No more wasting that precious time.
So, I've created a list of things to do on the weekends for you! From free to moderately priced, there is something for everyone!
What to do this weekend:
-Start your mornings with a cup of coffee and a game (farkle, cards, or whatever you own) One player games can be fun and relaxing as well!
-Visit the library. Libraries have books, but they can also have movies, tv shows, audiobooks, and CDs.
-Create a restaurant passport for your town. Include every eating place you would like to try (you know, those places you drive by and think I should really try that place) Make a goal to get a passport stamp at each one! (aka check the boxes)
-Check out a park in your town. Walk around and talk with your spouse, ask a friend, take your dog, whatever - but get moving!
-Visit a secondhand store and "window-shop" Look for old treasures, scout out furniture for upcycling and redecorating, and laugh at weird, funny-looking things that you discover.
-Walk around your downtown and discover new places! Walk into a shop, you've always seen but never checked out
-Pack a picnic and enjoy the outdoors with a friend or family member.
-In the winter, window shop the mall and get some walking in where it's warm. Make lists of good gift ideas you see as you walk.
-Bake some cookies or other goodie to hand out to people at church and work. (or just to eat yourself!)
-Do a craft. Create some holiday decor (for whatever holiday is closest), paint a picture, color in an adult coloring book, etc. It's really relaxing!
-Try out the cheap seat movie theater in your town. If you don't have one, rent a movie at home, but go all out with blankets, popcorn, and snacks.
-Try a new dinner recipe. Find something that looks more fun than your average meal, get the ingredients and make a special dinner for your significant other or a group of girl friends.
-Sit in a cute coffeehouse, buy a delicious drink, and soak up some inspiration. Get work done, write a poem, blog, or paint a picture. Take some "me-time"
-Go see a high school basketball game, play, football game, swim meet, speech and debate meet or other club competition. It doesn't cost much at all, and supporting your community is never a bad thing!
-Visit a "paint your own pottery" or step by step canvas painting business. You will have fun, spend a memorable afternoon or evening, and have something cool to take home.
-Go to a local ballet, play, concert, production, or sporting event. You pick your poison, but the takeaway is the same. Go get some culture, and support someone's passion!
- Take a new fitness class like yoga or kickboxing. You will burn some calories, get yourself out of your comfort zone, meet new people, and maybe even have some fun.
