If you’re one of the lucky ones heading out of town for break to soak up the sun in an exotic location, or simply taking an opportunity to explore Portland, you’re going to need the essentials – spring break essentials, that is!
Don’t know where to start? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Here’s what’s on our Spring Break essentials checklist, guaranteed to make your break amazing. If only it could last longer than a week!
A GOOD BOOK – TRAIN YOUR BRAIN
We’ve all experienced it before – the minute you leave campus for a week, everything seems to seep out of your brain. Avoid post-break anxiety and take the opportunity to immerse yourself in a book. Not a reader? Try a brain-stimulating app or site like Lumosity.
A DELICIOUS DRINK – FUEL YOUR BODY
Whether you’re headed to the beach or stuck in Portland, it’s important to stay hydrated. Fun fact: your brain and heart, alone, are 73% water. Let’s be honest, though – most of us fail to consume the recommended 6-8 glasses per day.
Consider starting a new habit of increasing your water intake – your body will thank you! Not a water fan? Try spa water! Infuse plain water with some fresh-cut fruit and you’ll get your recommended daily dose in no time.
A NEW SWIMSUIT – LOOK GREAT, FEEL GREAT
Picture this: you, walking along a sandy beach dressed in that designer swimsuit you’ve always been wanting. Seems like a dream? No longer!
Consider The Orchid Boutique your new best friend. Cute bikinis, adorable one-pieces – all totally affordable. Yes, you read that right: designer swimwear that is budget-friendly and oh, so gorgeous. Perfect for that trip you have planned to Hawaii, Cali or even (dare I say) a trip to the Kenna sauna!
