Life can be extremely demanding, especially if you’re a high school senior floundering through apps. Sometimes, as tough as it is, you’ve gotta take a break and care for yourself. For me personally, taking a break means fully doing so: ditching electronics and school work (okay, maybe bring a physics worksheet or two), getting out of your familiar surroundings (and habits), and putting yourself in new, challenging, and exciting environments.
The world has so much more to offer than stressful deadlines, peer pressure, the necessity to get things right, etc. etc. Breathe. Bloom. Be. Slow down. It’s okay.
Simplify. Detoxify. Refresh.
