The weekend. Aahhh the weekend…The time I look forward to, dread having to give up and dream about throughout the week. It represents two glorious days in which there is no structure, no routine, no deadlines, no demands, no awkward conversations, no office politics and no dressing up. The time is mine and I can set my schedule how I want. I can do what I want and that is how I like it.
I thought about this topic for the post as my weekend was winding down (and I was dreading the start of the work week). There is just something magical when a person is stripped (methaphorically) of the professional demeanor that we have to have during the week and can just relax and enjoy the weekend. I think we become different people. I know that some of my own co-workers wouldn’t recognize me if they saw me on the weekend.
1. Sleep In
2. Focus on something that makes you happy
3. Go for a walk – somewhere, anywhere
There is nothing greater than being able to sleep in on a weekend. I know that as we get older, it seems to be harder. Our bodies are use to getting up at a certain time (damn that alarm clock!) and that is just awful. Really, really awful. So, if you are one of the lucky ones to be able to sleep in…it is just an amazing experience. I have to say, getting to sleep in and waking up after that sleep, is just divine.
The second thing should be focused on something that makes you happy. The weekend is your time. I know for me, I love to read. Just absolutely love it and that is what I love to do on weekend. I grab whatever book I am ready, settle down and just read. Whatever it is you like to do – just do it! If it’s going to make you happy, why wouldn’t you spend your weekend time on doing it.
As for the last pick, going for a walk is something I encourage. First it gets you out of the house, second it can take you to great places and third, it keeps you healthy. I love walking. Especially on the weekends when I can discover new places such as a park, walking on a beach, window shopping down a busy avenue…the possibilities are endless.
