Taking brain breaks are now more important than ever since distance learning has increased onscreen time and children are sitting for longer periods of time. Brain breaks are short one-to-two minute activities that give children a break from what they're working on. Research shows that a short and energizing burst of activity will send more oxygen to the brain and will help kids retain information better and increase focus and attention.
