How to Soak Up Every Second of Your Holiday

I honestly thought the day would never come. The day where we get to throw down our books, turn up the Mamma Mia 2 sound track and forget what we're "supposed" to be doing for a whole month. No school, no teachers, no assignments, nothing due. It seems like the time of your life right? 

You see, if you're like me and are two weeks in to your holiday and haven't done anything except eat, sleep, blog and repeat, you might get a little bored. And honestly, boredom tends to speed up your holiday and let the "fun factor", go down drastically. That's exactly why I've decided to help you not waste any time this holiday but rather to soak up every second. 

Today, we're going to be exploring 5 things to do instead of sleeping this fabulous break and how to soak up every second of the holiday. 

How to Soak up Every Second: 

Be present. This is my new holiday mantra. I really believe that you should have a holiday plan. Although holidays mean time to rest and laze around, they're also time to reach goals and do things you won't have time to do when you go back to school. However, I do know how tempting that 21st episode of Orange is the New Black is and so, make a list of everything you want to achieve this holiday and every day try and become one step closer to finishing that to do list. This also gives you purpose, which prevents you from lazing around all day, however tempting it may be. Also, make sure you aren't wasting time on things that don't really need your attention. Things like social media, this is a quick and easy way to fall into an achieve-nothing-holiday-trance. 

And next...5 Fabulous things to do this Holiday: 

1. Find a new hobby 

This is a great way to keep busy during the holidays! Remember that time you wanted to go vegan? Okay, not quite a hobby but the holidays are the perfect time to start! It's also a great time to start gyming, yoga, meditating, reading or baking. You never now, you might just find your next great talent ;) P.S click here to check out the benefits of Yoga!

2. Exercising 

The holidays are a fabulous time to start exercising! It's not just about working off those 3 cupcakes you had because you were bored ;) but it's also a fantastic way to head back to school looking, and feeling, great.

3. Meet up with friends 

Meet up with your friends that you haven't seen in ages! You should even try that cute coffee shop you saw around the corner. But, no late notice excuses when your Netflix season gets, just too good. Aim to leave the house more than once this holiday ;)

4. Throw a party 

I did this a while back and I loved it. Get a group of friends over, one who has a knack for creating bomb playlists included obviously, ask them to each bring a snack and turn up the jams. Get your adrenaline and your neighbours temper heated this holiday, I promise it will be loads of fun!

5. Rest 

The most important part of this holiday is definitely to rest. Going back to school will definitely be busy and you need to make sure you're ready. So you definitely have to add some down time to your holiday plan. 

Chloe's holiday update: 

This holiday I'm jetting off to the wee country of Scotland. Fun Fact, there are 5.2 million people who live in Scotland and my mom used to be one of them! So for this month long break we're going to be spending time in Glasgow & St Andrews. If you want to follow along on my trip, make sure to follow my Insta Stories! 

I hope this guide to soaking up every second of your holiday helps you maximise every free-from-school second! Have a fabulous Winter Break angels!
