When was the last time you took a break? Not a vacation but a break from your regular routine. Here are 10 ways to unwind and enjoy your weekend:
“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Gandhi
Read a new book
Walk into your local library, grab the first book you see and sit down or simply purchase a book online and commit to finishing it this weekend.
Turn off technology or unplug from your phone for at least 24 hours.
Go for a walk
Going for a hike or a walk can be a perfect way to get some exercise while enjoying the serenity of the outdoors.
Spend time with family and friends
You could take a small road trip to the lake or simply go out for a meal. Being surrounded by loved ones can be rejuvenating.
Foster the art of doing almost nothing. Just lie in bed and enjoy the moments.
Let your imagination be your guide. Create art, crafts, words, photos, movies, or stories with no deadlines.
Cook a meal
Often meals made during the week are rushed due to time constraints. This weekend treat yourself to a home made 3 course meal with your favorite bottle of wine.
Here are tips for staring a herb garden.
Declutter your space
Get most of your cleaning, jobs, and errands done during the week. Resist over-scheduling your weekend by leaving pockets of time to unwind. The less you schedule, the more you can go with the flow.
