Back to School

This year is different, and that different is unique for everyone. The past six months have blurred by, and with back-to-school upon us, navigating these differences is still challenging. Luckily, Pura has a way for you to make the differences you face easier and better while we adjust to the “new normal”! Read on to learn how to make the most of this coming season!

Whether you and your family are in the classroom, homeschooling for the first time, or just trying to work from home, you can still focus and have a great learning year that’s productive and worthwhile. We’ll let you in on the secret—it’s all about your environment. Home scenting isn’t just about creating good smells, it’s about setting the mood for what you want to accomplish or feel, and that will change it all during these times!

Learning From Home

For those that are going to be doing virtual school this semester, we know how tough it can be to keep the focus from your couch. Take these learning from home tips into consideration while you figure out what’s happening next!

Create a clean, calm environment. A good feeling starts with a smell, use your keenest sense to determine how your body feels. Times are stressful, but you can begin to take that away with some of the best home fragrances like Simply Lavender, Yuzu Citron, Amalfi Lemon and Mint, and Tuscan Neroli. Fill your smart diffuser with stress-free fragrance to set the mood well into the semester.

 

Stick to a schedule. Wake up at the same time each morning, and get to class on time! When you settle into a routine, it’s easier to stick with it and make sure things are happening productively. Handle the day like you would if it was normal, get up out of bed, and have a nice meal to begin your school day!

Schedule your day

 

Get fresh air and plenty of other things in. Open the windows to keep your home from getting stuffy, schedule walks and times for exercise into your day, and don’t forget to relax and socialize; however socializing looks for you. The only way to ease stress and anxiety during a pandemic is to let yourself have fun, de-stress, and be ‘normal’ at least one time a day.

 

Kids Studying

In-Person Learning

Those going back to in-person learning might feel a whole different type of stress or relief, and we will help you feel prepared for going back, whether it’s you or your kids who will be there!

 

Sanitize and relax. Keep your house clean, wear masks, and get your kids in healthy hand-washing habits. After you’ve done all you can do, breathe and let go of fear and worries, because it’s good for people to be around other people!

 

Breathe

 

Build strength at home. Practice and build good health habits, but also create an environment where you or your family can come home to and feel relief, while also being productive. Develop a great study space and a welcoming atmosphere in your home with scents like Volcano, Sea Salt Grapefruit, Bamboo, Havana Vanilla, and Pumpkin Chai. With these scents in your Pura air freshener, homework will be easier, and moods will be better.

 

 

Be involved, but not overbearing. Especially with younger kids, teachers are highly engaged and will be doing everything they can to keep their classes clean and their kids safe. As a parent, it’s essential to be involved and know how things are going, but also to let teachers do their jobs and take the stress down. You can’t control the environment teachers create, but a Pura diffuser does make a great gift and is perfect for the classroom!

 

Parenting

 

In the end, whatever becomes normal for your life this semester will be great! You can create the atmosphere in your home and wherever you go to be productive and safe, starting with clean, fresh scents! Stay positive and get back in it, and smell the life you’d like to create!

How are you adjusting to the "new normal"?
