Weekends are a time to relax and enjoy yourself after a long work week.

positive aspects of doing activities

Many people enjoy the weekends for different activities, such as sleeping in, taking a break from work, spending time with friends and family, etc.

weekday obligations

Some people also enjoy being able to switch off while they’re still at work and schedule social activities outside of work hours that don’t conflict with their weekday obligations. Additionally, others like the long weekends and appreciate not having to go back to work right away (especially if they are on vacation or enjoying a holiday weekend).

Positive aspects of weekend activities


The money you save from not having to work are great. Furthermore, if you have a partner at home, they help pay the bills. Even something as small as being able to help with household chores or cooking is extremely valuable. If you have no one to do those things, it's more time that you can spend doing other things.


Many people enjoy the weekends because of the increased time they have with their family and friends. Not having to worry about work or school allows you and the people you care about more time to spend together. Some people especially enjoy spending time with their families.


If you're a person that loves walking, running, or working out, you will love the weekends because there is more time for exercise. You won't have to schedule your workouts around your job or if you have too many assignments to do in a short amount of time.

Life Changes

Some people know that their lives are about to change and they don’t want to be busy during those new changes. I know how this feels because I didn’t want to be busy in my senior year of high school. I wanted to make a big change, but I was also scared of making that change.

Stress Relief

Speaking of time, there are some things that you just have to get done during the week. Sometimes weekends are the only time you can do those things so that relieves stress. I know how it is to be stressed out and having days when you’re just too busy.

the one thing that kept me sane during the time when everything changed was knowing that,

I had more time on weekends to change my mind if needed.
