I don’t know how it is in other countries, but a lot of Belgian University and University College students, like myself, have to study during the Christmas holidays because we have exams for the whole month of januari. So I want to share with you my favorite little breaks.
‘Mens sana in corpore sano’ this sentence is one of the only things I still remember from my Latin classes, it means a healthy mind in a healthy body. Especially when you are studying it is very important to eat healthy. So one of my favorite little breaks is to make myself a little fruit salad like I did in this picture, here I mixed pomegranate and mango and I made myself a cup of raspberry tea.
My second favorite break is painting my nails, I really can’t focus on my notebooks when I see my own nails that need a manicure. It only takes five minutes so it is perfect when you are getting a little bored. While I was doing my Christmas nails I realized that I actually succeeded in one of my 2014 new years resolutions, which was ‘stop biting your nails’. I know that my nails look very short in this picture but for me they are pretty long.
I have to admit that I’m not the biggest magazine fan, I definitely prefer to read blogs. Because the content on blogs is much more personal. But there are two seasons a year that I do buy some magazines and that is in winter time and in the summer. So my last favorite break is reading some nice magazines and dreaming of those gorgeous festive dresses, jewelry, shoes and so on.
Well that is exactly what I’m going to do this evening, I’m going to make myself a nice cup of tea and read one of these Christmas inspired magazines.
Wish you all a lovely evening
Don’t forget to tell me your favorite little breaks.
