1. Don’t Plan:
The best way to spend your weekend is by not planning anything about it in advance. Let the day come, and let everything be spontaneous. You spend your whole week according to a perfect plan. Give your weekend a chance to breathe in freedom. Don’t make any prior commitment for the day.
However absurd this may sound but nothing can be better than having a free weekend, where you don’t have a to-do list. Weekends are not meant to be spent but enjoyed. In order to enjoy your weekend, try this out. Don’t plan anything, let the day unveil new activities for you, just sit back and relax.
2. Don’t Over-Think:
Most people waste their time in thinking too much about what they would like to do on a weekend. But, they end up doing nothing on the day. They just think too much. Follow step one and take the first step towards a fun-filled weekend. Thinking too much will leave you confused and stressed, take it easy, do something you always wanted to do but never had time to. The time is now, on a duty- free Saturday.
3. Family Outing:
Nothing is better than spending quality time with your family. The whole week you work for yourself and for your family but sadly don’t have time for the most important people in your life. Weekend is the perfect day when you can be with your family. You can take your wife and kids for dinner in a good restaurant. Nothing can give you more joy than the smiles you will put on their faces.
After working for the whole week, you need some time to relax and rejuvenate. Spending quality time with your family will help you in relaxing and rejuvenating. If you’re a family man, with no kids then you can take your wife out for a date. You can still keep your love alive by doing these small things. The most enjoyable day would mean to go out to the country side, pack some good food, get in your leisure wear and go out on a long drive. It is fun and will give you a break from the work, files and office.
4. Meet Old Buddies:
If you don’t have a clue what to do on a Saturday night, just meet up with your old buddies and fun will follow. In a fast paced life, we hardly get time to spend with our family or our dear friends. Weekends are a perfect getaway from this fast paced life. You can either go to your pals place or meet them at any bar or restaurant.
As you share old jokes and enjoy a drink, you will find out that nothing can be compared to the time you have with your friends. Make the most of it. Avoid thinking about your work or of any incomplete project that you have to complete. Just live the moment and enjoy your time. Remember, there is time for everything, a time to rest and a time to work. Do not discuss work when you are with friends. Share your good time with them, this will help you unwind.
5. Talk to Your Partner:
There’s nothing that can work better than a candlelight dinner with your partner. Take your wife or partner out and just spend quality time, talking to him/her. It will relax you and make you feel good about yourself, at the same time; your partner will feel special and wanted. Mostly the hectic work schedules leave no time to meet your partner or talk to them. This hampers relationships and can result in frustrations. Go out for a quiet dinner; spend time conversing and chilling out.
6. Party at Home:
It’s a Saturday and it has been a long time since you met your friends and extended family. Why not invite them to dinner? The fun thing will be to cook your favorite food yourself and take help from your better-half. It will give a personalised touch to your friends and family. The happiness you will get is unbound. After dinner, talk to the guests and unwind. A sure-shot way for a fun-filled Saturday night.
7. Cultivate a Hobby:
Wanted to cook, play guitar, read, write? The time is now to cultivate your hobby. A hobby is not just something done in free time but it is an activity, which relaxes your senses and gives you pleasure. It could be anything you wanted to do – play guitar, read a book, cook with your partner, write a story, watch a movie at home, listen to soft music, stargazing. Any activity that rejuvenates you, do it on a Saturday night.
8. Twisting by the Pool:
Want to do something special without much effort, try this. Organize a pool side dinner for your partner. Order your favorite cuisine and spend a romantic evening. The cool breeze by the pool side will lift your spirits and make you happy. This rejuvenating experience will prepare you for the next week and will help you combat Monday morning blues.
