Annie Newman & Matthew Shaw

Spring break is here, and it's the perfect opportunity to take some time off and recharge your batteries. Whether you're a student or an adult, here are some simple ways to rest and unwind over spring break.

  1. Get outside: Spending time in nature is one of the best ways to relax and recharge. Go for a walk, hike, or bike ride, or simply find a quiet spot to sit and take in the beauty of the natural world.
  2. Read a book: Reading is a great way to escape from the stress of everyday life. Whether you prefer fiction or non-fiction, choose a book that interests you and allow yourself to get lost in the story.
  3. Practice mindfulness: Mindfulness is a technique that involves paying attention to the present moment without judgment. There are many ways to practice mindfulness, such as meditation, yoga, or simply taking a few minutes to focus on your breath.
  4. Connect with loved ones: Spending time with friends and family can be a great way to unwind and have fun. Plan a day trip or a get-together, or simply spend some quality time together at home.
  5. Take a break from technology: Technology can be a major source of stress and distraction. Consider taking a break from social media, email, and other forms of technology for a day or two to help you unwind and recharge.

No matter how you choose to spend your spring break, remember that the most important thing is to take care of yourself and do what makes you feel happy and relaxed. By taking the time to rest and unwind, you'll be able to return to your daily routine feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
