Whether you work, go to school or for many of us both, we can all agree this is a busy time of year. Between cramming for exams and the stress of the holidays this time of year can be especially draining. Whether you plan to travel the world, visit with family and friends, or watch your favorite TV series for 3 days straight it’s important to use your winter break to do things you don’t regularly have the time to do.
Catch up on Sleep. It is no secret that getting 8 hours of sleep every night is one of the best things you can do for your mental and physical health. At the same time that’s easier said than done. During your days off make sure to get those 8 hours of sleep in.
2. Schedule Necessary Appointments
Do you need to see the dentist? Have you got your hair cut in the last few months? Do you need any refills on prescriptions?
3. Binge Watch Netflix
Sometimes you just need to watch an entire season of Orange is the New Black.
4. Apply to Summer jobs
For many of us it can be hard to plan ahead for what we’re going to eat for dinner much less plan what we’re going to be doing 5 months from now. Use your break to update your resume and apply to jobs.
Finding the time to perfect your “bikini” body can be difficult. Play a pick-up game, hit the gym, or even go for a run.
When you already don’t have time to sleep and work out, reading for fun can be a foreign idea to you. Maybe there is a movie you liked that’s based off a book or maybe your favorite comedian released something new? Pick up a book and read!
Organize your fridge. Take the time to deep clean your bathroom. Go through your closet and give away clothes that no longer fit.
8. Get ahead
Create a to-do list for things you need to get done at work or prepare for your next semester of classes.
