You should not spend your time in total idleness, otherwise, you will have the impression that you did not do anything when the holidays are over.

To really feel yourself on vacation, you need to know how to get out of everyday life, and it goes through a break with work. To avoid falling into the trap of working at home, define a period of time to respond to the emails connected with work or your studies – 10-15 minutes is enough.
