Back to school and routine

    Table of Contents

    Going back to school after months of being away from the classroom can be a daunting time for many students. While it may take a while to adjust to the new routine, it’s important to pay close attention to maintaining a regular schedule in order to maximize learning potential. One way to support this transition is by incorporating medicinal mushrooms into your daily routine. Medicinal mushrooms come in many forms, from powders to teas, and provide beneficial vitamins and minerals that can improve focus and concentration levels. With the right approach, your newfound routine will have you feeling better equipped to face the academic year head on.

    The Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms

    Medicinal mushrooms are a popular choice for students looking to enhance physical and mental performance. They contain essential vitamins and minerals that can give you the energy to make it through your day and keep your concentration and focus levels high. Also, they are packed with antioxidants that fight free radicals and other health threats, which means they are also beneficial for your overall physical health. 


    In addition, medicinal mushrooms are linked to mental and memory benefits. As students enter the classroom once again, mushrooms may help improve cognitive performance by providing energy boosts and heightened focus and concentration levels. As a result, students can look forward to increased productivity and success during the school year. 


    Hifas da Terra offers  2 products in the range that are designed for children and they are Dr Immune 5 and Dr GB.

    Setting a Routine

    Setting a routine will help you ease going back to school and help you throughout the year. Start by setting a regular sleep schedule that allows you to get the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night. This will help you feel well-rested and energized in the mornings, enabling you to make the most of your classroom time. 


    Next, take the time to plan out your day. Write out your to-do list in advance and make sure to schedule in time for breaks. Doing so will help you prioritize tasks, especially when those list of assignments start piling up. Furthermore, make sure to leave yourself ample time to study so that you can confidently take on the year ahead

    Also, take the opportunity to practice new ways of studying. Try setting aside specific days for reading and studying so that you can stay organized and avoid cramming for big tests. And remember to take breaks throughout your study session and focus on something calming, like stretching or listening to music, in order to maintain a clear head.

    Having a Balanced Diet

    Having a balanced diet plays an important role in keeping your energy intact. When preparing for the school year, stock up on healthy snacks and meals that will give you the sustenance to make it through the day. Start by measuring portion sizes and eating plenty of vegetables, grains, and proteins.


    1. Limit your intake of processed foods and opt for whole foods instead. 
    2. Drink plenty of water each day to help keep your body hydrated and energized.
    3. Experiment with different recipes to keep meals and snacks interesting.
    4. Incorporate foods from all food groups in your diet to maintain nutritional balance.
    5. Fill up half of your plate with vegetables to get adequate amounts of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. 
    6. Include healthy natural fats like avocado, olive oil, and nuts into your diet for an extra boost of energy.
    7. Reduce your sugar intake and substitute it with natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup. 
    8. Choose lean protein sources like chicken, fish, and legumes for maximum health benefits.

    Getting Enough Sleep

    Being sleep-deprived can have serious consequences on your academic success. Setting an early bedtime is key to ensuring you get enough sleep each night. Consider setting an alarm to remind yourself when it’s time to head to sleep, and turn off all electronic devices at least an hour before you plan to do so. Try to make it a routine to read before bed as a way to relax and unwind, which will help you fall into a deeper sleep. By implementing these principles, you can increase your chances of getting the quality sleep needed to stay productive and on top of your studies.

    Making Time for Exercise

    It can be easy to focus all your attention on studying and forget about physical activity, but it’s important to prioritize exercise when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Not only does exercise help you stay focused and alert, but it also aids in digestion and helps to melt away any stress you may be carrying. The type of exercise you choose does not need to be too strenuous; simple activities like walking or yoga can be just as effective when it comes to boosting energy levels and productivity. Incorporate medicinal mushrooms into your exercise routine by making them a pre or post-workout snack; they can help improve endurance and blood circulation.

    Mindfulness Practices

    Mindfulness practices can be a great way to unwind and help manage stress. Start by incorporating moments of reflection into each day. Spend some time focused on your breath and be mindful of both physical and emotional sensations in the body, as this can provide psychological and health benefits. Consider taking a few minutes to practice gratitude each morning, and document any progress each day. This will help keep you motivated and engaged in each page of the school year.


    As you take on the school year, it’s essential to take the time to establish a healthy and productive routine. Integrating medicinal mushrooms into your schedule can help provide a source of energy, focus, and improved productivity. Moreover, focusing on a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and making time for physical activity and mindfulness practices can help ensure you have the tools to maximize success during your academic year. With these strategies in place, along with the many benefits of medicinal mushrooms, students can look forward to a successful and enjoyable year.
