Keep an activity log
Write down all your weekend activities and then review them on Sunday night. You’ll probably find you spend more time on duties like cleaning, working, and running errands than you realized. Figure out what you can cut down on to make more time for activities that are fun and fulfilling.
Avoid sleeping in
Snoozing until noon cuts into the time you thought you’d spend working out or making plans with loved ones. Plus, it throws off your body’s internal clock, meaning you won’t sleep as well during the week. Try sticking to the same schedule that you do during the week for more (refreshed, energetic) time.
Take a morning stroll
Taking a walk as soon as you wake up—even before coffee and brunch—gets your workout out of the way. You’ll come back feeling energized and empowered to tackle the rest of your weekend activities.
