Things to do Over Spring Break

It is finally nearing spring break which means we can relax and enjoy the freedom of no school for two weeks. With that amount of free time, getting bored can easily happen. There are many things to fight that boredom, from sleeping to going on vacation. 

The first thing I recommend doing over spring break would be to catch up on sleep. School can be very stressful, so getting enough sleep is important. Whether it be just an hour more of sleep or five, it is still good to feel rested for when school starts back up again. 

“All my plans for break are just sleeping,” said Emme Grubbs, 9. 

Another relaxing and important thing to do over spring break is self-care. Self-care has many different forms, it could be doing a skin care routine, eating something you really enjoy, or just relaxing. I recommend getting a facemask and relaxing while you eat your favorite snack. Self care is very therapeutic and should be a necessity for everyone. 

Another way to keep yourself entertained could be to get some video games. If you have a gaming console it can be a fun way to pass the time either by yourself or with friends. Some fun games to play could be Minecraft, Cuphead, Stardew Valley, and is a drawing game and can only be played multiplayer, but it is free to download on steam or google. 

“I’m going to stay up until 4 calling my friends and just messing around on Minecraft,” said Brandi Sharp, 11. 

Finally, another thing that you could do over spring break would be to go on vacation. Even though we are in a pandemic, you can follow safety precautions and enjoy a vacation. You could go to California, Florida, or wherever you desire. Over Spring Break it is a good time to take care of yourself and your mental health whenever possible.
