Take a Break this Summer

Dr Steven Koslov

While the majority of the year we are tied to the formal structure of school, team sports and lessons, the summer is an ideal time to enjoy outside physical activity, explore and learn new skills, cement family bonds, practice the skills of sharing and cooperation, and unwind. It is a great time to relax, enjoy each other’s company and learn to be present in the moment.

Turn off the TV, computers, personal games devices and even mobile phones. Lather up with sun block and get outside with the kids to enjoy the wonders of summer.

What summer activity does your family look forward to the most?
