50 Ways to Take a Break

50 Ways to Take a Break

There is nothing like a good ole’ quarantine to make you realize that sometimes you just need to take a break. I am a stay at home homeschool mom, business owner, wife, and homemaker. That is a handful and that’s not even all of me. How many of you are in the same boat?

Between homeschool, laundry, cleaning, working, and whatever else, my mind could use extra breaks and I know your’s could too! One of the most important things in the world to me is having a positive mindset. One way I keep a positive mindset is by taking breaks.

Today I want to share 100 ways you can take a break from your busy life. Even if that means for two minutes or thirty. Anything to get you up and away from your day to day task.

Don’t forget taking a break is a good thing!!! You deserve it!
