For most students, this is the time to take a break from school, spend time with family and friends, and rest up for next semester. Whether you have a few days or a month off from school, be sure to use your time off wisely. Here are 5 ways to maximize your holiday break.
1) Search for internships
At school, you may be so focused on your classes, extra-curricular activities, and social events that you may not have had the time to sit down and plan for next semester or even the summer. Spend your holiday break looking for some internship opportunities so you can gain valuable experience in the future.
2) Read for pleasure
With all of those books you’ve been reading for British Lit and American History, you might feel like you can’t read anymore! Instead of reading something for school, read a book for pleasure over your break. It’s a nice break from the usual required reading.
3) Map your class schedule
Spend some time making sure you’re on track for your upcoming semester and future semesters. Check your graduation requirements, and make a map of the classes you need to take to get there. Your pre-planning will help you stay on course.
4) Do something cultural
See a play. Go to a museum. Visit an art exhibit. Use your time off to explore your interests while keeping your brain stimulated. As tempting as it is to play video games for a month straight, you’ll be happy you did something new.
5) Recharge your batteries
This one is important. After a long and busy semester, you need to relax a little bit! Get more sleep; eat healthy; exercise. Enjoy your time off and take advantage of it—next semester will be here before you know it!
