Back-to-school season is back to business as usual for a lot of moms and dads, but for some it’s the very first time they will experience the madness that can be a school year! No matter who you are, the school year doesn’t have to be chaos, because we’ve got some of the best TITLE-tested tips and tricks for making the school year both healthy and stress-free for the whole family.
Meal Prep (for real this time!)
Meal prepping is always on our radar, and we’ve tried and failed multiple times at keeping up the routine. Will this be the year that you really take advantage of the benefits of meal prepping? It’s an obvious trick to guaranteeing healthy meals for lunch, but have you thought about meal prepping for breakfast and dinner as well? With earlier-than-ever mornings and late nights for sports and homework, having pre-made meal for breakfast and dinner is a sure win. You can make and freeze protein-packed omelettes for breakfast, or have a healthy crockpot dinner ready when you get home in the evening.
Write Down Everything!
A weekly or monthly calendar with every family member’s appointments, workouts, meetings, games and everything in between is one of the easiest ways to make sure you’re never late again (well, maybe not as much). A pretty wall calendar like this one will always catch your attention when you pass, or a digital app calendar can sync with your entire family’s phones and send alerts on the go!
Track Your Fitness
If you haven’t yet invested in this lifesaver gadget, a fitness tracker could be the one thing your cray-cray life is missing. Especially during the busy school year, it can be easy to fall off track on workouts and on sleep. These little guys will help you stay on track and motivated with a step counter, sleep tracker and more! Plus, who doesn’t like to see how many calories and how many steps they’ve tracked at each TITLE Boxing Club class?
