Winter is ending, the sun is shining and while many students are taking off to warm locations for spring break, others are going home. Here are some suggestions to keep busy.
The first, and arguably one of the most important things a college student can do while staying at home over break would be to catch up on some sleep. Sleep restores a person’s energy and fights off illness and fatigue by strengthening the immune system.
The average adult needs seven to nine hours of sleep a night according to the National Sleep Foundation. Besides, that is what a spring break means to students: Relax, relax and relax some more.
After you have finished catching up on some ZZZs, rejuvenate the body’s strength by partaking in healthy exercise. Merely getting outside for a bicycle ride, a run, playing a pickup basketball game or getting to the gym can improve a person’s energy.
Enjoy the warm weather and sun after all these cold months by taking a simple stroll around the neighborhood.
In addition, one could decide to try something new. This could be something that has been on the backburner for quite some time. It could be a task or a book you wanted to read, but have been putting it off due to the copious amount of school work associated with college.
Spring break can also be the best time to watch all those blockbusters or Oscar winners you have been dying to watch. College students tend to watch a lot of movies at home. Especially with the recent advent of Netflix, why would a person not binge on a couple of new TV series or movies?
Finally, one of the least favorite spring break activities, but possibly the most productive would be hitting the books hard. A person could either catch up in some classes or further their studies. Spring break can be used as a time to get ahead, and then enjoy relaxing with friends instead of scrambling to meet deadlines later.
