There’s always this constant pressure to do something with summer break. Whether that be an internship, work, packed travel schedules or summer school, it always feels like something has to be done, even when it’s supposed to be a time for a relaxing break.

Summer should be the time for us to focus on ourselves and do what is best for us. The school year, especially for a college student, is STRESSFUL to say the least, so summer needs to be a time when we take the pressure off ourselves.

Sometimes we are hardest on ourselves. We need to realize that a break is O.K. No matter what that entails. Travel the world, binge all of Netflix for the next three months or get a cool internship. Just take this time to better yourself and be yourself.
