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
- Go technology-free for a day
- Take a time-out with no work/school talk
- Write in a journal
- Declutter your home
- Plan menus and meal prep
