Ways to Relax

The winter break is a perfect time for students to relax and have some “me time.” It’s nice to finally have some time off and not have a huge to-do list hovering above your shoulders. Having some down time is important as it helps to keep you from burning out. Here are some great ways to relax:

  • Read a good book
  • Catch up on some sleep
  • Have a nice warm bath
  • Watch a movie
  • Exercise
  • Do some yoga/stretch
  • Listen to soothing/relaxing music
  • Enjoy a cup of tea
  • Go for a walk
  • Take a few deep slow breaths
  • Count backwards from 10
  • Drip cold water onto your wrists
  • Write in a journal
  • Cuddle with a pet
  • Laugh
  • Talk to a friend or close family member
  • Colour/draw
