What’s on your to do list this weekend? For many of us our lives are so busy that the only downtime we get is our weekend. But downtime doesn’t necessary have to mean sit down time!!!
For a lot of us downtime means watching tv, movies or dining out,most of which are associated with food/eating. This is of course completely ok, but pay attention to exactly how much time you spend sitting down and/or eating on your weekends because often it can get a tad out of hand (I know from personal experience).
For those who may have a sedentary office job (like me!!!) or for those who haven’t quite managed to add intentional exercise to their weekday routine, some active downtime on the weekend is a must!
Here are some examples of what I like to call active downtime;
- Walking into town to meet your friends for coffee
- Social tennis game with family or friends
- Playing with your pet
- Gardening (if you find gardening enjoyable that is)
- Light bike ride
So do something for your health and schedule some active downtime into your weekend!!!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!! 🙂
