After working continuously hard all semester, winter break doesn’t seem to come quickly enough. But when it does arrive, it’s best to cherish that month or so of zero obligations and use that time to recharge. For students going traveling home or for those who live nearby, here is a list of five things to do during your winter break.

Spend time with your family

I know this doesn’t always seem appealing, and it may even be overwhelming during the holidays, but seeing your family will never be as easy as it is during your time off from school. After you graduate, you might regret the missed opportunities to spend real quality time with loved ones when you had the chance.

Relax

Take time to decompress and remove yourself from the stress of the fall semester. This could mean having a movie night or just catching up on lost sleep. You will thank yourself when the demands of spring come around.

Make some money

Time off means extra hours making extra money for your pocket. If you have a regular job, this is the perfect time to work more than you usually would and earn money to spend or save for the future.

Go on a trip

If you have the means, winter break can be a great space to take a spontaneous trip or visit somewhere you’ve never been. You can travel or even just visit your local museum, zoo, theatre or concert venue.

Embrace the snow (if it snows)

Usually, winter means the arrival of snow. We all know how heavy snow can be after a long winter of shoveling it, driving in it, and bracing ourselves against it, risking frostbite in all the while. But the first few weeks of snow can be exciting, and it’s worth it to embrace that grace period before the drudgery begins. Why not go sledding or ice skating or build a snowman!

Whatever you may choose to do on your break, just remember to enjoy it!
