Take a Family Break

Take a Family Break

Sometimes you need to take a quick break to help calm down and give your brain an opportunity to reset. That's exactly what WXXI's Family Breaks are!

WXXI partnered with University of Rochester Medical Center's Dr. Elizabeth Murray to create this series of Family Breaks - short, brain breaks that show grownups and kids how to de-stress and play quick games inside (or outside!). 

These special Family Breaks can be seen on WXXI-TV and WXXI KIDS 24/7 channels, as well as right here. WXXI Education has also pulled together some additional resources (below each video) in case you'd like to try some more connected activities. Check them out!

WXXI and Dr. Murray also created a sample set of Daily Routine Ideas to help you plan your day - check those out, too!
