You deserve this break. In fact, you need it. This time is about your needs.
You need time to recharge, relax, revive, rejuvenate. Self-care is critical, and is not selfish. If fact it’s one of the most unselfish things you can do.
Here are some ideas:
Don’t think about school. Come up for air. Relax. Unwind. Rejuvenate. Recharge. Let go of the agenda mindset.
2. Do what you love.
If you read or write over break, do it for pleasure. Do it for you. Read stuff you want to read. Write stuff you like to write. Take time to do other things that energize or stimulate you. Do your favorite workouts or sports. Dive into your hobbies. Watch some mindless movies. Do your thing for fun and relaxation.
3. Be present.
Take time for the most important thing in life, the people you care about. Really BE with them. Let go of distractions, (like technology) and engage with your family and friends. Be as present as you can be. This quality time is precious so don’t take it for granted.
4. If you MUST to do something for school, chunk it.
Plan a block or two that you will dedicate to these tasks. When you’re doing your task, focus on that one thing, do it in a large block of time and be done. When you’re done, DON’T think about it. Let it go and move on to what’s most meaningful in your life.
Have a fantastic break. You deserve it.
