Weekends are great for socialising, but they're also great for kicking back and investing quality time on self and loved ones.
Weddings, a night out with friends, a meal at the hottest joint in town...there are dozen and one things weekends are great for.
But while we're all for a spot of socialising, there are also several great reasons why a weekend spent at home could be a great option to try.
Rest and regroup: At the risk of stating the obvious, weekends are the perfect time to kick back and relax after an active week. With the increasing mortality rate resulting from high-blood pressure and stress-related issues, the importance of adequate sleep/rest cannot be overemphasised. It's also important to reflect on the week gone by and make changes where necessary.
Try a new recipe: What better way to spend the weekend than explore a culture though its cuisine? So whip out that cookbook and get busy!
Read: Nothing expands the mind better than reading. You're educated and entertained all at once and with the advent of e-books now, you can have any book of your choice right on your smart phone, tablet or even your laptop. So go on and search for a good book this weekend – it could be the (auto)biography of your favourite socio-political or even entertainment figure, a self-help book or even good ol' fiction. Either way, make sure you read something this weekend.
Spend time with loved ones: With the jet speed of the 21st century, folks hardly spend enough time with each other which. Stay home this weekend and reconnect with your loved ones - play games, cook together and just talk with each other.
Catch up on the campaign trail: With the 2015 elections barely weeks away, politicians are hot on the campaign trail. What better time to catch up on politics and find out what your preferred candidate plans to achieve if voted into office?
