Weekends are like an anxiety-free, magical gateway for indulging in activities you otherwise have no time on the clock.

Here is a list of activities for you to mix up that would make your weekend even more delightful-

Carry out trials on Reading diverse Genres

During the weekday, you might not get time to read and research about the world.

There is no doubt that novels or books provide you the calm you need in this chaotic and sleepless world.

But, there a lot of areas you could test out apart from the conventional reading, such as-

  • Politics is a mind-stimulating arena. Familiarize yourself with its jargons and cruel yet brilliant ways and, you might have something new to talk about at work
  • Fantasy novels are like a gateway to a parallel universe
  • History of any place that excites you, for example, a city or town or a particular period, might fill you up with the knowledge that you would love to share among your peers

There are a plethora of genres to choose from; adopt the hit and trial method till you find your minds sweet spot

Weekend Trips

“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal!” — Paul Cohello

The best thing about weekend trips is their sheer spontaneity. You do not need to stress yourself out with budgeting and planning for a month or two before the actual haul.

All you need is an easy-to-use travel booking site on Friday. Voila! You are at a new place on Saturday!

BWT Experiences strives to make your trips action-packed and unfussy.

Bike Trips

The name speaks for itself!

Hop on a bike or rent one through BWT Experiences and drive wherever the wind takes you. Motorbike tours offer a phenomenal chance to feel and experience nature and not from behind the car windows. One plus point is that you do not need a companion, just a bike and, you are all set to immerse your soul in the divinity of nature.

The best thing about bike trips is the no-fuss-only fun rule!

Revive your Hobbies

We all had something that made us feel happy and did not require any external motivators, i.e., hobbies.

Be it doodling or giving a whirl to make-up hacks or even writing or listening to the songs that once resonated with you, weekends are the time to restore them once again.

Re-discover yourself by discovering what made you feel at peace when you were too young to understand the world and its way.

Put on your Chef hat!

Always wanted to learn the recipe for White sauce pasta or bake the tantalising choco lava cake?

If not on weekends, then when? Chalk down the recipe and get cooking!

Not only cooking soothes the mind but also a fanciful way to treat yourself for all the hard work you’ve done during the week.

Rejoice with your Loved ones

Connect with your loved ones on weekends; plan outings with them or humor them with indoor game sessions or meaningful conversations.

Our loved ones bring us joy and keep us going. Weekends open up a spiffing opportunity to give back to them.

After all, a person is an amalgamation of all the persons in their life!

Detox

In today’s fast-tracked scenario, we all need a ‘break’ from mundane routines.

Detox is an excellent strategy to not only distance yourself from the happenings of the world but also recuperate your mind, body, and soul.

Detox comes in ranges, such as-

  • Mental Detox
  • Physical Detox
  • Digital Detox

From yoga retreats to spiritual healing, you can dabble with all!

Introspection

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” — Aristotle

Weekends offer a chance to self-reflect.

Be it through meditation or simply lying on your bed, introspection does not have a standard format.

Keeping up with your thoughts and acknowledging the changes around could offer a stellar opportunity to get to the bottom of ‘Who am I’. Introspection is merely a way to link your mindless actions with meaningful thoughts.

Through this process, not only would you gain insider access in your mind but, it will also lead to self-awareness and self-love.

Once you start understanding why you do things a certain way, why you react in a specific manner, and what makes you truly happy, the need for clinging to extrinsic motivators would evaporate.

Watch Documentaries

We know the first thought is, ‘Documentaries are stale and extraordinarily mind-numbing’.

The trick is to find a concept you are keen on. Then, a little google search and Bam! You found your niche in documentaries.

From fashion and make-up to crime and history, documentaries are waiting out there for you to soak in. Documentaries are simply documentation of interconnected instances formatted for the keenly minded and their job is to fill you up with knowledge, and one should never stop acquiring learning.

Here are some awesome documentaries to get you started-

  • The Queen of Versailles
  • The Imposter
  • Murder Trial: The Disappearance of Magaret Fleming
  • The Wolfpack
  • Cosmos
  • World I & II Documentaries

Knowledge is a powerful tool and if exercised with caution, you could be the coolest and wittiest person in the room!

Explore

“Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit.” Frank Borman

Explore the city you stay in, the building you reside in, and the world you live in!

Life is too short and complicated to be cooped up in the same place. Travel your heart out, explore your dynamic personality and keep engaging with new people.

You never know who or what would tag an end of your need to search for ways to spend your weekend!
