Living Well Doing Well: Enjoying Spring Break

As the end of March approaches, Spring Break is right around the corner. For some people, it’s already started. For others, however, it’s not until the end of the month. Either way, it’s always essential that you make the best of your Spring Break. After all, one week goes by really fast. And before you know it, you and your spouse are crammed into a car with the kids and headed home, the vacation over. If you spend all that time preparing, it’ll be over before you even know it. Generally speaking, what you do during your break, usually determines where you are at the moment.

For example, if you’re living at home, you might go out with your family. If you’re at college and live in another state away from home, however, you might not even visit your family. For example, let’s say someone attended a college in Illinois, but their family lived in California. Most people probably wouldn’t even consider going home. With that said, regardless of where you’re at, what are some ways to make the best of your spring break? Overall, here are a few things to consider.

Plan Ahead of Time

Before even starting your break, you need to be planning ahead, especially depending on what you’ll be doing. For example, if you’ll be staying at home during most of your break, then you could plan as you go along. However, if you’ll be vacationing instead, that’s where you need to start planning ahead. Aside from buying your tickets, planning also involves budgeting. After all, vacations can be expensive, and you don’t want to waste all your money. If you’re going to be vacationing with your friends, then you should discuss it with them as well.

Don’t Focus on Schoolwork

If you want to truly enjoy your Spring Break, then you need to take the focus off of your work. Whether it’s a bunch of college assignments, or papers you have to grade for your students, you want to make the best of it by focusing on what you enjoy the most. We live in an age where most people feel like they always have to be busy with something. Many times even when we don’t have a lot of work to accomplish, we try to occupy ourselves with chores or daily tasks. It’s all part of the work mentality we’ve adapted. By taking all focus off your other tasks, not only will you realize you don’t have to be busy all the time, but you can enjoy your vacation to its fullest.

Take Memorable Photos

As another way to enjoy your Spring Break to its fullest, make sure to take plenty of photos. Whether you’re going to a restaurant or are vacationing on the beach, taking photos will help you to preserve memories that can be looked back upon years later. Not to mention that if you don’t take photos, you’ll barely have anything to remember. After all, what if ten years down the road, you and your family wanted to reminisce about vacations you’ve had together? If you haven’t taken any photos, you’ll only have faint memories to go by.

Use Social Media

Lastly, if you want to make the best of your Spring Break, make sure to use social media as well. Even after your break ends, why not share your events on Facebook or Twitter? Aside from giving your events more exposure, it’s a great way to share your experiences with everyone. After all, why should you and your family be the only ones who knows how much fun you had? If nothing else, it should be a collective experience.
