Spring break is the perfect time to have fun and relax! Whether you are going to the beach or enjoying the comfort of your own home, there are plenty of ways to spend your time off school. If you do plan on taking a trip, here are a few tips to help make this spring break one you will never forget.


1. Talk to Your Parents and Friends

Start by talking to your parents about what you want to do for spring break. It’s important to not only get their permission, but also establish trust. Talking to your parents about potential spring break plans away from home helps them trust you since you’re keeping them informed. Discuss where you want to go, what you’ll want to do and who you’ll want to go with so your parents can approve your proposed plans.


2. Plan Ahead

Now you can really start planning! Using a calendar will help you keep track of your schedule. Fill it up as much as you want. Just make sure you also leave ample time to have some quality “me time” when you can kick back and relax. You’ll have to do some research to find things that interest you at your destination. You’ll also want to start this process well before spring break so you can find great deals, book reservations and discover fun events before they sell out.


3. Prep Yourself

It’s important to be prepared for your trip. Be sure to pack the following items:

  • Essentials: Toothbrush, toothpaste, hairbrush — if you use a certain item every day, you will need to bring it with you. Consider travel or trial size items to save room.

  • Period Protection: Pads, tampons and pantiliners are must-haves, even if you aren’t expecting your period.

  • Shaving Tools: If you’re shaving your legs, you’ll want to bring a razor and shave gel with you. It’s important that you use shave gel to avoid any irritation. Your razor should also be new and not dull or rusted.



  • Only Necessary Clothing: You’ll certainly need your bathing suit (if you are going near a beach, pool or lake, of course), but be sure to pack clothes around what you have planned. For example, clothes you can get messy, clothes for dressing up and even a warm sweater in case you get chilly.

  • Skin Care and Protection: Don’t forget to take care of your skin while you are away. It’s good to exfoliate and moisturize your skin daily, especially if you are out in the sun all day. Most importantly, use sunscreen, even if it is a cloudy day! It’s your main defense against damaging sunrays.


4. Be Safe

Leave phone numbers of where you can be reached with your parents and friends back home and let them know when you’ve made it to your destination safely. Keep your cash, debit and credit cards close to you. If you happen to lose your wallet or a card, be sure to call the bank and have the card cancelled before someone can find and misuse it.


No matter where you end up for spring break, just remember to be smart, safe and make the most of it. Whether you’re on the beach or hanging out with friends at your local pizza place, take the time to appreciate this vacation for what it really means: No school!
