Why do we need a summer break? We need a summer break, because it gives us all a chance to recharge. Many people travel over break and find a multitude of benefits from their excursions from the norm. According to Larry Alton, there are five scientifically proven health benefits from traveling (https://www.nbcnews.com/better/wellness/5-scientifically-proven-health-benefits-traveling-abroad-n759631):

  1. Increased overall health.
  2. Decreased stress.
  3. Enhanced creativity.
  4. Increased happiness and overall satisfaction.
  5. Decreased risk of depression.

Take advantage of your summer breaks. See and do things that you would not ordinarily do during the school year. You will be glad you did!
