2/ Pack your bag the night before
The typical chaos of the morning makes it difficult to prepare everything on the D-Day. Due to morning rush, you might want to prepare your bag the day before (laptop, pens, sport clothes, masks – Need a mask? Get yours here) It will help you and your family to think through what is going on the following day. Also, make sure you prepare your clothes for the next day for a peaceful morning.

3/ Sleep well
Holiday season and long summer nights might have changed our sleep habits. We go to bed late, have heavy dinner enjoying the warm nights of summer. When back to school, we want to go back to a restful sleep routine, to be fully energized on the day after.
Make sure you set up a sleep time, avoid screens at least 1-hour before going to bed and have relaxing activities before going to bed. This will help you to fall asleep quickly. Make sure you sleep enough time to help your body to recover.

Waking up at the same time everyday can be helpful for your body without the need of snoozing multiple times. Set your alarm, do physical activity, have a feeding and healthy breakfast, get your family ready and you have a perfect start for a perfect day. No stress, everything going smoothly
5/ Sign up for afterschool activity and get your gear ready
