Let’s Live Well Back to School Wellbeing Hacks Insights and Tips
Back to School Readiness Contributes to your Child’s Academic Success
Approximately 55 million students in the U.S. will head back to school soon. This year they will mostly be back in person. From dealing with first-day jitters to shopping for school supplies, to concern over post-pandemic health, it’s an exciting and chaotic time.
Most noteworthy, reports show a correlation between the start of school and student performance. Furthermore, early positive school experience leads to better emotional wellbeing and academic achievement. So, the pressure is on for parents to get back to school health wellness right.
These planning tips can go a long way toward wellness in your back to school readiness
1. Bedtime Health Routine
Start the school night bedtime routine at least a week before the first day. It gives your child’s body clock time to adjust when there are fewer distractions. Plus, good rest the night before will eliminate stressful mornings on school days.
2. Wellness Breakfast
Fuel them up with a protein-packed breakfast like a dairy-free Mooala Bananamilk and peanut butter smoothie. Kids and teens who have a good breakfast are more focused, perform better in school and make healthier food choices throughout the day. Without breakfast, kids (and their parents) can become irritable, distracted and tired.
“Smoothies using plant-based beverages are a great way to send your kids off to school,” said Mooala Founder and CEO Jeff Richards. “Our beverages are made from real, simple organic ingredients. Our Original Bananamilk doesn’t include any added sugar – perfect for a breakfast smoothie that’s easy to prepare, delicious and packed with tummy-friendly nourishment to keep kids going all morning.”
3. Meal Planning Readiness
Involve the family in meal planning for the week ahead. This way everyone gets to request a favorite dish and the detailed shopping list makes getting in and out of the grocery store more efficient.
4. Home Work Life
Designate a homework station. Someplace quiet is best, without easy access to games, smartphones and the TV. Set aside time each day when you can be available to help them. When school work becomes a family activity instead of a solo chore, kids are more engaged in what they’re learning.
5. Planning with Technology
Consider using an app to create a family calendar for tracking everyone’s deadlines, activities and commitments. Getting your kids to choose which app you use will help them take ownership of their assignments. Some apps even feature reward systems to motivate family members to complete tasks.
6. Planning Against Germs
Germs show up to school just like your kids do, so schedule those annual exams. Be sure your children are up to date on their vaccinations, and talk with your pediatrician about ways to keep them healthy throughout the year.
In Conclusion, the best way to set your family up for a successful school year is to get organized.
