Here are the 6 ways to make the best of summer vacation.
Vacation is a great time to slow down, recharge, spend time seeing your loved ones, have fun with your friends, and do things you wouldn’t normally have time to do.
While it is fun, most of us end up ruining our schedule by being too much careless. There are few ways by which you can improve yourself while enjoying your vacation.
Develop a productive habit
Some say it takes a very little time to form a habit. Others say it takes a lot longer. But exactly how long it takes doesn’t really matter. The objective is, to put the work in up front if you want a habit to stick. Holidays are the best time as you have plenty of free time to discover yourself.
Reading novels, maintaining a personal diary enhances your reading and writing skills gradually
Learn a new skill for your career
Most people have a skill they’ve always wanted to learn to advance their career but simply haven’t gotten around to.
Expertise in MS Word is essential for a law student, especially for drafting. MS Excel and Powerpoint are also important for most of the corporate jobs.
If you really don’t have the time to dig into a new skill, you can at least use the time to set yourself up for starting to learn one in the new year. Spend some time browsing conferences or classes you could take and figure out where you can fit them into your schedule.
Revising the Syllabus
We tend to forget most of the details after a long break from college. Revising the syllabus is a good practice to tighten your grip and be a better student.
It may look difficult but it’s really easy. Start dividing the topics into smaller parts and study important case laws in depth.
Overcome your fears
Your fears reflect areas where you can grow. Fears are the compass for growth, it represents something you’ve yet to address, and addressing it helps you to grow. For example, if you have a fear of public speaking, start speaking in front of a mirror in a room
Kill your comfort zone
Real growth comes with hard work and sweat. Being too comfortable doesn’t help us grow – it makes us stagnate. What is your comfort zone?
Do you stay in most of the time?
Do you keep to your own space when out with other people?
Do you listen to music for a prolonged period?
Do you spend a lot of time on social networking sites?
Shake your routine up. Do something different. By exposing yourself to a new context, you’re literally growing as you learn to act in new circumstances. Identify your comfort zones and kill them by doing something productive instead.
Start a 30-day challenge
Set a goal and give yourself 30 days to achieve this. Your goal can be to stick with a new habit or something you’ve always wanted to do but have not. 30 days is just enough time to strategize, plan, get into action, review and nail the goal. Make sure to record your progress and compare day-by-day performance.
