How often have you thought to yourself on Monday morning, "Where did the weekend go?" Or, "It feels like I didn't even have time to relax"? Saturday and Sunday for most people is a time to get caught up on all the things they didn't have time to do during the week, see friends, have fun, and do it all over again five days later. For many this routine leaves them feeling just as exhausted on Monday morning as they felt on Friday afternoon. The challenge: how to simultaneously decompress from the week, recharge, and create positive emotions and experiences. For many people this is hard to accomplish within a 48 hour period, though, not impossible.
Here's how to do it:
- Take a break from work. That's right, actually give it a rest. Make a decision on Friday evening to turn off your work mode. Imagine you're stepping out of the work version of you and into the lighthearted weekend version of yourself. Be okay relaxing, guilt-free.
Will your weekend be monotonous and draining or will it be refreshing and energizing? Own your weekend!
