7 Main Laws to Prepare for the Winter Breakby Tom Jager blogger
Now, that it’s December already, for most of us it means that the holiday season is coming. But for students it first and foremost the time of their winter break! It’s an opportunity for them to forget about endless assignments and essays for a while, enjoy free time and plan their day as they want to.
Some of the students choose to travel, while others search for job opportunities or choose volunteer programs overseas in order to get more experience for their future jobs. Regardless of what you want to choose, winter break is the time when you should rest, relax and reconsider many things, as now you’re approaching your adult life with all its responsibilities and duties.
So here are 7 major laws to prepare for a relaxing, yet productive winter break.
Law #1: Stick to Your Routine
No matter what you’re about to do on your winter break, you should plan each day and stick to it. It’s easy to get carried away by the opportunity to sleep longer, but it can easily become your new habit and you have a chance to oversleep the first day of the second semester!
Manage your time over winter break by organizing your day to make it more productive and prioritizing the things you need to do right away. You can also try multitasking. After all, you have so much to do and so little time!
Law #2: Work on Home Assignments
What? More assignments? This might sound ridiculous, as you’re about to finish the semester and forget about homework for a while.
However, some teachers often give their students assignments for both winter and summer breaks. They might require reading some books or working on the projects related to their subjects. So, if your professors have chosen to load you with extra assignments, you will have to deal with it, said Peter from A-writer.
To figure out your studying schedule take a day off on the first day of winter break. Use this time to plan your studying and create a schedule which you will follow in order to complete the whole range of tasks. But don’t forget to relax! After all, it’s winter break!
Law #3: Do Your Job/Volunteering Search
Many students prefer not to waste time during the winter break and start searching for job opportunities during the semester. This allows students to get that desirable job experience for their resume and just shows that you’re a go-getter and not a time-waster.
There are multiple job opportunities for students. You can take some shifts at a local cafeteria, movie theater or clothing shop. Or you can enroll in some online freelance jobs like customer support. Also, you can try out some volunteering opportunities, which is more flexible and is also a good catch for your resume.
Law #4: Look After Your Health
During the semester you probably don’t have much time to keep up with staying healthy. Many students complain that because of the lack of sleep and work overload their health starts to suffer.
Winter break is the ultimate opportunity for you to take care of yourself. It’s time to rewind and reboot your body. Also, don’t forget about exercising. Simple morning exercise is very beneficial: it helps you feel better, improves metabolism and just fills your body with energy for the day!
Law #5: Stay Active
Take the opportunity of having more free time and socialize! Now, it may seem weird, because you’ve had a lot of time to do that during the semester, as you constantly talk to your classmates.
Staying active here means to plan as many activities as you can and do something that you couldn’t do during the semester. Go visit your family, if you live far away. Meet your classmates from high school. Go visit your teachers. Write down all the ideas you want to do over the winter break during the semester. Make your winter break enjoyable.
Law #6: Work on Your Skills
During winter break you have time to improve any skill. Make a list of skills you want to improve and just follow a simple REPS rule: repeat, engage, be purposeful and strong. Whether it’s mastering a guitar or Adobe Photoshop, you have enough time to work on that. You just need your desire and motivation.
Law #7: Finish the Semester Successfully
Let’s finish up with this law: you must finish the semester successfully. Even though it’s hard to concentrate because of the holidays and vacation coming up, you need remain diligent and finish your studying. You don’t want to ruin your winter break with even more studying. So do your best to work hard during the semester and then reward yourself with some relaxing time during the winter break. It will be even more enjoyable because you know that you deserve it.
