Take a break this Christmas - Thistley Hough Academy

It’s nearly the end of 2020 and we’ve had lots of changes this year, but we hope you’ve still learned lots of new and interesting things.

Make sure you take the time to look after yourself and have a good break this Christmas. It’s really important to practice self-care as it helps you to stay healthy and be happy.

We hope you have a lovely Christmas break and enjoy the time at home with your family. Here are a few things we enjoy doing over the holidays to keep us calm and relaxed, why not try them for yourself:

Watch your favourite films
What Christmas film do you watch on repeat? Christmas Chronicles, Home Alone or even The Grinch. Get into the festive spirit and relax with some snacks. It doesn’t have to be Christmassy, anything that will make you laugh or smile while you watch it is the perfect solution to feeling relaxed.

Try something new
You might not always have the time to try new things when you’re juggling your schoolwork but now’s the perfect time. Whether it’s baking, crafting or a new football trick, having fun trying something new and enjoying yourself is a great way to stay relaxed and happy during the winter break.

Stay active
It’s proven that staying active increases the hormones in your body that help you to feel happy. If your struggling with your emotions and feelings at any time during the holidays, try a quick walk or yoga session and see if it helps to lift your spirits.

Keep to a routine
Everyone loves a lie in when it’s the holidays, especially in winter when the weather’s not the best. Just don’t forget to start waking up a bit earlier ready to fit back into your school schedule when it’s time to come back!

We hope you have an amazing Christmas break, we’re so proud of how well you’ve all adapted to the changes that have happened this year and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2021.
