This might not seem like something you want to do during your break but not only will it make you feel good, it could also help you figure out a future career path. Getting set up at a police agency, finance company or even an animal shelter will allow you to make connections with professionals while helping you realize what you actually like to spend your time doing.

Reading is a wonderful avenue to help you escape to a different world and keep your brain sharp!  Try out a book by a popular author, such as Harper Lee with Go Set a Watchman or a thriller like The Girl on a Train by Paula Hawkins. This will be a great way to relax, while still doing something productive!

Exercise

Exercise will help you feel healthy and confident heading into the New Year!  Even if the weather’s getting colder where you live, there are indoor options to exercise.  Try out a simple yoga routine to de-stress or use a milk carton as a weight to tone up. For those of you lucky enough to spend the winter months somewhere warm, take advantage with a run in the neighborhood or a game of tennis in the park!

Work Part Time

Working a part time job can be hard work but the benefits are surely more rewarding than doing nothing. Not only will you make some extra cash for holiday shopping or other expenses but you’ll also pick up some much needed communication and organization skills.

Spend Quality Time With Loved Ones  

It’s important to remember the purpose of a break and make sure to prioritize some quality time with your friends and family. Plan a game night with your family, meet a good friend for ice cream, or plan an outing to the movies! Whatever it is, remember, these people will always be there for you, so make time for them too!  

While it may be hard to imagine doing work during a break, it will be worth it in the future, if you take the initiative. Take advantage of local opportunities around  you and don’t just sit around the house for a whole month, trust us, there’s so much more you can be doing with your time!
