Summer is coming to an end. But, for some of us, it is also just starting.
For those of us who took spring and summer classes, we only get a two-week summer break. For those who only get two weeks for our summer break, it feels like you get just long enough to breathe and re-center ourselves before diving head first into the stress and craziness of the fall semester.
If this sounds like you and you don't know how to center yourself and relax before the craziness hits you like a brick here are some thoughts on how you can do that without breaking the bank.
1. Go to the beach with your friends.
your friends will make you feel better about everything and chances are you haven't really gotten much sun this summer if you have been in classes all summer
2. Practice self care
no seriously if you can do this you will be more relaxed for the upcoming semester
3. Get your planner
and have it already organized
4. Go to the bar on karaoke night.
after all you will probably laugh at some of the drunk people singing and laughter is the best medicine for everything.
5. Take a day or weekend trip to your favorite city
You will feel better after you make the trip
6. Take a trip home to see your family
especially if they help you stay grounded
7.Catch up on some sleep
because you know you won't be getting much again once the fall semester really gets rolling.
8. Stay away from your school as much as possible
You really only have 2 weeks left so why would you want to spend it on your campus when you could spend it doing something else.
9. Go to a concert or local show
everyone else you know got to go to a concert so why shouldn't you go to one too.
10. Check your email
you might have a professor email you with something that want you to have done for the first class and you don't want to start out behind.
11. Have a few days that you do nothing
seriously it will help you feel more relaxed when you start the fall semester.
12. Just be yourself
being who you truly are is the best way to get yourself re-centered before starting a new semester.
