The Best Tips For a Happy, Healthy Weekend
It is Friday and the thought that the weekend is here almost sends everyone into “planning the weekend” mode. However, what is your idea of a weekend? Is it late night dinners, night rides, partying with friends & family, catching up on all new releases, lots of TV, or a weekend getaway maybe? Well, to be honest, this is exactly what many people perceive an ideal weekend to be. With cultural differences and lifestyle changes, most people’s idea of a weekend is precisely this.
However, do you think this is how a weekend should be? Could you make your weekend a bit healthier yet happier? Here are some tips on how you can have a happy and healthy weekend.
- Spend more time outdoors and try to connect with nature. Did you know that simply walking on a lawn of fresh grass barefoot could do wonders to your feet, if done on a regular basis? Try such natural relaxing therapies.
- Learn something new. You could join a class of maybe painting, aerobics, dancing, or anything that you feel will help you rejuvenate. This will help you meet new people, take up a hobby, feel more relaxed, and help you stay healthy in both mind and body.
- Play games. You do not have to catch up with friends over dinners or late night slumber parties. Rather you could arrange a playdate. It could be any outdoor sports such as badminton, basketball, or volleyball or some indoor games such as a game of Pictionary, Taboo, Monopoly, or Scrabble. While outdoor games keep you physically fit, indoor games could help your focus and improve the way you think.
- Most importantly, eat right and drink plenty. We are not talking about eating junk food or boozing and getting in and out of the Ontario drug rehabs but eating healthy food and drinking plenty of good fluids such as water and natural juices.
A healthy body is indeed a happy body.
