Every working professional would agree that there are two words that bring immense joy to one’s heart, the words being “salary credited” and “Weekends.” The very thought of these words is more than enough to bring an ear to ear smile on our face. Coming back to weekends, we spend most of our weekdays waiting for the weekend to arrive and our hearts are filled with nothing but joy when the weekend arrives.
Here are 6 ways in which we can make the most of our weekend :-
- Take a Nap
The weekdays are a set of dreadful days where we have to part our ways with our bed, most of the times we aren’t ready to do so. However, on the weekends, you can put your alarm off and experience the blissful feeling of sleeping for a few extra hours, but make sure you do not end up sleeping the whole day.
- Spend time with your loved ones
Our daily hectic schedules make it difficult to spend time with our loved ones. Weekend gives you that time, so make sure at least once a month you make it an effort to spend time with your near and dear ones because at the end of the day life is too short, so make sure you make the most of it.
- Do your chores
We all have a list of chores that we have been putting off throughout the weekdays, hoping that when the weekend arrives we will get them done. So make sure you make a list of these chores and tick them off when the weekend arrives.
According to studies, doing chores (household work) has a soothing and calming effect on your brain as it is known to release stress, tension and also helps in lowering depression.
- Spend Alone time
We live in a chaotic world, sometimes things around us get so noisy that we can’t hear our own voice. It is important to spend some alone time, and reflect upon your life. Out of the four weekends that you get in a month, make sure you devote at least one weekend for some alone time.
- Take rest
Sometimes, nothing feels better than staying in the comfort of your home. Curl up in your bed and either watch your favorite movie or read a favorite book of your choice and trust me this will help you uplift your mood and help you resume your weekdays with a better mood.
- Hobby time
Every person has a hobby, be it dancing, painting, singing or writing. Somewhere between our busy lives, we have forgotten to devote time for our hobbies. Devoting time for your hobbies helps you connect with your inner self and is said to have a calming and a smoothing effect on your brain and also works wonders for mental health.
- Plan your week
If you plan your week well, you are more likely to have a productive week. Make sure you plan out everything, from your bills to events to appointments to everything else that is important. Divide the week accordingly and you are good to go.
