Why Everyone Should Have a Spring Break

I know I have been doing a lot of lists lately, but this one is pretty essential. One of the biggest perks of working in a school is the time off throughout the school year. I have been loving my vacation so far and was very sad when Ryan had to return to work this morning. Everyone should have a Spring Break! And here’s why:

  1. We all need a mental break from work once in awhile.
  2. Vacations reduce stress which, in turn, increases productivity.
  3. Who doesn’t like to travel?
  4. Or just sit on your butt for a few days?
  5. The house needs a good cleaning after being closed up all winter.spring-cleaning.jpg
  6. Winter was horrendous this year and I think we all need a little time in the sun right now.
  7. If you have kids, there’s quality time to spend as a family.
  8. Or if you work with kids like me, there’s quality “quiet” time without kids around.
  9. Sleeping in once in awhile is essential to human sanity.
  10. Your health can improve from reduced stress.
  11. Work, work, work with no play makes for a lame day.
  12. Time to catch up on all of your favorite shows.
  13. Or binge watch movies if it’s rainy that day.
  14. You might remember why you liked your job in the first place.
  15. Work on developing a new or existing hobby.
  16. Enjoy the afternoon sunshine for once!GIFSec.com
  17. Cook a fancy meal without rushing to prepare it after work.
  18. Forget your road rage by avoiding rush hour traffic.
  19. You could finally clean out your wardrobe of 10 year old ill-fitting clothing.
  20. You can get in touch with yourself again and find what makes you happy without the pressures of a work week.
