Spring break is coming to town! Most of you have plans already for the most awaited student vacation of the year. This is the season when beaches and party venues are usually really crowded and wild. If you don't have plans, you don't want to squeeze yourself into those club or beach parties and then this year's break can be productive as possible. If you want to accomplish something good and worthwhile on this much-awaited break, here are six possible ways on how to do so.
The Stretching and Sporting Break
If you've ever wanted to be fit and healthy but you just couldn't find time for it during school days, now is your chance! In a weeks time or more, there will be results, plus, you will create a habit. You will feel better once you finish sweating those fat deposits out. Although exercising and doing sports really is kind of tough and tiring, your body will definitely reap its good effects. So give it a try! Do some stretching and exercising to wash away all your fats and toxins. It wouldn't just be a productive Spring Break for you, but an active one as well.
Climb Any Mountain, Swim Through the Streams
In case you looking for a pretty good alternative to taking a plunge on a crowded beach during Spring Break, try hiking. Aside from the cardio workout this can give you, you will surely appreciate nature's beauty and all that's within it. You have the option of taking a dip in different bodies of water on various mountains. Refreshing falls, clear stream, and pure rivers this is your chance to explore the wild!
Do Volunteer Work
Success isn't measured by how much you have done or accomplished for yourself, but also for the sake of others. It may be unusual for a student to spend his/her Spring Break in an orphanage or animal rescue center however, this by all means is the true meaning of "success" -- being able to reach out and help others in need.
Clean Your Room for a Garage Sale
For a change and for the sake of your mom's happiness, you can also clean your room during Spring Break. You don't need to spend a dime for this. Plus, you can even earn some bucks by selling out some of your still usable belongings through a garage sale. Besides cleaning out the jungle-like mess inside your room and finding cool stuff you forgot you owned, you can also earn and save up for emergency purposes (i.e. mom cut-off your allowance or you're short on budget for some school projects or payments). Talk about hitting two birds with one stone!
Take an On or Offline Crash Course
Within the Spring Break span, you can also take online crash courses or regular classroom short courses. If you can think of skills you want to learn or enhance, then this is the best productive Spring Break activity for you. You can even receive a certificate for that for future use.
Find a Job and Save
You don't really need to find a full-time job or apply to a big company. You can probably look for an online job for students (which you can continue even when break is over) or accept a wait staff, assistant librarian, or even nanny post to make your break both meaningful and productive (even to your wallet).
Spring Break is indeed a time to have fun and party all you want for many. But life as a whole is not always about that. You can be as productive as possible for this year's break if you would choose to. Just keep in mind that productivity is not just a Spring Break thing as well. It's a habit that can form and be useful in your everyday life. Happy Spring Break to you!
