Spring break is all about getting out of town away from daily responsibilities. That’s not always possible, so we are going to share some ideas about how to give yourself a break right here in Ladson, SC. That’s right, give yourself a break right in your Cypress River apartment using the following tips. 

Prepare

Get everything in order before your vacation. Even if you’re having a stay-cation at your apartment, you should treat it like you would a regular break. Decide how long it will be, separate work or school from you-time, and clean a bit before so you can enjoy your environment or come back to a clean home. Finish up work or school assignments before, during, or after your break so you don’t have to worry about neglecting any duties while you relax. 

Schedule

When deciding when your break will be, consider what already works well into your natural schedule. Ideal times for breaks are whenever you’re not obligated to do things, like weekends, but if that doesn’t fit for you, figure out what other days may work. Let your boss, professors, or others know if you’re taking any time off so you can take care of any responsibilities beforehand.

Set Boundaries

Set boundaries so your break is actually a break. Allow yourself to disconnect from the world and relax by turning off your cell phone. Enjoy every moment and focus on whatever entertainment options you want to do so you can make the most of your time. If you’re bothered with any thoughts of work, school, or other responsibilities, don’t just dismiss them. Write them down on a sticky note or a notepad so your mind can then move on from them, knowing you can pay attention to your ideas later.

Treat Yourself

Treat yourself to a facial or a trip to a spa. Facials and other spa-like care can do a lot to help you feel relaxed and refreshed, and they’re a great pampering activity to help you feel like the break is a special one. Check out reviews for some spas in Ladson or browse Pinterest for some homemade facials that might work for your needs and your skin type.

Get Outside 

Enjoy the great outdoors. Getting a breath of fresh air can be a nice way to spend your break. If the weather is warming up to your liking, visit a park or take a walk around our community to stretch your legs and enjoy a bit of nature. Whatever other activities you decide to do, make it fun for you and it will be a great break!

We hope you enjoy these tips and have a relaxing break that will get you ready for your next few weeks’ of tasks! Have fun!
