In 2020, it’s Cruel to Deprive Kids of a Snow Day

It’s cruel to rob kids of a snow day because it taught us a very important life lesson:

That it’s OK to take a break.

It’s OK to not be grinding every minute of every day. This whole year has brought so many of us closer to things that are really important in our lives: our health and our families, just to name two.

We work all the time.

Why is health such a popular trend, at any time, but particularly now? Because people don’t know how to manage their health. They don’t know how to not immerse every facet of themselves into business, grinding forward for some imaginary prize they think will eventually come to them later in life.

Constantly grinding forward is not conducive to overall well-being.

People need to pause. They need to take time to stop, look around, enjoy, and relax.

The snow day taught us the importance of “self-care” even before “self-care” was a thing. It subconsciously taught us that stopping for a break is good.

That’s sage at a young age — the knowledge that stopping for a break is good.
