The new school year is right around the corner; in fact, it’s already started for some – which I still can’t believe.
Whether your little one is brand new to school or a seasoned veteran of the hallways – the first day of school is always a mix of emotions. For me it was always a blend of excitement, nervousness, anxiety, eagerness, and a little apprehension. All of which are totally normal feelings, but still can be difficult to handle all at once (especially as a kid).
Music is a great way to get in touch with your feelings – it is also known for reducing anxiety and increasing serotonin levels (which makes you happy). So playing music for your kiddos before the first day of school can really help them to manage all those crazy feelings they may be experiencing.
And since I make playlists for, just about, everything, I figured a back-to-school version was necessary – especially since I just suggested that everyone play music on the first day of school (or every day, I mean why not?).
So go ahead and rock out on your drive to school, sing along to some “car”aoke, throw in a little car dancing, have a party, celebrate – or don’t cause your kinds might be really embarrassed of you.
Regardless, you’ll have some good school-ish themed tunes to get you through that first day!
