How to Keep Your Sanity with Back to School Season
It’s hard to believe that back to school season is here already. It’s amazing that I have not lost my mind yet. The kids are trying to adjust to their new schedules and I’m just trying to stay afloat. It’s amazing how much harder back to school can be on mom than on kids. Moms, these tips are for you. Learn how to keep your sanity with back to school season.
- Get up with the kids- Just as much as your kids need a routine, so do you! It’s super important that your kids get into a routine, but it’s also important that you do too. As much as I want to stay in bed, I always feel better when I get up and get moving the minute I hear my kids get up.
- Keep the schedule simple – Don’t kill yourself and the kids trying to get from point A to point B. This year—try to keep things super simple. Let your kids choose what they want to be involved in, but don’t overdo it. There is something to be said about a simple schedule!
- Take time for yourself – When the going gets tough, the tough take a break. Don’t burn yourself out trying to keep everyone happy this school year, it just won’t happen. A piece of truth that I stick by is to always take time for yourself. Taking time for yourself will help you be a better mom, wife, parent, and person.
- Spend quality time together – I think it’s so easy to forget that you’re a family when things get super busy. Set aside a night to have a family get together. Dinner, pizza, or a movie, whatever you choose, it’s about spending time together as a family.
