It's very tempting to use weekends to make yourself useful, but you have to learn to resist! Here are 10 things not to do to really enjoy these short holidays!
Let's start with the obvious: on weekends, we don't work! If we don't have to work at least. Saturday and Sunday are for relaxing and your work emails can just wait until Monday while you recharge your batteries.
Take advantage of these two days to do a big spring cleaning, see all the friends and all the family, tell the children to hurry up, have them babysit for zumba and realize on Sunday evening that we would have needed another three days to do everything we had planned is not very reasonable. So sit down a bit… and relax!
Get the kids to bed at a reasonable time
Do you really think the kids will lose their school rhythm if they go to bed a little later on Friday night? Do you think it will go wrong if they watch a movie while eating popcorn when they should be putting on their pajamas? You have the right to deviate a little, it's the weekendfor everyone!
Eat at the same time as the week
Eating the same meals, at the same time, as if you were at work and the children were at school is such a bore… Take advantage of the weekend to have picnics,to have snacks and to eat when you are hungry. You're in no rush today!
Be on your 36
Feeling pretty, okay, but for once, let's forget the judgment of others. Whether you want to put on an all-too-chic dress for an ordinary day or simple yoga clothes, you have the right. You can even spend the day in a dressing gown if you like! Neighbors won't come and assess your attire.
You can do a little, but you have to know how to measure it. If we are too busy doing everything we failed to do during the week and solving big problems, we will no longer have time to play with the children, get together and relax with the family..
Too many children's games
Going skating, doing gymnastics at the community center, in an amusement center, going through the library and ending up at the cinema is not better! You also have to make time for yourself, just like children need free time to play alone.
Paste in front of the computer
We get caught easily. We open the computer to look at Facebook for a few minutes and find ourselves a few hours later commenting on an article that we disliked andbicker on Twitter. Bickering and reading the news all weekend isn't very relaxing, nor very cheerful.
What did you do today? Nothing? So much the better! If you managed to take a two-hour nap, watched a good movie, and put some nail polish on your toes and your daughter's, that's good enough. You don't have to ALWAYS feel useful.
Take care of each other
Those who are in a relationship can finally spend time in love without being stuck in the routine. Enjoy! Take some time to do nothing but relax in the same room, play in your lover's hair, or read, propped up on their chest, while they watch their TV shows.
