In life, you should aim to enjoy every weekend. The weekend is the time to put aside your work and focus on recharging so you can get physically, mentally and emotionally ready for the coming week.
So how do you enjoy every weekend?
- Tip #1: Drop all your work
I don’t care how busy you are; you should still make it a point to enjoy every weekend no matter how many reports you have due at work or school.
Don’t overwork yourself. It’s important to take every weekend off work to recharge.
- Tip #2: Switch off your phone
Even if you are worried your boss might call you to ask about that report. Your boss must know that your weekends are your own private time and he/she shouldn’t interfere.
Switching off your phone and making yourself inaccessible to the outside world is definitely a great tip to enjoy every weekend.
- Tip #3: Invite family and friends over
This is a great tip if you are determined to enjoy every weekend. Maybe you are already living with your immediate family. Then call your aunts, uncles and cousins over. Call your friends over and use the weekend to catch up with them.
Remind yourself why a simple healthy lifestyle requires healthy relationships.

- Tip #4: Cook healthy food
You are trying to enjoy every weekend, so don’t throw your healthy diet out the window. Now isn’t the time to gorge on unhealthy food.
The weekend is not some time off your journey of enjoying a simple healthy lifestyle; it’s still a part of the journey, so eat healthy. Remind yourself why a simple healthy lifestyle requires a good diet.

- Tip #5: Garden
Gardening is definitely a must-do if you want to enjoy every weekend. I tend to my vegetable garden every weekend.
Use the weekends to take care of the source of your healthy foods. If you don’t have a garden you should make it a point to have one. Limited space? Put some pots on your window sills.

- Tip #6: Explore the outdoors
Especially if you are cooped up indoors on weekdays. This Sunday I spent my entire day outside, reconnecting with nature and enjoying some time away from technology. If you do that, I promise you’ll definitely enjoy every weekend.
- Tip #7: Switch off the television
I know watching TV might sound like a great way to enjoy every weekend. But trust me, TV has no place in your journey of enjoying a simple healthy lifestyle.
If you truly want to enjoy every weekend, then switch off that television and do something worthwhile with your time instead.
- Tip #8: Read
Reading is a great activity to do if you want to enjoy every weekend. I use the weekend to read my bible farther that I do on weekdays. I also occasionally enjoy a great book.
There’s a lot of reading material to choose from so you can enjoy every weekend. Invest your time in reading, it will be worth it.
Exercise caution as you read. I recommend my post are you aware of what you read?
Remember that reading is a great way to nurture your personal development.
- Tip #9: Clean your surroundings
Don’t treat cleaning as an enemy. You should aim to keep your surroundings clean as part of your journey of enjoying a simple healthy lifestyle.
Normally, you are too busy to do thorough cleaning on weekdays. So, do your cleaning on weekends and don’t let that dirt pile on into the next week.
I promise if you learn to appreciate activities like cleaning, you’ll enjoy every weekend.
- Tip #10: Revisit your goals
You might be so busy on weekdays that you don’t have time to think about what you want in life.
Revisiting your goals and assessing your progress is the perfect way to enjoy every weekend. Not every one of your goals is work-related, I hope. You should have goals of what you want out of life in general.
Use the weekend to assess where you are on these goals. Are you making progress? Read these 12 signs you are making progress in your life.
