Explore the local area: Wherever you are in the world, there will be lots of places to explore. Try combining sightseeing with a little bit of exercising by going on a hike or a bike ride. This will help in clearing your mind and will ensure that you work productively.
Make time to rest: While studying and indulging in an extracurricular activity are both important, remember that your body also needs rest. Invest in a comfortable pillow and a pair of earplugs to ensure you sleep properly. Your body will thank you.
Stay in touch, but not too much: Although it is important to make new friends it is also equally important to keep in touch with old ones and also your family. You can talk over the phone, text, chat over the internet or speak on a video call. Try and schedule a weekly chat or call, so that you have that to look forward to during the week.
