Plan a road trip: If you’re able to drive and have access to a vehicle, a road trip can be a wonderful bonding experience between you and your friends. Pack a bag, load up the car, and hit the road together to explore someplace new and exciting. Here is a link to some of the hidden waterfalls in North Carolina.
Visit friends: Winter break is a great time to reconnect with friends you haven’t seen in a while. Reach out to friends you don’t see very often.
- Ride bikes together, play in the snow, or simply hang out watching movies or playing video games.
- Consider taking a trip to visit friends who live a few towns away or a state over.
- Catch up on what’s new with your friends.
- Get coffee together or go out for a meal.
Volunteer: There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than helping out your fellow man. Spend a couple of hours a week at your local hospital/homeless shelter/soup kitchen etc. You’ll be glad you did.
Exercise: There’s no such thing as a winter layer for humans. Winter is a great time to get outside and run and hike. Go ice skating if you have the opportunity. Go to a gym if it too cold or create an exercise plan that you can do in your home. The important key here is to stay physically fit during this time.
