Tips for Getting ready for School
Don’t worry, summer isn’t over yet, but it is a good time to start thinking about getting ready for School. Preparing for the school year is a perfect time to make sure your kids are looking their best.
1. For starters, getting a haircut or a new hairstyle is a must. Then, new clothes, new shoes and a new backpack. If your child doesn’t have to wear uniforms, it’s important to know what’s “in” and what is not. Make sure you check out the latest style before you go shopping.
2. Teenagers want to have clear skin. You, as a parent, should want to help your teenagers to have self-confidence. If they are experiencing problems with acne, it’s best to get a jump-start on controlling it. Don’t wait until the acne is out of control. Make an appointment right away with the spa to discuss specific facial options and treatments.
Make facials part of your child’s “getting ready for school” experience. Not only will they have more confidence, but they will also feel and look better.
3. School supplies. Many schools give you a list of what the kids will need for school supplies. Do not over spend! Buy only what they ask for.
4. Remember a nutritious and delicious diet takes planning and commitment and not just for you. Your student athlete may not be thinking about returning to the field but perhaps the return to the gym may not have crossed their minds quite yet. Think ahead and plan healthy meals for you and your kids. Include vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Toss in some lean protein, nonfat dairy, healthy fats, and an occasional dessert so they are good to go. For beverages, it’s water and more water. It will keep them hydrated throughout the day and doesn’t put on unwanted pounds.
