The weekend is finally here! It’s time to get some much deserved rest after a crazy week. However, just because you’re recharging your batteries doesn’t mean you can’t still get some things done. Here are five things you can do to gear up for a productive, yet relaxing weekend.
We are all so caught up in completing our to-do list that often the people we love the most may end up getting pushed further down. One sure way to let go of “guilt” (which serves no purpose other than to make you feel bad) is to plan an activity that’s important to the special person in your life. It doesn’t have to be over the top – sometimes simple is better. Your loved ones will appreciate that you took time out of your busy schedule to show them you care.
Indulge yourself and pencil it in
September is National Self-Care Awareness Month. Organized women know the importance of fulfilling obligations – not only to the people that are close to them but also to themselves. You’ve spent all week taking care of other tasks. You deserve a break to take care of yourself and to feed your soul.
Dump the small stuff
The weekend is a time to recharge and prepare for the coming week. Go through your list and get rid of anything small. If something is really important, it will resurface (out of sight, out of mind). Tie up any loose ends you may have. If you’ve been putting off going to the store to return that one thing that’s been broken for weeks now, go do it. You’ll feel much more accomplished; it’s one less thing to worry about.
Organized women know the value in determining when to give out and when to reel in. They realize everything doesn’t need an answer and appreciate moments of silence. These small moments allow them to take on bigger things. If you take a step back and simply observe, you’ll find a bigger perspective.
Is it really that important?
If something unusual comes up during the weekend, don’t immediately tend to it. Sit back, judge the importance of it and let it go (if it can wait). This is how organized women remain cool, calm and collected when faced with other difficult situations.
