Besides getting a few days off from school, by far the best part of Thanksgiving Break is the actual food. Pie, pie and more pie. I’m not even full American but I love pie. There’s only one week I can get my pie fix in the entire year and that’s during Thanksgiving break. But with the family together and the days off from school one can get into a funk indulging during time away from the books. Here’s how to be productive during Turkey break.
Finish Projects and Start Studying for Finals
If you’re like me, you probably have long-term assignments or projects due sometime after the break. A great way to get ahead is to use your break to complete assignments. It’s also important to note that after Thanksgiving break, we’ll be in December and that means finals. Might as well spend the extra days off clearing as much off your academic plate as possible.
As mentioned above, finals are around the corner and that means it’s time to hit the books hard. There’s never “too early” when it comes to studying for final exams and if you’ve got extra time between pumpkin pie and turkey legs, be sure to stuff it with textbook sessions.
Keep Up the Training
Just because you’ve got a few days off from school doesn’t mean you get a few days off from your workout. If you’re somebody that exercises regularly, wants to, or is beginning to, having a holiday break in the middle of the semester can throw things off and can lead to falling off the wagon. During the break, be sure to keep up the jogs or push ups or whatever you do to stay in shape as it can help keep you from stress and gaining too much weight from all the holiday grubbing.
Make a Schedule
With days off from the usual routine, students can lose track of time and risk losing valuable time couching around. If you want to be productive during Turkey break, make yourself a little schedule of what you need to work on and then do it. A schedule is a key aspect in managing time efficiently.
