It's Christmastime! That translates to finals time for high school students; and after such a stressful time of studying for our finals, and writing multiple essays, it’s time for a much needed break! This year we need to wind down at home because of quarantines, and we need to socially distance so that we can get back to normal as soon as possible. So here it is, how to unwind during the holidays: quarantine edition!Call Someone: A lot of us are struggling at the moment because of the long distance between ourselves and our loved ones. Take the time to call them and catch up with each other, it might not be the same as being in the same place but, it’s nice to hear a familiar voice every once in a while. Sleep: I mean, I can’t be the only one that’s running on caffeine these last few weeks before Christmas break. Once this is all over and your tests are done, sleep for as long as your body lets you. You only get two to three weeks off. Once those weeks are gone, I can’t promise how much time you’ll have to sleep (depending on how busy your schedule is). If you are lacking sleep now and are feeling stressed, sleep will—without a doubt—make a difference. Don’t even wait until winter break! Do it now. I promise, you’ll feel great after a good nap.Plan Next Semester's Schedule: School may be the last thing you want to think about during your break. For some, stress is caused by the overwhelming sight of the pile of work sitting on your desk, along all the Zoom meetings you need to attend. Planning next semester’s schedule will eliminate some of your stress regarding next year.
