Winter feels like it has gone on forever, I’m ready for a little break. Are you feeling the same way? It happens that Spring Break is right around the corner (technically it doesn’t exist in the corporate world). Still everybody needs time now and then, to unwind and have fun. If you are starting to think about Spring Break, here are some tips on how to make the most of this much needed break from the daily grind:
Set a goal for your spring break. What do you want out of your break? How are you going to recharge your battery? Since I can only afford to take a few days off, I’m taking a road trip. I’m heading to the mountains to refine my snowboarding skills (which are almost nonexistent). This is how I am going to recharge.
Save some money, find deals. Once you establish where and what you are doing for spring break, look for local deals. Using Groupon, I found lift tickets for $39 versus the regular price of $89! Saving over 60% means I can enjoy an extra day of snowboarding, splurge on a “must eat” at the restaurant or keep a few extra bucks in the bank.
Make the most out of your time off. To really make the most out of your break will require some work up front. Just because you are going on break doesn’t mean the world stops, there will still be work that needs to be done, chapters of reading to get through and overall deadlines that still need to be met. Before you check out, get your to-dos done. Getting things checked off your list means you will be able to keep a clear head and fully enjoy yourself without worrying.
Play it loud. Last thing to do is make a playlist. For many of us, music gets us through the road trip, long plane ride, sets the tone for the night and creates memories. Pick your songs, create the list and enjoy!
