient Dietary Supplement called MNS 3, which is made by AdvoCare.

MNS 3 is one of their most comprehensive multinutrient dietary supplement systems, and focuses on energy, wellness and appetite control.*  Not only will you benefit from appetite control and enhanced energy but it also may provide you with one, or more of the following below:
