Take a break from those books — you deserve some self-care.

From stepping into freshman year until working your way to graduation, college life is tough — to say the least. It’s so easy to get caught up between rushing from one class to another, studying for exams, and finishing papers. On top of that, you also have to get involved in extracurricular activities and socialize with friends to get the most out of school.  

Students tend to forget to take good care of themselves to keep up with a busy schedule. But stepping back to focus on yourself is crucial to avoid burning out. What makes you happy? Prioritize your needs over your to-do list to enjoy these amazing benefits:  

It keeps you strong and healthy.  

Getting good grades is not the only thing to worry about in school. There’s pressure to be a social butterfly, too. When you try to achieve a lot of things in a short amount of time, stress can take a toll on your health. Your immune system weakens, so you get sick easily. Soon enough, you start skipping classes and missing out on having fun with your friends.  

While college opens you to life-changing experiences, the key is to do everything in moderation. Keeping a healthy lifestyle is just as important as finishing your tasks. Allow your body to recuperate by getting enough sleep. Eat right and exercise regularly to get rid of toxins that can be harmful to your health. Whether it’s reading your favorite book or listening to music, doing things you love on your own boosts your levels of happy hormones and provide you a nice cocktail of pleasure and satisfaction.  

It allows you to dedicate time for things that matter.  

Spending time with yourself gives you a break from distractions that get in the way of thinking clearly — it forces you to wind down and take a different perspective. And because not everything's happening so fast, you get to appreciate things better.  

Take a social-media detox even for an hour a week (or a day a week, if you can!) to listen to your thoughts: assess your goals, arrange your schedule, or just let your imagination wander. Check out an art exhibit or explore a new restaurant. Meditate for a few minutes to let go of negative thoughts and anxieties.  

Plus, refreshing your mind boosts concentration and sharpens your memory. That means you won’t have to struggle for hours when reviewing for your exams!  

It helps you foster solid relationships.  

Alone time offers a better understanding of who you really are. You’re able to reassess your values, embrace your quirks, and discover that mistakes are part of every day. Being comfortable with your unique personality helps you get in touch with your emotions, enabling you to cope with change and handle problems smoothly.  

Awareness of your own needs enhances the quality of your relationship with others. It lets you value the moments you share with your family and friends more. Got group projects to work on? Me-time helps you collaborate well with your classmates and makes building new friendships a breeze, too.
