Its Friday peeps, the weekend is upon us, sadly its one of the last weekends before the heralding of the end of summer. Where does the time go? It truly seems just yesterday that we were looking forward to the start and now we are already at the end. In Ottawa French schools start Monday and the English schools have just one more week, end of summer and beginning of longer commutes again
So here’s a life question for you, OK maybe not a life question just a weekend question. How do you spend your weekends? Are you the “its my time off,” plan nothing, lounge around and get rejuvenated type or are you the go-go-go let’s cram as many things in as we can type A personality??
I am both, go figure, I love planning activities and going out and supporting all the events in my fair city. I love planning short mini vacations and heading out for a night or two to the vineyards or spur of the moment trips out of town to little fairs and festivals. BUTTTTT then I get tired and want to do nothing but netflix binge, stay in my PJ’s and eat junk food. Sometimes lounging poolside doing nothing is also in the cards. This weekend I am thinking poolside is the option with a little bit of Doctor Who thrown in.
Weekends are there for a reason, time to take a break from the work, time to take time for you and your family. For me I embrace this concept, the days of stressing the work, checking emails all of the time, answering calls when not at the office have been parked. I believe I am more productive when rested and when not stressing the little issues and that is the philosophy I live by today. So take your personal time, do more than just hug the kids actually play with them. Turn off the phone and the work computer and spend quality time with those you want to be with. Embrace Life, live your life, stay healthy, rested and relaxed.
