Summer Activities to stay Mentally Healthy
This week, students will be discussing summer plans and goals in their last advisory class. Summertime in Alaska is beautiful, unique, and short! It’s easy for kids to fall into bad habits, which makes it ever so much harder to come back to school in August, so here are some suggestions for your students to stay mentally healthy this summer:
Find a routine
Make a summer bucket list and complete it
Learn how to make your own breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner
Get outside every day, even the rainy ones
Read a book or two or more!
Connect with a friend from STrEaM
Take a hike
Enjoy a view
Make a summertime music playlist
Clean out a closet, garage, or shed
Practice a skill like coloring, drawing, playing an instrument or sport, sewing, baking, etc.
Go for a bike ride
Grow a plant or help with yard work
Give back to the community like picking up trash in parks or along sidewalks
