Back to School Is on: Seven Tips to Keep You Mentally and Physically Happy (Really!)

School is back in session, which means so is the managing of our kids’ schedules and all that comes with the school year. And let’s not forget our daily lives which as much as we work for balance, there is that moment when we become worn out, and it’s not pretty. Like most parents, I try not to take sick days, and my sick days are reserved for my kids. This year, the youngest is going from daycare to pre-k, which, unfortunately, as I recall what I went through with my oldest means germs and sickness.

When the school year is happening, and you have a lot on your plate, this can all be challenging. Try going easy on yourself and seek the support you need to keep yourself in a good place. Remember it can be work at times, but with keeping your mental and physical health in mind, you can craft this year to be one of positivity.
