I love the weekend, and since I've been working it seriously could not come soon enough. I usually let my backpack fall on the floor, toss my phone on my bed, and literally crash as soon as I reach my bedroom. This semester I haven't been stressed, or worried about finishing up my homework, and fitting in life along side too. But, this semester I have been tired, and by Friday I'm over my busy schedule.
You think I'd be a pro at enjoying my weekend, but only because of Pinterest. The truth is that once my weekend comes, I create two extremes. I either do everything, and then wish I had a weekend, or do absolutely nothing, and wish I had been more productive. There's just no in between. So, I've been trying to work on that, and I thought I'd pass my tips onto you, because I have a feeling I'm not alone in this area, amirite? You're welcome!
2. DITCH NOTIFICATIONS: Life is so much more peaceful when I ditch all social media, and expectations to rely back to people. During my weekend sometimes, I turn my phone on airplane mode, that way I live in the moment.
3. PLAN AHEAD: There are so many ways I like to plan for my weekend. I will schedule dates with my friends, and buy all the snacks you may want, and make a list of all the ways you want your weekend to look like. One thing I love doing over the weekend is working on blog posts, and I like to start early during my week by making a brainstorming list!
4. ME TIME: This is my favorite. I love journaling, taking a bath, making phone calls with my girlfriends, catching up on 7th Heaven, or do some reading. Take a few hours out of your weekend to enjoy some special treatment for yourself.
