"What Should I Do Over The Weekend?"

Are you tired of spending your free time aimlessly scrolling through social media or binge-watching TV shows? Do you feel like you never have enough time to do the things you truly enjoy? Fear not, my friend, because I have some high-priority categories and time management strategies that will help you make the most of your free time!

"What are your plans for the weekend?" "What am I going to do today after work?"

These are probably some of the most common questions we ask ourselves.

We have a lot of options these days. We could be occupied for countless lifetimes by the amount of information we could be consuming from the internet alone! Therefore, it is more important than ever to manage our free time and prevent it from being wasted on mindless internet scrolling that we will come to regret.

Personally, I hate to waste a lot of time planning out what I'll do this weekend and in my free time in general. So I developed some strategies to avoid this as much as possible.

I figured if I make a list of regular activities that I already know I enjoy and find meaningful, I won't have to spend as much time deciding what to do. Having a variety of options at my disposal I will always have a Plan B in case Plan A does not work out.

I came up with the five categories of high-priority activities you can do listed below, that also contributes to all facets of our well-being!

Now, take out a piece of paper and write down at least 5 activities under each of these categories. Then you will have a ready-to-use list right in front of you next time you wonder what to do with your free time!

High-Priority Categories

1. Rest & Recharge!

Find a way to relax that works for you! For example, go for a walk outside, meditate or simply take a nap. Rest is essential for your mental and physical health and it helps you recharge so that you can be more productive at work and feel your best at whatever you do later!
