1. Go Hiking!
Did you know that Timberlands can be hiking boots too? Bring those beer-stained Timberlands on Spring Break with you incase there’s a trail or mountain or even a waterfall! Hiking is great exercise, and think of the great insta opportunities!
2. Try to read a book
Reading may not be the most exciting thing that you can do over Spring Break, but if you find a book that you love, it can really improve your mood! Plus if you read the whole thing, that is truly an accomplishment.
3. Learn how to make guacamole
Just think of all the money you can save by learning how to make guacamole yourself, instead of adding $1.80 extra to your burrito bowl every time. It is really easy to make, and does not take that much time. Instead of killing your liver, you could make guacamole that will taste amazing the next time you’ve killed your liver!
Well what’s the first step? You ask. Here’s a hint:
“Peel the avocado..”
4. Get acupuncture

5. Go Kayaking
Wherever your spring break vacation or stay-cation may be, you could take a relaxing kayaking trip! Kayaking can be as strenuous, or as relaxing as you desire, and you’ll undoubtedly get a great tan while doing it.
6. Watch every episode of the Star Wars film series
Are you tired of being confused when people talk about Star Wars? We thought the film series had taken a break forever, but with the addition of a new episode, we are again feeling stupid when people talk about Star Wars and we totally forgot what happened at the end of Revenge of the Sith.
7. Reinvent your look
Spring break is a great time to reinvent yourself! Have you ever thought about dying your hair that one color, and you have all those pics from Pinterest saved on your phone but you keep putting it off? Now is the perfect time to do it! Some other ways to reinvent your look include: getting a tattoo, start wearing only ripped jeans, getting a cool septum ring, start wearing those cool headband wrap things like that girl pictured above^^
8. Learn how to drive stick shift
Driving stick shift might seem intimidating at first, but after some practice it’s fairly easy. Also, it can make driving more exciting! Driving stick shift is something that can be mastered in a few days practice, so spring break is the perfect time to accomplish this.
9. Do Bikram yoga
Bikram yoga is usually done in a room kept at 104°F. In order to not pass out, faint, or vomit afterward, one must make sure to eat something prior to the class, and keep a bottle of ice water and a cold towel with them during the class. The health benefits of Bikram are endless. It is definitely one of the healthiest things you could do over your spring break.
10. Clean your makeup brushes
Experts say that you should clean your makeup brushes once a month at the least. However, with a busy college schedule it’s hard to make this a priority. Cleaning your makeup brushes is easy and doesn’t require any fancy products. First, simply put a dime sized amount of baby shampoo into a bowl and fill it with warm water. Then you can dip each brush into the bowl, and then rinse them under the faucet using your fingers to clean off the excess makeup. Let the brushes dry on a small towel over night, and they’ll be all set to use in the morning!
