I know what you’re thinking… destress my kids from summer? Well, summer break can be taxing and back to school adds a lot of pressure and anxiety on already exhausted kids. Setting them up for a successful start to a new school year is crucial, so I’ve compiled a few suggestions on how to shake off summer and get ready for school!
1. Get Moving
Exercise is one of the best destressers for adults, so naturally, moving their bodies is just as helpful for kids!

The outdoors is also a natural destresser, so load up the kids and check out one of the awesome outdoor areas in our city.
3. Use Their Minds
Help your kids stretch their mind muscles before school starts in one of these fun ways.
4. Back To School Shopping
Let’s face it, fresh gear is the best way to make school exciting, so let’s support some local businesses while shopping!

Kelly Yale is a long-time resident of Fishers (she’s lived here since she was 12!) who lives on the east side of the city. She loves hiking in parks, cooking and trying new restaurants, visiting the Fishers Farmers’ Market, and spending time with her family. Wife and daughter of small business owners, she’s passionate about local businesses and loves exploring shops around the City. She is vegetarian and tries to avoid plastic and waste as much as possible, along with buying secondhand instead of new. Her favorite thing about Fishers is experiencing all of new things that it has to offer since she was a child, while still being able to reminisce on her childhood memories here. She has a 9 year old daughter and welcomed a baby boy in October. Follow her on Facebook and Instagram.
