How to Treat a Bad Case of the Winter Break Blues

17 Dec

Even though I’m sure that we’re all grateful for time off from school, sometimes too much of a good thing leads to boredom and the Winter Break Blues set in. What makes Winter Break unique is its length. Winter Break is a whopping 25 days long! 25 days. That’s almost a month! The first couple of days are all fun and good, but what are you going to do when the mind-numbing boredom sets in? Because we care, we have compiled a short list of things to do to stave off the Winter Break Blues.

1. Read some books. 


It’s hard to be your bookworm self during the semester because professors have already set up an extensive list of the materials that they want you to spend all of your time reading. During these next 25 days, you are your own master, read what you want and only what you want!

2. Cook and eat some yummy food. 


There’s no better time than the holidays to start cooking up a storm. Even if you don’t celebrate the holidays, there’s still tons of yummy food around just waiting for you to take the initiative. With nearly a month of vacation ahead of you, you’re going to need something to eat at some point, why not go all out and create some delicious?

3. Call up some friends or text them (whatever the young people are doing these days).


Winter Break is a great time to call up those friends you hardly ever see because you finally have time to meet with them. Everyone likes to feel cared about and maybe you can be the one to make someone feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

4. Pick up a time-consuming hobby. 


     You can also keep yourself occupied with a time consuming hobby like knitting or wood carving. Not only will you learn a new skill, but you’ll be able to be semi-productive doing so. To read about real adult responsibilities to get a head start on over Winter Break, read Briana’s Blog “All About that Productivity: Making the Most of Your Break.”

Have a wonderful break, friends.
