It seems to be a misconception that we upper school students have an overflow with time these days. In fact, school work is proceeding as usual. However, we all need a break once in a while so we’ve compiled a list of things you could do. Did you see Mrs. Wegdell’s tips on ManageBac? The Quirky Quibbler decided to look into some of our favourites and add some more ideas that you will hopefully find enjoy doing.
Go for a walk
The weather has been very nice these last couple of days but unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like it will continue that way. Since it is getting colder we might be tempted to stay inside but taking a walk will give you fresh air and some energy. If you don’t have your own dog to go on a walk with, ask your neighbours!
For those of you who don’t do this regularly, this is a great opportunity to get started. Check out the Harvard Health Letter to find out about the benefits of stretching.
Social distancing isn’t exactly making us happier. Dancing has proven to improve mode, act as a tool of therapeutic expression, social anxiety therapy and depression reduction. Release those endorphins with a quiet routine!
