Calming Weekend Routines


We often view the weekend as a time to unwind from the week, but have you ever thought of it as a source of fuel for the week ahead?

We drain our physical, mental, and emotional reserves all week long as we work to meet a variety of demands. Depending on how you spend your weekend, you could be putting further stress on your reserves or you could be recharging for the coming week.

Here are a few ideas for calming and recharging weekend rituals:

  • Pursue a passion
  • Take a microadventure
  • Enjoy unscheduled recreation
  • Exercise with your family
  • Get an extra hour of sleep
  • Spend time outdoors
  • Stargaze
  • Go technology-free for a day
  • Take a time-out with no work/school talk
  • Meditate
  • Write in a journal
  • Declutter your home
  • Plan menus and meal prep
