Take a Break: Play with Fractals

 Fractals are repeated similar or identical patters, which can be found in nature, art, architecture etc. A never-ending pattern, a good example is a tree.

As you keep zooming in, finer and finer branches appear, all the way down to the smallest twigs.  Read more

 Looking at fractals is a great way to relieve stress. Some examples of fractals in nature-ocean waves, snowflakes, flowers, leaves, mountains. Mandalas are an example from the art world as are quilts

• Watch the clouds and notice patterns
• Take a walk in nature
• Visit a garden
• Blow bubbles. Don’t have bubble stuff on hand? Mix 2 cups warm water, 1/3 cup dish soap and ¼ cup corn syrup. No bubble wand? Check out a variety of options at Homemade bubble wands.
• Play with a fractal online (this is mesmerizing) 

Not interested in today’s activity, go to the Take a Break Pinterest and pick out something else.
