Saying “so long” to summer isn’t easy, especially if you have kids in school. With class back in session, it can take a few weeks to readjust to routines that you’ve let slip over the summer. Try these 3 ideas to ease into the fall:
1. An apple for teach; an App for you
Busy parents will appreciate these back-to-school apps. Juggling schedules? The myHomework Student Planner and Sunrise apps have calendars that sync to other platforms to help organize multiple schedules. Need an electronic tutor? Duolingo and ToDo Math make learning languages and arithmetic all about fun and games.
2. Fall in love with fitness
Don’t wait until New Year’s resolutions to get back in the gym. Fall is the perfect time to get re-energized about getting in shape. And it goes without saying that regular physical activity helps you reduce stress and boost your immune system, which is especially important with cold and flu season around the corner.
3. Stay classy
You’re never too old to go back to school! Beginning in September, many local communities offer adult personal and professional enrichment courses in the evenings. Try a healthy cooking class or learn a new language. Studies show that being a lifelong learner can help us stay mentally sharp as we age.
