Take a Brain Break!

Brain breaks are small mental breaks designed to help you focus and reenergize. They typically get you moving, allow blood and oxygen to flow to the brain, and enhance energy and relaxation.

Sign up for brain breaks in July. The activities are random, and typically last five minutes. They’re also a lot of fun!
