Productive Ways To Spend Your Winter Break

We are alllllllllllllll glad it's time for break! Christmas is on Friday and I couldn't be happier. However, this entire semester I have put off so many things. I'm going to take this break to catch up on things I want and need to do! Here are some things you can do to be productive on this break!

  • Read or finish a book that you've started 
  • If you have a blog, make some adjustments that you've been waiting to do
  • Queue up some blog posts
  • Clean your house/apartment/dorm
  • Clean out your backpack/purse
  • Save money
  • Work, if you can
  • Revamp your resume 
  • Get some sleep
  • Watch too many Christmas movies (Okay, probably not productive, but it's a right of passage)
  • Finish up your Christmas shopping
  • Catch up with family and friends from your hometown
  • Get ready for next semester (if you're still in school)
    • Make folders
    • Download syllabi
    • Write in agenda
    • Get school supplies
  • Catch up on your favorite tv shows
  • Kayla and I are in search of a big (and cheap) dresser, so if you have a task like that, make way to complete it!


  1. Winter break makes me miss college.
    I'll have a few days off after Christmas and I'm so ready for that time to myself -- even if some of it will be spent running silly errands that I have to accomplish.

  2. This is a great idea! I totally miss having an official winter break, but I save up some vacation so I can have one of my own. It's just so nice to have some time to recharge before the new year starts!

  3. I like to go through my closet and make donations once a year. People need warm clothes even more this season.

  4. I've been queuing a ton of blog posts! My main focus with my free time has been my blog.


  5. I love these ideas! I'm currently getting the changes for my blog ready to be launched in January!

  6. I like to look for ways to be productive in my personal life when I am on vacation. This break I'm doing some freelance writing and hoping to read a book on digital journalism.

  7. Great tips! I definitely want to start building my YouTube channel over break!

  8. I'm definitely going to try to clean my apt top to bottom after I get back from vacation :)

  9. I think this is a great list! I've finished up my book I was reading, decorated our whole home, now I'm slowly trying to get everything absolutely spotless before I start student teaching in the Spring :)

  10. I need to make my way through this list- especially clean my dorm and get some sleep



  11. I'm so not ready to start thinking about next semester! Such great tips!

  12. I am hoping to queue up some blog posts during the four days that I have off from work! Great list of suggestions :) I hope you have an awesome and productive break, Ally!

  13. Cleaning, blogging, and Christmas movie bingeing are definitely on my list of to-do's!

  14. Really great ideas! I plan on cleaning out my closet, and preparing for next semester!

  15. This is a great list! Unfortunately, I wasn't very productive on my time off but maybe I will be this long weekend!
