Holiday 101

Author: Jane Simajaya (FSN ‘22)

As the semester break commences, most students are coming back to their hometown and spending time with their loved ones. Although holiday is a time for us to relax, we can still be productive without feeling tired or bored. Here are some ways to make the most of your holiday time!

1. Learn a new skill or hobby 

Holidays are a chance for you to do something enjoyable such as learning new languages or musical instruments, discover new music genres and artists, or enroll in an online course to enhance certain soft skills.

2. Organize or declutter your room

Tidying up, finding proper places for items, and getting rid of things you no longer need can bring you a sense of calm and accomplishment. It creates a more functional space and sets up a positive environment for the upcoming semester.

3. Improve your physical and mental well-being

Some ways to improve your well-being are through exercise, practicing yoga, or exploring nature. These activities promote relaxation, reduce stress, and provide a refreshing break during the holiday.

4. Digital detox 

Plan some time to disconnect from your gadgets and switch to activities that involve spending time with your family and friends. This can help you relax, lower your stress, and give you back a sense of balance and presence in your life.

5. Networking 

Reach out to old friends, connect with new people, and expand your professional network. It does not have to be about promoting yourself, but it could also be about caring for others. Being open to new possibilities is important for good networking.

We hope that this information can help you to stay productive during the holiday! Embracing productive activities can boost a positive mindset and become a great start for the new semester.
