spring+break_45

 

Every year you hear about the horrors of spring break. The news loves to show all the wild and tragic accidents that happens on the beach. Yet there is so much more to spring break. It can be a lot more than a drunken daze that you only remember through some questionable selfies.

This is the year to make your spring break an event to remember. Whether you plan on taking the time to go solo, hang with friends, or embrace your family again.

 

Sit Back and Do Nothing

 

If you find that you have no money or friends to hang with over spring break, one of the best things you can do for your mind and body, is to simply…relax.

That’s all! Just sit back and do nothing during your break. Hang out in your apartment and just pamper yourself. Sit back and binge watch your favorite shows, play the Xbox 8 hours a day, or grab your favorite sweats and catch up on your reading.

Take the time to enjoy a long hot bath or shower. Go all in and grab some bubbles and candles and just let your body unwind. When it is time to go back to school you are going to feel more refreshed than you ever have. While so many are still recuperating from a wild break, you will be ready to tackle the rest of the school year.

Road Trip

This one typically works better if you have some additional cash and a few crazy friends to enjoy the road with. Part of the fun of this type of spring break vacation is choosing the final destination. While the beach is always a popular one, don’t forget the majestic Grand Canyon, the massive Mall of America, or even the happiest place on Earth – Walt Disney World. Any place you can go with your friends is going to be great. And part of the enjoyment of a road trip is simply getting there. You are guaranteed to have more than a few laughs, deep conversations and loving your friends all the more than you did when you started the road trip.

Remember Your Family?

While you may have been trying to escape your family for the past 18 years or so, now is the best time to enjoy time together. While it may be hard to realize now, your time with family is precious and there will be less and less time that you get to spend time together.

Whether you choose to simply spend time at home for spring break or go on one last big family vacation…treasure it. It will be a time that you always love and go back to in memories. Even if your dad swears he looks good in sandals and black socks on the beach!

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to choosing things to do on spring break. You do not have to have a lot of money to enjoy spring break. There are plenty of things that take little to no money to enjoy. Simply enjoy your time off with those you hold dear to you in your life.
