Ways to wisely spend this extra time off

written by Kelsey Pease

     Fortunately for CCSC students and several other surrounding school districts, their summer has been extended. For CCSC, this extension is almost two full weeks. With this extra time, instead of lounging around, eating junk food and not doing much of anything, make the best out of it by focusing on some self-improvement. 


     1. Take a little bit of time everyday to exercises 


     You do not have to dedicate all of your free time to focusing on your glutes. Just 30      minutes everyday can begin your road to a fitter body, sharper mind and an improved attitude. Students are spending hours everyday working on their school work, what is 30 minutes of exercise in the summer? 

     2. Go out and get some sun



     Instead of spending all day inside, try to go out and get some sun. It can be as long as 15 minutes. A little bit of sun everyday can give your body, mind, and soul a refreshing boost of energy and vitamin-D. 


     3. Set a moment aside for just you


     Life can get chaotic with parents, friends, significant others, pets, and families. It can be hard to find a moment where it is just you. It is important to set aside some time to think, breathe, and relax


     4. Self-reflect at the end of each day 


     It is easy to lose track of who you are, what you want, and where you are going. There are many ways you can self-reflect and remind yourself of these things. Activities like journaling or meditation are just a few of many different ways to self-reflect. 

     Working on bettering yourself can completely change your life. It helps you juggle all the things life throws at you. Self-improvement gives you a better understanding of who you are and what you want. Doing these things can boost your self-esteem and help you in moving forward with your life and work towards your desired goals. It has a way of giving you a purpose, a strive. With all this additional time, it is a perfect, once-in-a-lifetime chance to begin your journey of self-improvement
