5 Great Ways to Relax this Weekend
1. Try a New Recipe
When was the last time you cooked something new? The weekend is the perfect time to try one of those new recipes you’ve been saving. For me cooking is a very relaxing activity. How about you?
Or, if you’re not in the mood to cook, order take-out from a restaurant you haven’t eaten at yet. And if you’re really adventurous, go for something exotic like Moroccan, Persian or Thai!
2. Start a New TV Series or a New Movie
Do you get hooked into a series on netflix and end up binging the whole season or two? Amazon Prime has a great series that is at the top of my list, “The Last Tycoon”. It’s based on an unfinished book by F. Scott Fitzgerald and takes place in 1930’s Hollywood. I even think my husband would like this one! Have you watched this yet?
3. Read a Book
What a novel concept… hahaha, sorry for the silly pun. But really, we spend so much time on our phones and computers, that it’s easy to forget how relaxing and therapeutic reading a book can be. Biographies and nonfiction are my favorite reads. Do you have any favorite books to recommend?
4. Take a Walk
Being outdoors is a beautiful thing, so make the most of the end of summer by getting out and walking for a good half hour or more. Walking around a favorite neighborhood can be fun too. I love to get an up-close look at some of my favorite homes.
5. Spend time with Friends and Family
Weekdays can be so busy, so make time to reconnect with family members and good friends on the weekend. My bestie and I don’t see each other that often because she lives three hours away, but when we do, we start of right where we left off and giggle until our tummies hurt!
