Weekends Are For You

March 24, 2022

During recent months, it has not always been easy to keep a firm grip on things like time of day and days of the week.  Although this is meant to offer a bit of humor, there is definitely truth in it.  Things like working from home or having no social functions to attend make it difficult to see the difference between a week day and the weekend.  And we need the weekend. In the same way sleep is necessary for a healthy body and mind, the weekend gives us a time to relax and reboot.   

There are a few ways our can create a differentiation between the weekends and the rest of days to be sure you are giving yourself the break you need. 

Create some fun whether that means making your own personal dance party or starting a new jigsaw puzzle—to each ones own!

Since you may not be able to enjoy a meal at your favorite restaurant, reserve more elaborate or richer meals for the weekend so they are a little more special.

Even if you aren’t wearing your regular work clothes during the week, be sure to find clothes that make you feel comfortable enough to fully relax during your weekend.  You can’t go wrong with a pair of PrAna leggings! 

And maybe break the rules a little—not rules that keep you healthy like social distancing and wearing a mask—but things like dragging a beanbag out to your patio or throwing all your pillows and blankets in the living room to create an ultimate relaxation space.

With these ideas in mind plus a few of your own—have a great weekend!
