Students have been working hard and deserve a break, but there are also other reasons as to why they need the time off.

Why Spring Break Is Important

Everyone needs spring break. No matter your age, the time away from thinking hard is much needed. You need the opportunity to recharge your brain and your body. Your brain needs a chance to recover from all of the knowledge it has gained and your body needs to recuperate from the sleepless nights and the toll that stress has had on it. The regular things in life can become old really quickly and to have a fresh view of your daily life, you need to be able to step back from it. There are also students who are extremely far from home and need the opportunity to see their families. However, Spring Break is not just for the students, but for the faculty as well. They need the time off and away from the students as much as the students need time away from the faculty members.

Spring break is also beneficial to your mental health. Staring at the same people and the same rooms for too long will make anyone lose their minds. Being able to step away from your stressful life at school can help you maintain your sanity as well. Stress is actually good for you but too much is detrimental. Having that week off to just relax and get your life together is what makes it possible for students to return afterward and be successful. As well, faculty members are ready and in need for a break. They have to deal with making tests and preparing lectures while catering to student needs on a seemingly 24/7 basis. They need time to recover their energy from sleepless nights and they deserve to have time where they aren’t grading or preparing for class.

By the time the break comes around, students are mentally prepared for time off of learning. Only so much knowledge can be crammed into a brain at once. Spring Break comes at a time where students can head to the beach and spend time with their families. If students are in college, they do not have the opportunity to get to see their families as much as they used to. The break allows them to catch up and spend a lengthy amount of time with their folks and kin. International students even get an opportunity to return home and see their families. Being so far away from home and not being able to use the shorter breaks to go back makes Spring Break an important time for them.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?

14470

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
