Life is undoubtedly satisfying and beautiful, but it can be stressful, as well. We are trying our best to keep the things together, but things beyond our control are happening and disbalance is inevitable – which leads to productivity decrease. Then how do we put things in their own place?
We are living in a digital era, surrounded by technology that really adds to the stress. From social media, to ads, click-bait articles – a huge defocus revolves around us. But how do we avoid that stuff?
Here are few examples of weekend habits you can apply to recharge your batteries and increase your productivity:
1. READ A BOOK
From J.K.Rowling’s fantasies to Agatha Christie’s crimes, reading can be really satisfying. Not only it relaxes your mind and your being, it also has a lot of benefits. You will learn new words, expand your vocabulary and refresh your ideas. If you are a philosophy lover, get ready to learn many new things about you and the world around you. Instead of meaningless scrolling through Facebook, undertake an exciting adventure through the kingdom of books and knowledge.
2. SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY
In this modern era, it is very unpopular spending your time with your family. But, do not be easily deceived by the cliches. Spending quality time with you parents and siblings can be significantly helpful. Not only they are your closest friends, but they also are the people that use to know you for your whole life, and know exactly what works for you. Therefore, do not cease to share you experiences with them, for they know you even better than yourself. Share your good memories, ask for an advice, and cherish the life together.
3. SPEND SOME TIME IN NATURE
Not only is refreshing, but it also is exciting and adventurous going out there. Get ready and behold the wonders of Mother Gaia and her mighty kingdom. Myriads of creatures are wandering through her hair in perfect balance and harmony. You will witness flora that will touch your soul and the fauna will tenderly caress the irises of your eyes. Many wonderful things happen out there. Many questions appear in your mind, but many conclusions as well. Recharge your batteries and get to know yourself better.
4. DEDICATE SOME TIME TO YOUR HOME
It is really popular eating out in a restaurant and posting you meal on the social media. But has every crossed your mind that cooking for yourself can be a real remedy for the bad things revolving around you? Not only you will get to know yourself better, but it also increases the self-confidence.
Hence, start your day with cleaning up your habitat. Getting rid of the invisible dust and seeing your room tidy will stimulate you for the rest of the day. Start experimenting in the kitchen. It’s a wonderful way to find out what you like, what are you interested in, to learn and fabricate your own process of creating.
Birth of the happiness can be found in the change, but the change can only be found inside you, not around you.
