The transition from summer to back to school season can be a chaotic time for both children and parents. Stores are packed with back-to-school sales, vacation dwindles to an end, and routines are set in place for the school year ahead.

They go from constant play and rest to learning and remaining sedentary for six hours a day. With these three tips, both you and your child will be fully rejuvenated and prepared to tackle the new school year in a healthy, mindful manner.
