5 Tips To Help You Make the Most of Every Weekend


This post is sponsored by Skinny Cowunnamed-2

The 4th of July holiday came and went so fast, prescription it’s got us frantically searching our calendar for the next long weekend. Even though tacking an extra day onto the weekend feels like a golden ticket, there there’s no reason every weekend this summer can’t feel like a holiday. Take a look at these 5 tips for having an impossibly good weekend, every single week! After all, it’s summer and you’ve earned it!


1. Handle unpleasant chores during the week

There’s nothing like 5 loads of laundry to take up your entire Saturday and make your weekend go by faster than it has to. Instead of saving things like cleaning, laundry and other miscellaneous household chores for the weekend, knock them out one by one throughout the week. Create a rewards system for yourself so you’re motivated to get things done after work—one load of laundry, earns you a bite of Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates! Seems fair, right?

2. Rise early

Sleeping in can be one of the best things about the weekends, but don’t waste all your precious free time snoozing! Try to wake up around the same time you do during the week, so you can maximize your days. The early bird gets the worm…even on the weekends!

As an added bonus, waking up at the same time every day will help to make that Monday morning rise less dramatic. Wake with enthusiasm with an ice cold Skinny Cow Mocha Latte Iced Creamy Coffee to start your day on a sweet note!

3. Map out your work schedule in advance

9:00PM on Sunday night can be downright depressing. Take the pressure off your Sunday evenings by keeping a running monthly schedule that you can tweak along the way. This way, your descent back to reality after a weekend of floating on cloud 9 won’t come so abruptly on Sunday night. Mapping out your time well in advance is also a great way to keep your many projects organized, too!

4. Make plans

Winging it can work out just fine, but making plans for the weekend allows you to get excited about something specific. You’ll look forward to your plans all week long and whenever you’re having a rough moment, you can look to your plans as the light at the end of the tunnel. In the meantime, there’s always Skinny Cow Chocolatey Dipped Ice Cream Bars to instantly transport you to your happy place!

5. Stay close to home

Getting out of town for the weekend can be great, but travel time can be brutal. Once you factor in the time it takes to get to your destination and back home again, that often accounts for half a day or more! Instead, opt for a “stay-cation” in your town. Head to a remote part of your city you don’t frequent much and explore! You’ll feel like you went on an adventure, even though you’re just miles away from home.
