Martial Arts as Daily Physical Activity

Martial Arts as Daily Physical Activity

            Before the Stay At Home Order, most schools had children participate in what was called Daily Physical Activity. Daily Physical Activity, or DPA, was used to get children up and active while in the classroom setting. It has been show that physical activity can help promote mental function, so getting up to move for 20 minutes in the middle of class helps children burn off some energy and focus better for the next lesson. DPA also teaches children about exercise and helps to create a daily habit of getting up and moving to stay fit and healthy.

Routines - Shifting Into a New Normal

Posted: April 09, 2020

The recent closures of schools and businesses are widespread and have led to major disruptions in the daily routines of families.  Children are trying to adjust to doing school at home and parents are now trying to balance their new work from home life with their role as teacher to their children. To cope, it’s important for families to implement daily routines that incorporate school and work along with family time and hobbies.

Humans are creatures of habit and when our everyday lives are disturbed, we become anxious. For children, this anxiety often leads to behavior problems  which can create power struggles and difficulty completing schoolwork. To help ease these challenges, implementing routines will create a better balance and help parents manage expectations and stick to them. By doing this, children will have a greater sense of security and will be more likely to cooperate.
