Right about now, all of your friends are excited about what they’ll be doing this Spring break. Maybe you have too much work to do or maybe you just don’t have the money to take a trip anywhere. Whatever the case, there are still plenty of relaxing and fun ways to spend your Spring break!
Catch up on your reading. I always hear people say, “Oh, I wish I had time to read that book.” Well, now’s your chance. While reading is a great way to increase your vocabulary and make you more articulate, it can also be very relaxing. It’s so easy to get lost in an author’s story and forget about your stresses and worries. Don’t worry about what others are reading; find a book that you know will be interesting to you. Whether it’s a trashy teen book or the latest novel from one of the great authors of our time, you won’t enjoy it unless you’re interested in it. Who knows, maybe you’ll strike up a new hobby and continue reading even after Spring break is over.
Go shopping. We love shopping but most working girls don’t have the
time for it. You probably find yourself complaining about how you never have anything to wear so stop complaining and start shopping. Since you probably don’t get to shop every week, make sure to look for pieces that will carry you into the various seasons. Trends are okay but stay away from trends that don’t work with your body. If you won’t have a chance to shop again for a while then you don’t want to be stuck with a bunch of garments that were trending last season but are taking the back seat next season. Choose timeless colors and pieces and look for quality fabrics like cotton and silk. If you’re on a budget then decide what your budget is before leaving the house and make sure not to go over your budget while you’re out in Fashionistaland. Also, make a list of must-have pieces that you’ve really been yearning for and try to buy those before shopping for miscellaneous garments.
Seek out the nearest body of water. I realize that not all of you live near a beach but being near water is known to be very relaxing. Visit a friend who has a pool, go to the lake, take a little trip to your local water park or even sit in your bath tub for a little while. Peering into the water or being doused in water can provide a very calming feeling. Similar to that of getting lost in your favorite book, when you look out into the water your imagination begins to stir and for a moment, you forget where you are. The whole point is to forget about the tough time you had a work last week or the college of your dreams’ acceptance letter you’ve been waiting for and concentrate on what you’re doing and feeling at that very moment. Try to clear your brain of serious thoughts and fill it with child-like thoughts.
Go to a fancy restaurant. Gather up your girl gang or ask your
tenderoni out on a date and make reservations to go to that uber fancy restaurant you’ve always passed by but never had the pleasure of eating at. Food is a necessity but you don’t always get to have this kind of food, this is the food you dream of while you’re on break and trying to make the most of that egg salad sandwich you seem to be eating every day of your life. You deserve a meal fit for a queen so head out with an appetite and don’t come back until your tummy is filled with a whole lot of delicious goodness.
Enjoy your Spring break, Tiniziners!!
