Peek at the Week: April 1


In his sonnet “On the Grasshopper and Cricket,” John Keats wrote, “The poetry of earth is never dead.”

Happy Monday, Wildcats! I hope you’re all enjoying the break! The weather might not be the ideal spring weather many of us are longing for, but I hope you were still able to breathe some fresh air, soak in some vitamin D, and enjoy the weekend.

And just think, it might be cool and rainy now, but in a few short weeks, all the flowers will bloom and everything will come alive once again. So, be grateful for the rain and the poetry it’s writing.

If you want to get some fresh air and take a break, Wednesday, Apr. 3 is National Walking Day. Walking is not only a great and relatively low-impact activity, but it’s also great for your mental health. So, whether you prefer to get your steps in on a treadmill or in the outdoors, you can celebrate by taking a walk. Even a short 15-minute walk could help you clear your head and feel refreshed.

If you want to partake in some more self-care, National Self-Care Day is this Friday, Apr. 5. Whether your best self-care takes the form of getting some extra hours of sleep, spending some quality time with a friend, going to the gym, or watching a comfort movie, Friday is a great opportunity to give yourself the TLC you deserve.

Friday is also National Dandelion Day. These little yellow flowers might be considered stubborn weeds to some, but they do remind us that springtime weather is right around the corner. If you’re longing for sunny days and warm weather right now, just look for the dandelions blooming.
