Things To Do If You Aren’t Traveling Over Spring Break

Sometimes the slopes and the beach just aren't for you; here's five things you can do instead.

Things To Do If You Aren’t Traveling Over Spring Break

  1. Catch up with your friends from High School

Even if you didn't go out of state for college, there's still no way you had time to keep in perfect touch with your friends from home. Spring break is the perfect time to catch up with them and form a deeper friendship that only comes with spending long periods of time apart.

2. Workout

It can be hard to start a workout plan in our busy lives, but if you have free time over spring break now is the perfect time! Start out small and by the end of the week find a set routine that you feel comfortable carrying out when you go back to school.

3. Go on a day trip to somewhere in your state

In Oklahoma, a popular day trip is to the Wichita Mountains. There you can hike, swim in the streams, eat delicious foods, and see wild bison. Wherever you are, there are places close by that you have yet to explore. My advice is to hop in the car, roll the windows down and see where the day takes you.

4. Plan

As someone who is very busy and can easily be stressed, I find that making schedules are very helpful for time management. Write down all of the upcoming events on a calendar that is easily accessed. Also, write down all of your upcoming tests and project due dates in a planner. This will help you to be organized and prepared for everything college throws at you.

5. Get Outside

Whether it's riding your bike around a local lake or getting some sun at the pool, being outside is sure to brighten your mood. Spending all day looking at social media and seeing people at the beach or skiing will only put you in a funk. Appreciate the place you in and learn to have fun with the company you have instead of the Instagram picture potential of the place you're in.
