  1. Go to Paramus Park, Palisades, or Garden State Mall. Walking around at any mall can get your mind off of school work and is a fun thing to do with friends! Lucky for us, these malls are not too far away.

  2. Go to a Pascack Valley sporting event like a Lacrosse, Baseball, or Softball game. Support our Pascack Valley sports teams by cheering them on and by wearing Valley apparel. Almost each day there is some type of game going on no matter the season.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   flickr/Daniel Foster                                                                                                                                                                                             
  3. Go for a run, walk, or workout to get in shape. There are many studies that say going for a run or walk can help clear a person’s head and relieve them from stress. Getting in shape by simply going for a run or walk can also help you create a healthy lifestyle for yourself.                                                                                                                                                                                                 flickr/Ginny 
  4. Go out to the movies with friends. Hasn’t there been a movie that you have been dying to see? Get a bowl of popcorn, put something comfy on, and watch that movie! It’s always good to let out one of those much needed laughs at funny scenes with or without friends in the movies.                                                                                                                                                                        Contributed by Rosemary Stanchack      
  5. Bake with friends at someone’s house. Have a baking party and play music while you do! As long as you have the recipe you need, go wild! Bake those sugar cookies and those double chocolate brownies that taste like heaven.                                                                                                   Emma Palamidis                         
  6. Hang out at Jack’s Café in Westwood with friends. Jack’s Cafe is a local place to eat for people living in Hillsdale and River Vale! You can chill out and do homework with friends, grab a muffin, or whatever you would like to eat! Jack’s Cafe is right in Westwood town, and neighbors Cold Stone as well.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Pixabay                                                              
  7. Have a lazy weekend and catch up on all the sleep you have been losing. Ever have a PJ kinda day? It’s always fun to be lazy in your pajamas every once in a while, especially when you have no other plans. Most importantly… catch up on all that sleep that you have been losing from those late night homework assignments.                                                                                                 Pixabay                                                      
  8. Hang out at the Starbucks in Hillsdale or Westwood with friends. How can you go wrong with iced coffee on a hot day? You can’t! Chill out with friends at Starbucks while doing homework or catching up on each other’s lives.                                                                                                 flickr/Global Panorama                                                     
  9. Watch This is us on Netflix. Ever watch or at least hear of This is Us? It is one of NBC’s top shows that is on Tuesday nights at 9pm. It’s a dramatic, happy, and family friendly show to definitely check out! If This is Us is not your kind of show, then find another show to binge watch!                                                                                                                                                                                                 Wikimedia Commons      
  10. Go hiking at the Ramapo Reservation. Fresh air is great to clear the mind after a hard week of school and hiking is great exercise! There are many routes that take you around the Ramapo Reservoir! Ramapo Reservation is only about 25 minutes from Hillsdale and River Vale.
