I know in the last post we recommended “breathing.” Today, we say: take a break.
For us on our campus, finals are over; graduation is done. Summer school has not yet begun. Even if your job is not on break, make your mind take a break from school for a few days (at least).
You have our permission: Take a break from thinking about and worrying about school. At least for a few days. You need the break to recharge later on; plus, while your active brain is taking a break, other parts of your brain will continue to “work” on school-related “stuff.” When you do start actively thinking about school again, you’ll do so from a more informed position — with different perspectives.
Give it a try. Take a break.
