It’s that time of year again, when millions of kids take out their backpacks and begin their first day of school. First-day of school outfits have been chosen and a new routine starts up. No matter the age of your child, you want them to have a healthy and successful school year. Keep reading to see tips on how you can make this happen.
1. Reset your sleep schedule
If your child was staying up late every night in the summer, it will not be easy going to sleep early. Sleep routines are key to a child’s health so make sure to ease them into a healthy bedtime. This means having a no-electronics rule before bed, which will allow your child to fall asleep quicker.
2. Keep a family calendar
It may be hard to keep track of everyone in your family’s schedule so stay organized. Get a shared family calendar that will show everyone’s assignments, practices, and appointments in one place. You should also think about making a “to-do” list each morning so you may stay on top of things. By having all of your tasks organized, you can reduce any confusion your family members may have regarding your time schedule.
3. Set goals
It is recommended to set goals besides achieving good academic scores. This means setting goals towards completing chores and other household activities. Give your child tasks to complete such as washing the dishes, doing the laundry, or simply just making their bed. Having a multiple types of goals set allows your child’s mind and body to get the exercise it needs to stay active and healthy.
With all of these tips in mind, send your child off to their first week of school happy and healthy! But do not forget that they have all of their vaccinations required. Make sure to contact a medical professional to set up an appointment and contact Cosmo Insurance Agency to receive health coverage.
