These could be any number of activities, but they are all easily achieved right here on campus. 2.) Movie Marathon: What good is the internet if you don’t utilize its entertainment sources when you have the chance? After that ‘Stress-free’ bubble bath, slip into some comfy clothing and fall into your most comfortable lounge chair. Sure, after a few hours of watching movies, you might just slip away into sleep. That’s okay though because… 3.) Catch up on sleep: The hours that you have spent forcing yourself to remain awake have surely taken a toll on you. Allow your body to tell you when it needs to rest and fall asleep whenever you may feel the urge. There is nothing more relaxing than that. 4.) Spend time with Friends: It is hard to keep healthy relationships when you first leave for college. In fact, that is usually when you are able to see who your true friends are because as you move forward in life, they are either along for the ride, or jumping off of the bus. When you have time to regroup between semesters, be sure to reconnect with your friends and loved ones. These relationships are imperative for your success in school and life. There are so many things to look forward to during your Staycation, especially simply having time to yourself. Don’t get down over not leaving campus during this break, instead, you should be sure to look at everything around you as a positive chance to regroup before you have to get back onto your grind.
