The weekends! We have that phrase “TGIF” in pure celebration for the weekend. We spend the most money on Friday and Saturday as a society living it up. We fill our weekends with endless binge watching marathons, binge drinking, or binge errands – do we ever just REST? I so struggle with this, I admit it.

The weekends have all this hype and we have so many expectations. Something that I’ve learned the hard way is that if you place all your happiness on the weekend, you will be very disappointed when Sunday night rolls around. Why is it so difficult to have a happy weekend?

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is to MAXIMIZE your happiness during the week so that everyday is a wonderful day. Sure, you’re going to have bad days – but delaying or postponing all your joy for the weekend is bound to lead to you experience a huge let down once it’s all over.

I agree with this so much! I used to get SO excited about weekends because I was hating my day to day from Monday – Friday so when Friday night came around,I was ready to let it all out but what I found was that acting out like that made me even more sad because I wasn’t pursuing my passions or side projects because I was SO tired from all the plans I made on the weekend.

I went back and started enjoying my weekdays as well. It shouldn’t be all about work… making plans for dinner with a friend, going to the movies, reading a good book, taking a night class… these are things to keep our brain happy.
