Stress and anxiety


🌿 At the Luís Figo Foundation, we recognize that, just like adults, children can also be affected by stress and anxiety. Studies show that more and more children are facing emotional challenges, from school worries to social pressures. Therefore, it is crucial to promote peaceful and nurturing environments for children’s well-being. Here are some tips to help reduce childhood stress and anxiety and create calmer spaces:

Routine and Structure: Establish a consistent and predictable routine for children, with schedules for activities, meals, and rest. A structured routine helps children feel safe and confident, reducing anxiety.

Outdoor Time: Encourage children to spend time outdoors, where they can explore, play, and connect with nature. Exposure to natural light and fresh air can help improve mood and reduce stress.

Relaxation Practices: Teach relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, and yoga, which can help children calm their minds and bodies during stressful moments.

Emotional Expression: Create an environment where children feel comfortable expressing their feelings and concerns. Listen attentively and validate their emotions, helping to reduce anxiety and promote emotional resilience.

Clear Boundaries and Expectations: Set clear and reasonable boundaries and communicate expectations positively. This helps children understand what is expected of them and feel secure within those boundaries.

Quality Time: Reserve moments to spend quality time with children, where they can feel loved, supported, and valued. This strengthens the emotional bond and helps build a solid foundation for mental health.

By creating peaceful and nurturing environments, we are contributing to the emotional well-being and healthy development of children. Let’s work together to promote spaces where they can grow, learn, and flourish with serenity! 🌱💕 #StressReduction #ChildWellBeing
