You think you want 4 weeks off of school until you realize... what do I do when I don't have homework?
I was going to start this list with Hulu or HBO. Yeah, ha ha. Just kidding there's a lot of things you can do besides sit in front of your computer all day.
1. Play board games with family or friends
This is the time to break out Cards Against Humanity or What do you Meme? Or stick to more family friendly board games.
2. Go on a hike (weather permitting)
Even in the snow, you can go for a hike. Just bundle up!
3. Play tennis with some friends or family (indoor or outdoor)Giphy
If it's snowing outside this may not be the best option but you can always search for indoor courts near you.
4. DIY something!Giphy
My advice is to make candles. I did it last break and it was so fun! The materials are all cheap, they make for great gifts, and you save money rather than buying a ton. I made about ten of them all for $30. In some nice stores, $30 is one candle. But if this doesn't sound like fun to you
5. Make new playlists on Spotify for all of your different moodsGiphy
I always put off making them and just stick to my standard workout and chill playlists, but maybe it's time to expand. I recently made on that's perfect for singing along in the car to.
6. Take a cooking classGiphy
Sur la Table and Williams Sonoma offer cooking classes!
7. Watch the sunrise or sunsetGiphy
Get up early! You can nap right after because it's not like you have anything else to do.
8. Go to the gym!Giphy
Grab a friend or sibling and use those new Spotify playlists that you've created!
9. Start a journal.Giphy
It can be recounting dreams, it can be describing your day, or it could be just a random daily prompt. Pinterest has a lot of writing prompts that you've never thought of.
Some of the greatest activities I've done with my family have been getting involved with giving back. That's what the holiday season is about, after all.
My best advice is to think outside the box and do things that you never thought you would have time to do. Have a great break and even better spring semester!
