5 Things To Do This Weekend

Rest and relaxation is as important as working hard; taking time out to recuperate after a long week is key to recharging both mentally and physically. If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here are five suggestions that will nurture your body, mind, creativity, and relationships.

Meet With Friends

It’s easy to get caught up in the business of our own lives we can find ourselves overlooking the importance of spending time with our closest friends. This weekend ask your friends out to brunch; catch up over a morning coffee or a late lunch for a proper catch-up with them. Make time for the people you care about the most by devoting a little of your spare time this weekend to them.

Be A Tourist In Your Own City

As a resident of a town or city it’s likely you’ve overlooked the tourist spots or even the local art galleries and museums. You might have even actively ignored them to avoid the crowds. Sometimes it’s nice to follow the herd and be a tourist in your own city, it gives you a chance to visit the places you’ve never been to before. This weekend, check what exhibitions are showing at your local museum or gallery, visit the seasonal markets, or simply take a trip to the city centre to look around with new eyes.

Visit A National Trust Location

The National Trust is a conservation organisation that protects places of historic interest and natural beauty by opening them up to the general public. The trust owns 200 historic houses and gardens, cares for miles of coastline, and protects the natural wildlife. Visiting one of the many sites is a wonderful way to spend a day out exploring the countryside, viewing art galleries, and wandering beautifully kept gardens.

Take Street Photography

It’s not always possible to get away but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the environment around you. Unable to catch up with friends or visit a green spot? Grab your camera (or phone) and take some photographs out on the streets. Find the beauty in your everyday surroundings by exploring the streets you’ve never gone down before. Even if you’ve lived in the same place all your life, there’s always something new to discover if you’re open to finding it.

Discover A Green Spot To Relax In

Doing nothing is a privilege we should grant ourselves more often. There’s something special about finding a peaceful green spot to relax in. Perhaps take a picnic and leave your phone at home; give yourself some space to think and breathe without interruption. Mindfulness and meditation can be sought online and through apps but nothing beats discovering a secret green spot to retreat to when the world feels like it’s moving too fast.
