There was a time when weekends were for binge drinking and partying all night. But now that you spend Monday to Friday chasing deadlines and being as productive as possible, you should strive to make your weekends a time to relax and unwind. The weekend is a great way to recharge your batteries for the week ahead.
What is the best way to spend those precious hours? While relaxing should definitely be on your agenda, it is also important to devote time for your hobbies, your relationships and even your health.
Need ideas on how you can make the weekend more relaxing for you? Here are our tips:
If you are always sitting in front of your computer or always holding your phone, it can get more tempting to check your work email for updates on urgent projects. Think of weekends as your time for a digital detox. If you can, disconnect from your work account and only turn on the alerts for urgent messages.
If you really need to work, try to limit it to four hours, otherwise, you won’t give yourself enough time to recharge. Spend the weekend enjoying the things you normally can’t do on weekdays. Spend more time outdoors. Bond with your loved ones. Watch a movie. This period away from work can help you be more productive when you return.
If you go to the gym during weekdays, weekends offer a good opportunity to look for a different venue for your usual fitness routine. Maybe go to the park and jog for an hour or meet up with friends and do your HIIT training together. You can even attend a dance class if that’s something you’ve been meaning to do.
You need to invest time for self-improvement. Even a couple of hours can make a huge difference in a year. You don’t even need to go to a school! There are a lot online classes that can help you expand your knowledge. Even just spending time to read a book can help you learn something new. The important thing here is to find growth in a way that’s not directly related to the work that you do. Find something you’re really interested in learning and commit to it. Who knows? You might find a side hustle that will bring you more money.
How often do you see the people who are important to you? Everyone’s probably busy on weekdays and catch ups are just difficult. Weekends are perfect for bonding sessions and meeting up with friends. You need to invest in strengthening your relationships with people who are important to you. If you always say no to dinner invitations during the week day, make sure to say yes to people who are important to you during the weekend.
The weekend is the perfect time to pamper yourself too. On typical work days, you probably rush through your bath routine because you need to accomplish a thousand other things. The weekend is the best time to enjoy a long relaxing bath. You should make it a weekly habit to set aside at least an hour to pamper yourself in the tub.
Keep any kind of distraction away and don’t move your “appointment” with yourself. Consider your relaxation time as your top priority. After all, your health and well-being are important, right? You need to make a commitment to take care of yourself too.
