The weekend is around the corner, with the excitement for the weekend there is a lot of confusion about weekend plans too. We often choose to spend a lazy Saturday after a full-on party night with friends on Friday after office.
Instead of having another lazy day why not make your Sunday a fruitful one, with small plans you can add something to your day. I know work-life sometimes become a very hectic part of your day-to-day and taking out time for your personal activities becomes quite difficult and tricky as well but believe me, planning your weekends in a proper way can help you to catch a lot. You can choose a long weekend for vacation and out-of-town activities but prefer a short one to meet with friends, catch up with your personal pending work and spend some time with your family as well.
I know weekends are supposed to be on the couch with blanket and comedy series on tv but why now prepare for Monday blues with something recreational on Sunday?
I have listed down some of my favorite activities that would surely make your day worth trying on a Sunday:
1. Sunday Outdoor Activities with Friends or Family
Hey, can you step out on a Sunday? Believe me, it’s a great day why not go for a drive and dare not choose your regular office route. Get something from the subway make a playlist and go for a long drive, or plan a good outdoor activity like hiking, visiting an orphanage, picnic, or something different. Spend time with yourself or with your loved ones, plan something with them and execute the same.
2. Declutter Your Home
Decluttering! Okay relax, don’t do it in one shot – decluttering can be a fun activity too if you plan it. Decluttering on a Sundayis like therapy, removing old things, arranging things properly, and making space for new things. It is said that from time to time decluttering brings positivity to your living space.
Plan your declutter, like don’t use so many hours, choose one space at a time like cupboard, self, room corners. This will take hardly an hour to do so but you will surely feel good and more organized.
3. Plan Your Upcoming Sunday

6. Relax and Read
Reading a trending book after office hours is quite boring at times, I understand when you return home from a hectic day it isn’t a possible or engaging task. Why not read a book while relaxing on the couch, you can start a book on one a Sunday and continue reading 10-15 pages every weekend, depending on your mood.
Believe me, reading books is a good habit it helps in increasing knowledge, opening some new aspects and perspectives. You become habitual of this there is no good friend as books.
