Although summer is full of opportunities to engage in fun and exciting adventures, it is important to be flexible with your summer schedule and include time for relaxation. Busy and strict schedules can cause stress and conflict within families, which can hinder opportunities for connection. We recommend trying to only plan one big activity per day and making sure to set aside time to relax. By setting aside time to relax, you can avoid the added stress of feeling rushed, over-committed, and exhausted. Relaxation time is also a great opportunity for family bonding! One great way to relax in the midst of summer activities or on a family vacation is to stay in and have a family movie or game night.
