Sorry that I didn't post anything earlier! So since for most people its after school, I'll give you an after-school tip! When you get home, wait 15-30 minutes before doing your homework. It gives you a chance to cool off from school and calm down before starting your homework. If you have a lot of homework, take a few breaks in between each worksheet or subject.

         Foods to Help You Feel GOOD!

Oatmeal: Oatmeal has tons of fiber. It'll calm your tummy and your mind!

Blueberries: Eating tasty blueberries will improve your brain health!

Chocolate: This sweet treat stimulates endorphins, helping to perk up your mood! Remember: Dark chocolate is much more healthier (and delicious!) than milk chocolate!!

Green Tea: GT does double duty, easing nerves and boosting energy!
                    Great Stress Relievers!!!

Hey girls! Are you feeling stressed out about school, homework, friends or family? Then it sounds like you need some tips on how to relieve that unwanted stress!!

Feel Balanced: Tree pose helps you achieve balance physically and mentally. Stand up straight and bend one leg, putting that foot at your knee. With hands above your head, focus on feeling balanced on both sides of your body.

Release Tension: You can benefit and relieve stress even by simply stretching. Try reaching to touch your toes, then hold onto them for 30 seconds - it'll help you realease all that muscle tension.

Increase Energy: Inverting your head in the wheel pose (or backbend) can increase energy and pick up your mood. Try it by lying down with hands at your shoulders, then push up from hands and feet.

Get Grounded: Lotus pose is perfect for meditating. Keeping your spine straight will help you feel more grounded and relaxed, so sit cross-legged with hands on your knees.

Feel Powerful: Mountain pose helps you feel how strong and powerful your body is, even standing still. Stand up straight with your feet slightly apart and arms above your head, then close your eyes.

Calm Yourself: Feel the energy coming from your head
in child's pose - it'll help calm your brain and relieve stress and fatigue. Kneel down on your mat and spread your hands in front of you, as far as they'll go. When you're ready, lower your forehead on the ground.


School Tip #2! Are you taking your lunch to school? Make sure it's packed the night before so you don't have to worry about making it in the morning! Buy your lunch at school? Check the night before to see if you have enough money to last you today! ( Then tell Mom or Dad they need to add more money for the next days)

Each day before school, I'm going to give you a quick tip! If you can't bring a water bottle to school, drink a huge glass of water before you leave! For most people, it makes sure you aren't thirsty for a while and who cares if you have to go to the bathroom during school! But, if you have a limit on how many times you can go to the bathroom like us and can't bring a water bottle, only drink a little in the morning and maybe get a little more from water fountains in your school. Hope this helped and have a good day at school! ;D

Try this out on a friend and soon you'll be a braiding master!

1. Brush out a friends hair. Then picks up a bundle of hair where you want the braid to start. Separate the bundle into three equal sections.

2. Cross the right section over the middle. ( The right becomes the new middle section.) Then cross the left section over the new middle section. ( The left section becomes the new middle section.)

3. Tighten the braid by gently pulling the sections away from one another. 

4. Add more hair to the right section before you keep braiding. Lift a bit of hair from the hairline on the right side, and add it to the right section. Then braid your new right section over the middle section.

5. Lift a small section of hair from the hairline on the left section. Then braid.

6. Continue going back and forth to the right and left, tightening as you go.

7. End the braid at the nape of the neck, or do a traditional braid with the remaining hair. At the spot where you want the braid to end, tie off with an elastic.

8. Smooth out any bumps on the sides of the head by gently combing toward the braid. Done!
