A Kick-Ass Guide to Easing Back-to-School Stress

Schools BACK

Alright, buckle up folks! It's that time of the year again—back-to-school season. New notebooks, renewed friendships, and the promise of academic adventures are on the horizon. But let's be real, it also brings a potential shitstorm of stress and anxiety. In this blog, we're going to explore the challenges faced by both parents and students and unleash a kick-ass, no-nonsense approach to flick the stress that comes with it all.

We'll dive into emotional and spiritual tools, including grounding practices, affirmations, oracle cards, essential oils, and the comforting energy of specific shaped crystals like worry stones and tumble stones.

Parental Perspective:

Parents, you're the real MVPs, juggling schedules, extracurricular activities, and the never-ending list of school supplies. It's time to take a moment, ground yourselves, and say, "I've bloody got this!" Incorporate grounding practices into your daily routine, because let's face it, you're gonna need some damn stability.

Now, repeat after me: "I am a fucking BOSS at anything I chose to do" - Throw in a power pose for good measure—it's scientifically proven to boost confidence. Affirmations, people! Use 'em liberally.

Student Perspective:

Hey, students, we feel you. New challenges, new teachers, academic pressures—sounds like a blast, right? To navigate this maze, let's spice things up. Incorporate affirmation cards into your morning routine. Draw a card, read it, and declare, "Yes I FUCKING can!" It's like your personalized pep talk from the universe.

Before you step into that school chaos, ground yourselves. Picture yourself as the creator of your own story. Take a deep breath, visualize stability, and whisper, "I can handle any shit that comes my way"

Combining Forces: Emotional and Spiritual Tools:

Now, let's amp up the vibe. Combine grounding practices, affirmations, oracle card readings, and essential oils for a bombastic approach to back-to-school stress. Picture this: morning grounding, sassy affirmations, a whiff of "calm your tits" essential oil blend, and a pocket full of crystals. You're practically a warrior going into battle, but, you know, a chill, zen warrior.

And speaking of pockets, sew some cheeky hidey pockets into your backpacks or jackets. Fill 'em with worry stones or tumble stones because, guess what, you've got a secret weapon against stress right at your fingertips. Sneaky, huh?

Fun and Friendly Tips:

  1. Morning Battle Cry: Have a family morning battle cry where everyone shouts an empowering phrase before stepping out. It's a fun way to pump up the energy and set a positive tone for the day.

  2. Stress-Busting Playlist: Create a stress-busting playlist filled with your favorite tunes. Blast it on the way to school or work to infuse some extra badass energy into your day.

  3. Crystal Power Pockets: Tumble stones or worry stones are easy access to the "feels". It's like having a superhero sidekick right at your fingertips. Our senses are way underrated, "feeling" is our biggest asset and also our biggest trigger when we are living  this crazy life thing. Crystals bring all the good feels and little stones are easy to rub between our fingers to bring both the physical and metaphysical "FEEL" in an instant.

The Short Story:

As the school year unfolds, let's kick stress's sorry ass to the curb and embrace the chaos with a grin. Grounding practices, affirmations, oracle cards, essential oils, and special crystals are your arsenal of awesomeness. Here's to a kick-ass, stress-free school year ahead. Own it like the rockstars you are!
