Yay! It’s that time of year! Are you heading off to a hot locale? Or a ski holiday? Home-cooked meals? Or sweats and catch-up homework time? Making some extra cash?
February break is a week in which each of us does something slightly different. Thus, it’s a time to prioritize and customize! You’re not going to be able to do everything. So, what do you think is going to make the biggest difference and de-stress you the most going into the rest of the semester? Is it to be caught up (or ahead) on all
of your homework? Or is it to finally take a breath and re-energize with family and friends? You need to make that decision. Oftentimes it’s a mix of both. But the main goal is: come back ready for the rest of the semester.
My best suggestion:Go through all of your course schedules and syllabi and make a list—when are all of your assignments, exams, meetings, commitments, and other assorted things due? Whether that’s in a list or in a calendar, write them down. Don’t forget to put the percentage of each in brackets beside it (so that you don’t stress over an assignment worth 5% when you have an exam later that week worth 40%– you shouldn’t necessarily be prioritizing by date). Now you can see the rest of your semester and know for certain what needs to get done when.
