With all this time off, what do you want to do with it? If you have ambitions for winter break, a regular schedule can help you achieve them. For example, if you want to practice yoga five mornings per week, it will be difficult to be successful if you stay up until 3 a.m. watching television the nights prior. If you are hoping to work during the holiday, an irregular schedule might cause you to be late to your job, or even worse, to lack focus when you arrive on the job.
Planning a trip for the holiday? Effectively managing your schedule can help you get to your destination on time, decrease jet lag, and leave you with more time and energy to enjoy your vacation. Even if you will spend your days just running errands or catching up with family and friends, following a schedule will make your days more predictable and therefore help you to set and accomplish realistic goals.
Keeping a solid schedule over winter break might be challenging, and it may even sound unappealing, but a schedule can actually help you to have fun and find time to relax! Putting in the effort to keep a regular daily routine during this time will certainly pay off. You will thank yourself when you return to school healthy, refreshed, accomplished, and ready to learn. Enjoy your break!
