It’s a new year, and that means a fresh start for infinite adventures! The term just began, and that means that the stress of trying not to fall behind along with the inevitable crossed eyes that come from reading your computer screen for six hours straight is upon us once again. But 2016 is the time for change; resolve to mix in restorative breaks to maintain your peace of mind! Here are just few options.
Find a new place to breathe the fresh air. If you enjoy Mary’s Peak, try Chip Ross Park. The uphill bike ride there will be a work out, but the satisfaction of the view, and the fun of going downhill on the way back will be worth it.
Find a new coffee shop. Sure, you enjoy the indulgence of Dutch Bros coffee, but try mixing it up with a local option! Interzone is close to campus and a great place to get a delicious coffee while experiencing a new Corvallis environment!
Find a new distraction.New year means new movies, which means new books to read before the movie comes out! Personally, I’m reading The 5th Wave. A movie night with friends after a week of studying is exactly what we need to make this term successful. So grab a book, find a couch in the MU, enjoy some spontaneous piano playing, and maybe even take a nap.
Now that you’ve got a new plan for the 2016, rock your resolutions and ace this term!
