It is very important to make sure you celebrate your achievements once finishing the academic year!

Here are some ways I made sure to treat myself after all my hard work this year in finishing my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling!

Dinner and a night out

Perhaps an obvious one but me and my course mates had a celebratory trip to Nando’s along the Brayford on the evening of our final deadline and had some drinks afterwards at The Mailbox and Be at One.

This was a nice way to end the year as we all were so relieved to finish the year and this trip was a nice way to say goodbye to everyone for the summer!

Day trip to the beach

My housemates and I drove to Skegness Beach and spent the day enjoying the sunny weather as Skegness is only about an hour by car or two by bus (there is a direct bus – Stagecoach).

We enjoyed ourselves and had some fish and chips along the beach and walked along the pier, this was a nice trip as it was very different to the usual sights of Lincoln which we usually explore.

We also visited a local trampoline park which was a very fun activity to do together as there were foam pits, obstacles, and interactive games!

A trip to the cinema

With two big cinemas in Lincoln, I enjoy visiting the cinema, particularly the Odeon as I find it better value for money, I recently watched Fast X with a course mate and we both enjoyed ourselves!

The cinema is a great way to relax, empty your mind and enjoy yourself after a few weeks of stress and revision!

Especially during the summer, the cinema is a good way of avoiding the sun if it gets too hot, and the air conditioning is always a lifesaver!

Pottery painting

I enjoy visiting the ‘Little Pottery Studio’ at St Mark’s as this is a nice way to relax with friends and take home some hand-painted pottery!

Most recently I have made an owl mug and a flower plate which I love using as I think they are really sweet.

Pottery is such a great mindfulness activity as the venue plays calming background music and has a peaceful environment for yourself or you and your mates to enjoy!
