Parents often ask me how they can de-stress and stay calm with their kids. I highly recommend the Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT. It couldn't be simpler, and takes almost no time. There are no side effects. It becomes more effective over time...
Editor's Note from Sylvia Poareo: I have long used EFT for myself and my children with great results. Here Dr. Laura Markham provides a wonderfully easy to understand explanation of the process. I highly recommend using this simple yet highly effective tool on a regular basis to help yourself and your child let go of any fears or anxiety. Let me know what you think and/or how it works for you and your children!

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
~William James, American philosopher and psychologist, leader of the philosophical movement of Pragmatism, 1842-1910
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: "A stressed child cannot learn." Powerful words from a compelling video that not only proves the necessity of meditation, but also it's benefits. Also, they speak specifically of transcendental meditation... mindfulness meditation is also wonderful or any meditation practice that fits in an educational setting.

Fitness is a way to keep our bodies functioning well, or in balance. One way to determine if we are ‘fit’ or in balance is to maximize the connection between the voice, the ear, and the brain (A series of 5 laws indicating that the voice produces what the ear hears and the ear emits the same stressed frequencies as the voice—“The Tomatis Effect” and “The Davis Addendum to the Tomatis Effect”1).

If you suffer from hypoglycemia (irritability when hungry), "crash" with stress, or if you have recurrent infections that take a long time to resolve, you may have underactive adrenal glands — particularly if the symptoms started suddenly after a viral infection.
