What's the balance between work and play?

It has been proven that creating structure in your day reduces stress and anxiety, and taking action towards a goal builds confidence.

Short brain breaks during work time have been shown to have real benefits.

  • They reduce stress and frustration and increase attention and productivity.

The key is to take them before fatigue, distraction or lack of focus set in. For elementary-age children, that's typically after 10 to 15 minutes of work.

Below is a website that has fun brain break activities as well as other resources. Feel free to join your child in these activities to give them the dual benefit of family fun time as well!! Enjoy!
