LIFE HACK:

Headspace for Kids

WHAT:

The top rated meditation app now has a series geared towards kids.

Why I love it:

With sessions for kids of all ages (5 and under; 6-8 and 9-12), this app helps them get into meditation early. I love that there are themed programs that cover everything from sleep to kindness. It's the easiest way to get zen during the school year and you can do it along with them!

LIFE HACK:

Rockets of Awesome

WHAT:

Shopping for your kids clothes just got easier with this subscription service.

Why I love it:

Launched by our friend Rachel Blumenthal of Cricket's Circle, Rockets of Awesome is a subscription clothing service that makes shopping for your kids stress free and easy! Each delivery includes 12 hand-picked pieces (priced at $12-$26 each) based on what you (and your kids) like. You pay for only what you keep and deliveries are set at four times a year, so you're covered for every season. Added bonus: the clothes are cool, durable and comfortable!

LIFE HACK:

Amazon Prime

WHAT:

The fastest and easiest way to shop for school supplies.

Why I love it:

I can't live without Amazon Prime. I order 100% of my school supplies through it! I take the entire school supply list and put it straight into my Amazon cart. I love that it all arrives the next day with just the click of a button! So easy.

LIFE HACK:

Graze

WHAT:

A healthy snack delivery service.

Why I love it:

After a summer filled with ice cream cones bigger than my kids, it's time for a snack reset. Graze makes after school snack time easy and healthy. Pick from over 100 different snacks (trail mix, pretzels, nuts, granola bars and more) and get an assortment of snack size portions sent to your home weekly. If you find a snack you really love, you can even order them in bulk!
