"Wake your child up by drawing back the curtains and letting in sunlight."
I am saying this more and more at my consultations with parents who are trying to manage cranky children at home.
Isolation because of the pandemic has been around for too long now.
In many studies people have reported feeling confused because they feel that time is moving slowly and fast at the same time.
The day seems to drag on... But the weeks and months are flying by... A lot of people have admitted.
Adults are able to put this feeling of confusion into words... But children can only show this through cranky behavior.
There are many ways to get past this challenge.
And one of the important ones... Is to wake up to sunlight streaming into the room.
Large windows that bring in lots of light is something I recommend looking out for as one of the first features in a house that a family is planning to buy.
Because daylight is an important physiological requirement that will ensure happiness in the house.
How big are your windows?
How do you wake up every morning?
How does it makes you feel?
