Thought for the Month: This Friday, finish your work and be done.

Vol. 2, Iss. 2 | October 2020

Have you stopped to think that there are 60 hours on the weekend? That sounds like a lot, so why is it that when Monday morning comes around, we find ourselves asking, “Where did the weekend go?” We look at the two highly anticipated days, and we can’t figure out what we did! We might think we just slept through it!

Maybe, after a long and stressful workweek, we should list things we’d like to do on the much-coveted two days off. We don’t need to go overboard planning (after all, we do that all week), but simple planning might make the weekend more meaningful. Set aside time to walk in the park or drive to the beach for lunch. Spend time with a loved one or call an old friend you haven’t seen. Go fly a kite! Pick up a new hobby. Read a book and unplug the electronics. Enjoy sitting in your garden and watching butterflies fluttering around your plants. Exercise by gardening, sweeping your front porch, raking, etc. – you’ll feel rewarded for your efforts!

Whatever you choose to do on those priceless days off, one thing is sure – if you pace yourself through the workweek, the weekend will genuinely be your reward. So, look forward to the weekend and have some fun!
