To help your child become an autonomous and resilient learner:
Be sure he spends time outdoors a few times a week, as it reduces stress and improves concentration.
End-of year exams are fast approaching, and they will inevitably be a major source of stress for most students. One very simple thing you can do that will benefit your child physically, emotionally and academically is to ensure that he spends time outside surrounded by trees and greenery. A recent review of hundreds of studies found mounting evidence “of a cause-and-effect relationship” between students’ performance in school and the time students spent in the great outdoors: Experiences in nature led to improvements in attention span, self-discipline and physical fitness, all while reducing stress.
In other words, to help your child be in the best possible shape for exams, get him away from his desk and his computer and into a park or forest. If you can’t get away from the city, consider walking in Summit Woods in Westmount, Mount Royal Park, the Morgan Arboretum, or any of the other nearby nature parks suggested here.
