You know the story; it’s the middle of the week and you are already wishing the weekend was here. But think about how you have been spending those weekends. I bet you are like most of us in that you say you are going to get all kinds of things done once the weekend arrives, and then you spend 90% of the time in your sweats binge watching Netflix or reruns on television. Hey! That is no way to live. It’s time to take back your weekend and do some exciting things with it! Try some of these activities to keep yourself occupied this weekend.

Find a Music Festival

Few things in life are better than listening to live music. It just soothes the soul. People love to gather and have a drink together, and listen to their favourite bands, and discover some new favourites. There are lots of fun music activities to check out in your area, so get moving and find out which one you and your buds are going to spend your time at.

Adventure Hiking

You don’t have to be a professional hiker to enjoy the great outdoors. Start out on a flat trail and bring a friend for company. Get some exercise under your belt, some fresh air in your lungs, and you’ll start enjoying the weekend more right away. Don’t forget to pack some water and a few snacks. Make a day of it and you’ll be hooked on a new hobby in no time.

Take on a Do-it-Yourself Project

Nothing says the weekend like a DIY project! What have you been meaning to tackle around the house? What are you tired of putting off? Make a plan to get something crossed off your list this weekend. It doesn’t have to be a huge undertaking; you just have to get it started. Make a point to schedule some more time throughout the week, or over the next few weekends to continue to work on any projects that might spill over beyond this weekend. But at least, get it started. You won’t regret spending your weekend making your house more of a home.

Play Tourist in Your Own Locality

Even if you have lived in Singapore your entire life, there are still places to see and things to do that you haven’t done yet! There are probably even streets you haven’t walked down. Get out and start seeing the place you call home. Or if you haven’t been to a favourite spot in a while, make time to revisit that place this weekend. There are parks everywhere, and some parks have interesting events going on almost every week, so even if you’ve been there a hundred times, it’ll be different this weekend. Start with that if you don’t know what else to do!

Whatever you decide to spend this weekend doing, make sure it is making you happy. Sitting in front of the television never made anyone happy. It kills us slowly. Don’t do it. Get out and see the world. Make your time off from your job count. Happy weekending!
