Don't Forget to Play

Do you remember recess time when you were in grade school?  That brief pause helped you get through a full day of learning.  Why should this practice end when you grow up?  Here are some reasons why you should not forget to play:
  1. Adult recess time allows your brain to take a break and recharge.
  2. When you take time to relax you actually accomplish more.
  3. You feel good when you rest.
  4. You have more energy.
  5. Your alertness increases.
Give yourself a break today.  Fifteen minutes of recess will make a huge difference.  If you are experiencing a challenging day, add a second break during the second half of your day and go outside.  Stay away from your smart phone and just relax.  Let me know if you still have adult recess time.
