We have a plan for every weekend. And as the weekend rolls by, we completely forget about the plan and laze it out. And then as Sunday inches towards the end, we lament over how we’ve wasted yet another weekend.
Not anymore. Here are some good weekend ideas that will leave you more fulfilled, and you’ll feel more relaxed and satisfied.
Let’s discuss what you can do this weekend.
Spend time with family and friends
A lot of us want some me time on the weekend where we can just go online and scroll on social media. Or we can watch our favorite shows on repeat. How about taking this weekend off from these activities and using it to spend with family and friends.
It’s important to form bonds and reconnect with old friends. It will be a great weekend activity and you’ll feel more loved and connected.
Pursue Your Passion
Remember how you were a guitar hero back in college and you thought you’ll be a rock star? Or when you loved painting and thought you’ll be a big artist one day? If you’ve become lost in responsibilities and forgotten those old passions, it’s time to rekindle the fire in you.
Get off your couch and get started. Tighten up those strings or brush the dust off your old canvas. Take up your old hobbies and travel back in time to feel the same level of energy and passion you use to feel.
If you have kindness in your heart, don’t let it go waste. It’s a rare virtue and one that needs to be promoted. You can do volunteer work at a local community or at an organization that serves a cause that’s close to your heart.
You can work at an animal rescue shelter, national park, local library, old age homes, or even do political campaigning for the party you support. There’s so much to do!
Weekend travel means you go to a nearby city and spend a day or two there. Completely unwind, try new things, meet new people, and get a new outlook towards life.
You can drive to another city or take a flight to your destination. Getting some fresh air and a bit of exercise can do wonders for your body and spirits.
Find a New Hobby or Sports Activity
You can join a club and find some new hobbies. You can even join a sports club and try your hand at basketball or badminton – whatever you like the most. Clubs offer a number of activities and some of them can be indoor sports as well.
If you think you cannot handle strenuous activities, something as light as foosball or ping pong can also be a refreshing break from daily monotony.
Spend Time in DIY Projects
Remember the last DIY video you watched and thought you should try it out? A weekend is a perfect time to try your hand in creating beautiful DIY things.
Whether you want to try your hand at making a new bench for your yard, crafting an art piece with copper wires, growing plants in eggshells, or creating pillowcases from old clothes – there are a number of DIY projects you can work on.
So Much to Do!
There’s so much to do and so little time. Spend your weekend time judicially so you don’t waste it all on just scrolling social media or binge watching Netflix. Utilize these ideas for a perfect end of the week.
