I had a really good weekend. A while back I learned the secret to stretching your weekend. Here are my tips:
Go out during the week. Friday and Saturday nights are, well let's face it, amateur night. Try a Tuesday night activity. Catch a movie on Wednesday. Or do drinks on a Thursday.
To piggyback on the previous point, if you can at least do something Friday, it seems to feel like a lifetime away from Sunday.
If you can, "get up and at 'em" on one of those off days, it just gives you the feeling that you have more of your day.
Finally, if you can help it, be greedy about your days off. Only do what you want to do. You already may feel annoyed by work, why have more tension on your free days. For the parents, I'll give you a pass on this one.
Yep, those are my non- scientific, but tested by yours truly, methods for a successfully stretched weekend. If you have any tips of your own, please share.
