When we talk about an upcoming holiday or an off at the office, most of us think about laying on the bed all day long, eating pizza and watching Tv. But, there is an inner desire of doing something worth in those 24hrs of freedom. Doing something which gives you a sense of accomplishment would make the ‘day off’ productive and memorable, wouldn’t it? Here we share a few tips on how you can make your day off productive and live each moment of the day to the fullest.
1. Wake up early
This may seem totally unacceptable but waking up early in the morning is the best thing you can do on your day off. An early morning kick starts to your day gives you ample time to plan the rest of the sunlight hours and also keeps you fresh for long.
2. Take a walk before sunrise
A little cold and dewy morning is a great alarm clock for the body. Going on a walk early morning, that too before the sun rises, will relax your muscles and make them more workable throughout the day.
3. Read a book
Books are gateways to a new world of facts and fantasies. Your weekdays are monotonous and full of workload. Escaping to an unknown world created by books is quite relaxing for the mind and gaining bit knowledge, be it literary or scientific, does no harm.
4. Eat what you like the most
So, it’s your off day and you have quite a lot of time to enjoy your favorite cuisine. Give special attention to your meals and enjoy every bite to the fullest. This is not only pleasurable but also very satisfying and accomplishing.
5. Visit an old friend
In our busy schedules, we are hardly able to take out time for that long lost friend who stays in our city, yet, we never get to meet him/her. During your holiday, try meeting an old friend and relive your memories together. At the end of the day, this rendezvous will become an unforgettable memory for both of you.
6. Clean your closet
You’ve left for office in a hurry, throwing your clothes all over and rolling them up untidily, for a great part of the week. It’s time to have some cleaning done. Organise your closet properly so that your Monday morning doesn’t make you late for work hunting for the other sock of the pair.
7. Get a massage
This is a must-do for all the heavy workaholics out there. Get a spa or a full body massage is done whenever you get that extra time on a day off. This will not only rejuvenate your body but will also open up the complex knots of your mind which have been tightened throughout your working days.
8. Give time to your hobby
One always has that one hobby to which he/she has not given enough time because of the workload and this is why it becomes all the more important to take up that particular hobby again. It is not just about the hobby but the happiness and repose which you’ll receive as an end result.
