April - Exercise
Making healthy choices when you’re sleep deprived can be tough. Research shows that kids who don’t get enough sleep have a harder time concentrating in school, can be irritable and their immune systems have a harder time fighting off illness. Use these tips for a better night’s sleep.
Apr. 23 - Apr. 29
Make it a routine – It’s easy to put off exercise when you don’t think you have time. If you’re an educator, try finding a few minutes between instructional time to get students moving. At home, parents can make a family walk part of your weekend routine or whatever time works for your family.
