School got you feeling down? Take a break from your studies with these fun activities.

  1. Go to the Beach. Build a sandcastle. Read a book. Feel the lap of the waves against your toes as you let them wash your stress away.

4. Read a Book. Dive into someone else’s adventure and lose yourself in their story. Read in your favorite cozy place, whether it be in a hammock, on the porch, or in the park.

10. Treat yourself. Embedded in the wisdom Parks and Recreation has brought us throughout the years is the iconic ‘treat yourself’ saying. Whether you’ve made this a part of your daily routine or you are just hopping on the bandwagon, remember to celebrate ‘you’ every once in a while.
