If you’re like me, you’ve been counting these last few days before school starts again. I love summer, but I also love the sound of an empty house occasionally! Get back into gear with our tips to get your school year started off right!
Sleep On It!
The hardest thing for my family is to get back into a sleep routine. Over the week leading up to the first day of school, we slowly inch bedtime a little earlier every night. It helps make the early wake up of Super Tuesday all the easier. And don’t think healthy sleep is only for kids, parents need it too, so make sure to exercise a little self-care in this weekend and the whole family will benefit.
Nom! Nom! Nom!
Getting a good amount of sleep also means not being up all night prepping a healthy breakfast. Woman’s Day has 49 Healthy and Kid Friendly Recipes to help make your morning run smoother – and yummier!
