Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don’t exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.

Activity Suggestion: Avalanche Tag

Materials Needed: None

Activity Description:

–  Select 1 student to be “it”, have them stand in the center of the gymnasium

–  The rest of the class is lined across one end line of the general space

–  The task of the students is to avoid the human “avalanche” located in the center of the gym and try to make it to safety on the other side

–  On go, students must run to the other side of the gym without being touched by the “avalanche”

–  If they are tagged, they must stand exactly where they were tagged, and help the “avalanche” in catching people.

–  The other “avalanches”, however, can not move their feet.

–  The game ends when everyone has been tagged.
