I don’t know about you, but some weekends I just don’t want to make plans in advance. Then, by the time the weekend finally arrives, I end up bored and wish I has made plans earlier.
Luckily, I have a whole list of things that I like to do that keep me entertained while ensuring I have a good time all weekend. By the time I return to work, I feel nice and relaxed and I’m ready to get cracking.
Here are a few fun things you can do if you’re bored this weekend:
Play some fun games online
If you haven’t yet heard of Book of Ra, I’m about to open up a whole new world for you. This game is ridiculously fun, and there are also a bunch of other interesting and exciting games that you can try.
One of the great things about playing these games is you can actually win real money- so not only are you having fun, but you could be making money while you’re hanging out at home in your sweats.
If you’ve always wanted to write a book, but you keep putting it off, now is your chance. NaNoWriMo is just a few months away in November, so now is a good time to begin your first novel, or at least get a few of your ideas down.
If you’re not planning to write a book, but you need a creative outlet, why not try some freewriting or journaling? Writing can also be extremely helpful if you’re looking for a chance to work on your attitude- write a gratitude list next time you’re feeling down, and see how much better you feel afterwards.
Ok, ok, this is unlikely to be the most fun you have all weekend. But you’ll have plenty of time for fun through the week when you don’t need to cook or eat out, and instead have healthy, delicious meals waiting for you. Meal prep doesn’t need to take all weekend either- head to the supermarket, grab a few things, and you can even enjoy some free time playing games or reading a book while you’re waiting for some of it to cook. Trust me, one week of pre-planned home-made meals ready to go, and you’ll be a meal prep convert.
Catch up on Netflix
Let’s face it- we were all thinking it. I’m not a huge TV fan, but I will admit that the occasional weekend of binge watching while eating snacks is good for all of us. Of course, this shouldn’t be something you should do every weekend, but if you really need to chill out, invite a few friends around for a movie marathon or start a new series with that special someone this weekend.
