Take Them to the Woods!

Parent Interventions

Is your kid struggling hard to concentrate? take them out to the woods. According to studies, when the children are exposed to nature, their skill sets get enhanced.

Nature has the magical power to increase attention and concentration. When we heard about saints and sages going to the forest to meditate, this didn't occur to us, right?

While adults exposed to parks, trees or wildlife have been known to experience benefits such as increased physical activity, stress reduction, rejuvenated attention and increased motivation, in children, even a view of greenery through a classroom window can have positive effects on their attention span, the researchers say.

There are enough studies which prove that  15 minutes of self-paced exercise can also significantly improve a child's mood, attention and memory.


Next time, when the class teacher complaints that your kid lacks concentration, just take him/ her to the woods!
