What are you going to do over breaks?

February 17, 2011

A break has finally arrived!  Not a minute too soon.  Some will use it to relax and recuperate from the first few weeks of the semester.  Some will use it to get work done on class projects and assignments.  Some will use it to study, clean up their notes, and get organized.  Others will use it to get community service and professional service hours logged in.   Finally, some will maximize their time and do all of those things.  The questions is “What are you going to do?”  Here are my suggestions:

  1. Take time to relax and have some fun.  It will rejuvenate you for the next part of the semester.  Get plenty of rest. You will be more energized and you will get better results when you return to classes.
  2. Take time to work on class assignments and to study.  You will come back feeling less overwhelmed and more prepared. 
  3. Take time to get organized.   The feeling of being on top of things is priceless.
  4. Spend a day doing community service or getting professional experience hours logged in.   Breaks are a great time to network with RDs and other professionals and community leaders.  Help out at your old High School or grade school.  Volunteer at the local library or hospital.  You will be glad you did!

Whatever you do have a great break.  Be safe. Be productive. Be impressive.  And of course….be healthy!
