At this time of the year, with the shorter days and colder weather, studying can be more of a challenge. Whether your child is grappling with seasonal affective disorder or is just hitting a wall in the middle of the school year, there are ways to help. This list includes suggestions for maintaining focus, improving moods and beating those winter doldrums.
1. Seek Out Sunshine
When there’s less sunshine during the day, it’s especially important to take advantage when the sun is out. Look for opportunities for your child to get outside when the sun is shining. Unfortunately, there may be times when school, sports, clubs and other activities can keep your child indoors during the day. If that’s the case, suggest eating lunch outside or trying to sit near any available windows when studying.
