Helpful Mental Health and Wellness Resources During Spring Break

  • Helpful Mental Health and Wellness Resources During Spring Break

    SpanishMental Health is Important

    Spring Break is usually associated with itineraries, socializing, and traveling — which can wear you out. Don't forget to take time to slow down and decompress:

    • Limiting screen time. A small digital detox can pay off big.

    • Cleaning out your social media accounts.Spend some time purging what you no longer find valuable.

    • Resting.One word: naps!

    • Getting fresh air. Even in the rain or snow.

    • Exercising. If you can combine exercise with fresh air, all the better.

    • Organizing. As you organize closets and drawers, find things to sell, donate, or trade with a friend.

    If you or a loved one experience difficult emotions as you slow down during Spring Break, you’re not alone.
