'Be spontaneous' - sounds simply right? Well it is. But all to often you finish work on Friday and with a blink of an eye you're dragging yourself to work on Monday morning asking yourself, “where did the weekend go?”
While it’s great to sleep in on the weekend and just chill you need to get out and have some fun! Without it you may feel like you’ve wasted the time you have been given away from your mundane 9-5 workday.
Here are some tips on how to make the most of your weekend, the biggest being - you guessed it - being spontaneous!
- If you have no plans and you get invited out, go. Don’t be lazy. Get dressed up and go. Have fun :)
- Get in the car and drive. You don’t have to go far to find a new part of town you haven’t explored before. Find a new cafe, go op shopping - the options are endless.
- If you want to stay home try to venture off the couch for a bit. Get in the kitchen and try a new recipe, make afternoon snacks and have a Sunday sesh - alone, with a friend or partner - it doesn’t matter.
- Teach yourself something you’ve always wanted to learn. The internet is full of great courses (usually free) to teach you just about anything!
The goal: When you go to work on Monday and your colleagues ask “What did you get up to this weekend?” you are not allowed to answer with “not much.” Get out there and do something you an tell your friends about. You will feel so much more productive and your weekend will not be a waste.
Life is short. Get out there and do what you love, with the people you love.
