Better days are coming – they are called Saturday and Sunday… But what is it that makes us all love weekend so much? – Relaxation, family, fun: weekends are meant for comfort and doing things we love. But what if we could carry our version of the weekend into a work week? – Let´s try having a never-ending weekend…

While for many of us a Friday evening means a new chapter, not everybody works 9-5 with weekends off to unwind. And after all, who said weekends have to start on Friday? Personally, I love bringing some of my favorite weekend activities into my work week. It´s actually about those small things that end up making a big difference… So what gives me weekend vibes?!

Have you ever heard that calories don’t count on weekends? “Guilty pleasures” – Yes, please. I love making pancakes and waffles every once in a while, or when I don´t feel like cooking – having a coffee by the seaside. We´re often in a rush and don´t take our time to have a good breakfast. Let´s start our day right! Nothing brings me a weekend feel more than a delicious breakfast.

In fact, spending 20 min on those self-care moments is a must, and it´s a time we all have. And let´s be honest we deserve it: it is no one´s job to love you but yours.

Have you ever heard that swimming increases relaxation chemicals and it´s highly conducive to a meditation?

Watching a sunrise, jogging at the beach, riding a bike, hiking or having a coffee in the nearest park … a brief contact with nature could literally change it all. As I live on the Mediterranean coast of Spain – finding places “for walks with nature” is easy. Nevertheless, I still remember heading to work in Hong Kong around 7 a.m and seeing locals doing Tai Chi in one of the nearest parks. Find some beautiful place and get lost

You can always cook/order your favorite food and share it with your loved ones. Spoiling yourself every once in a while never hurts, especially during your work days. A spontaneous night out with your girlfriends or a romantic dinner for two?! – Life is short.

Don´t always have a company?! – Well, have you ever had a romance with pizza?!

As a travel addict, I always try to make the most of my weekends – day trips, hikes, museums, concerts… everything I haven’t seen before works. It´s not always about undertaking a big journey to a new country. A trip to the nature park in your neighborhood or a new exhibition at the nearest art gallery –  this could give you some Wanderlust for the whole week. You don´t need to wait for a Saturday off to visit new places and live experiences! Take another route to work or stop by a new museum or local cafe on your way home: make seeing new places your daily habit, rather than a random weekend activity!
