Dr. Valeri’s Top Tips for School Success
Are you getting enough sleep? What about your teenager who needs almost 10 hours a day? Sleep rejuvenates us, and helps keep us from getting sick, too little and life becomes an overwhelming chaotic mess. Good sleep hygiene means regular patterns for bed time and plenty of time to “wind down” before sliding under the covers. Teach your children, and remind your teenagers about these good habits and daytime will be much more pleasant, and productive.
There is no doubt breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eating a healthy breakfast improves concentration, and results in higher test scores on both reading and problem solving exams. In addition, kids who eat breakfast regularly are less likely to become obese. The benefits continue for adults where a healthy breakfast is associated with lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol. So try and sit down in the morning to start things right as a family, and the rest of the day will be better.
Vaccines Save Lives
Simple, but true. Shots are not fun, and no one likes them. However the statistics for Colorado are truly concerning. As of 2008 only 79.4% of Colorado kids are fully vaccinated, and in that very same 2008 year 1,162 children had to be hospitalized in Colorado for vaccine preventable illnesses. More than 23% of those hospitalized were between 6 and 20 years old. If you have questions, Let me know. Everyone should feel informed and comfortable with the decisions they make to care their children.
Germ Free is Key
Whether we are going back to school, or just starting for the first time – school time is exciting! New faces and old friends are everywhere. Unfortunately that also means we are exposed to lots of new germs. Protect your kids and family by using a simple water free hand sanitizer right before and right after school, not only does it work when you first put it on, but it keeps on working for several hours which can make a huge difference this cold and flu season.
