Excellence is the difference between what I do and what I am capable of.
Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it.
The human brain is about 60% fat. That means when your kids eat healthy fats, it can support brain function. Some foods with good amounts of healthy fats include avocado, nuts and seeds. Oils such as extra-virgin olive oil and coconut oil are also beneficial.
Carbohydrates are important eating for academic success. Some examples of healthy complex carbohydrates to add to your child’s diet are brown rice, quinoa and oats. These types of carbohydrates elevate levels of serotonin in the brain, which has a calming effect.
True or False: The longer you study in one sitting, the higher your score will be.
False. The key to studying is to study smart or more efficiently as opposed to studying longer. Many students do not know how to study efficiently and waste a lot of time. Successful students tend to figure out what the teacher has deemed most important and that is what they study. These students don’t study everything, just what is important. Students that tend to earn “C”, “D” and “F” grades try to study everything, which automatically means they probably haven’t spent enough time studying the important material.

Students with impulsivity issues often focus on movement and tend to not pay attention to their learning. School desks and chairs can be modified to accommodate students with ADHD impulsivity issues. Resistance bands around the legs of the desk or the legs of their chair allow the student to kick and get their energy out. They use their muscles to push against the bands allowing them to satisfy their need for stimulation and maintaining focus in class.
An inflatable balance disc is another item that is great for students with ADD/ADHD. The balance disc is placed on top of their regular chair. Due to the instability of the balance disc, it forces the core muscles to be used to maintain proper posture. This in turn leads to increased focus when learning.
Sitting on an ergonomic stool is another way of actively sitting using the core muscles. Being active in this manner stimulates more of the brain-body connection. This can lead to more focus in the classroom.
An exercise ball that would usually be found in a gym is a great substitute for the traditional school chair. Sitting on this giant ball requires the student to sit in the proper posture to stay balanced. This forces them to use their core muscles. When students are using their energy to actively sit, they tend be more attentive and focused.
