Rest: 11 Suggestions


Not sure what to do during a rest break?  Here are the 11 suggestions:


~Write short essay on a topic as if it was for a blog post or a journal entry;

~Compose a poem–funny or serious–for a friend or loved one;

~Gaze out the window and see animals or other shapes in the clouds;

~Draw a picture for your kids and post it on the refrigerator at home–just like you do for the pictures they draw for you;

~Keep a bottle of bubble solution handy and blow bubbles during your break;

~Tap out rhythms or beats;

~Slowly eat a piece of fruit that you like taking the time to describe to yourself the texture, the taste, the smell, the total sensory experience;

~Another way to eat the fruit slowly is to describe the full sensory experience using words that are new for you–ones that you wouldn’t typically use;

~Another variation of the fruit eating with descriptions exercise is using made up words that, to you, perfectly describe the sensory experience.

I liked the bubble blowing suggestion. Let me know which ones you like best.  Leave a note in the comments section below.  Thanks!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
