Eating healthy, well-rounded meals is important to academic success and proper development, but other factors play roles in these processes too! Here some quick back-to-school lifestyle tips.
1. Make sure your children (and you!) are getting enough sleep each night.
Adolescents typically need 8-10 hours of sleep each night while younger children need 10-12 hours each night.
2. It is recommended children actively participate in at least 60 minutes of exercise/physical activity daily!
Of course, recess time and after-school sports practices can contribute to this time. Physical activity can help children develop motor skills, social skills, and helps prevent development of chronic diseases.
3, Help your children build a regular homework routine, whether it is right after school or following sports practice.
Creating a designated space and time for homework completion can help your children focus and keep assignments organized.
