School is overwhelming and takes a toll on you. So when it comes time for a break make sure you make the most of your time and most importantly enjoy it! I have compiled a list of things you should do so that you get the most out of your time off while still crushing your goals.
Read a book
Your probably thinking “What?” and I get it. All semester you were in those nursing books and you are probably sick of books. Put those nursing books away and grab a book you actually want to read! I started a book at the beginning of the semester and read about two chapters of it. Now that I have a some free time my plan is to actually finish the book.
Spend time with friends and family
You spend so much time on school and work that we tend to put some of the most important people in our lives on the back burner. They understand that nursing school is a lot of work and if they are true friends and love you then they understand why you could not hang out during the semester. So now take this time to catch up and hang out.
I know this is probably not exciting but you also have to be smart about how you spend your time. Next semester will come around quick so make sure you are organized and prepared for when it comes. Get those planners up to date and make sure you are ready. It will make your life so much easier. If you have been in nursing school for any amount of time you will now organization is key.
Focus on You
Take a day or even a few and just relax, take a hot bath or do whatever you want. Take some time to do you. Stay in bed all day or binge watch on Netflix’s. Whatever makes you happy.
Whatever you decide to do make sure you reflect on how far you have come and be proud of yourself. Take this time to relax, recharge and get ready to kick some butt in your next semester.
