“Gift” Yourself With a Break


If you’re planning on celebrating the big holidays this week, but are nowhere near done with your work, give yourself an early present and take a break.

To cover your tracks email your professor to find out when they’re expecting the next assignment to be due to them; if it’s before or after the holiday. Your instructor may be taking some time off too, and if you’re lucky you’ll have a later due date. But again, check with them first.

It may not seem like much, but for those in stress packed programs like an M.B.A. it’s hard to breathe at times. Give yourself the day off, hide your books, unplug your computer and set aside the smartphone for a while. Enjoy the time off with your family and friends, even open up a few presents while you’re at it. Indulge in the holiday, and then get back to reality the day after.

If you’re looking for something to motivate you back into learning after your break, check out some tips getting motivated in an online setting.

Happy Holidays from the Online Learning Tips Family!
