1 Change of Scenery

A fabulous way to get the most out of your weekend is to head off to somewhere away from home. It´s easy and quite cheap to fly to a short-haul destination for the weekend, or reach somewhere within a few hours´ drive. You´ll find the change refreshing, and have a great weekend exploring or relaxing.

2 Plans with Friends

If you´re prone to sitting around at home, wondering where the weekend has gone, then take the initiative. Make an effort to contact friends and arrange to get together. When you have made plans with other people, it encourages you to get out of the house and do something interesting.

3 Full Diary

Do you really want to enjoy your weekend to the max? Then make sure your diary is absolutely packed full! Cramming your weekend with lots of activities means that by Sunday night you may be exhausted, but you certainly won´t feel that you wasted a single minute!

4 Try Something New

Another way to get the most out of your weekend is to opt for something that´s a novelty to you. Think of something that you´ve never tried – there are bound to be all sorts of activities that you´ll enjoy! Trying something new will be interesting, aventurous, and possibly very memorable!

5 Home Activities

Even if you´re stuck at home because of the weather, you can still have a great weekend. Use the opportunity to catch up with friends in other countries or states via Skype, give your bedroom a glamorous makeover, or indulge yourself and watch your favourite box set.

6 Schedule

Scheduling plans really helps if you´re prone to whiling the weekend away without really doing anything. If you know you´ve got to leave the house at 1:30 to be somewhere for 2:00, you´re much more likely to get up and get out. So make those plans and stick to them – don´t find excuses not to go!

7 What´s on?

If you really want to enjoy your weekend going out, first you need to find out what´s on! So get a listings magazine for your area, or check online. Most places have a host of activities on; also keep an eye out for posters and ask your friends if they know of anything interesting on at the weekend.

8 Get out

After a tough week at work, sometimes the last thing you feel like doing is going out. But the best cure for tiredness can actually be activity! It´s a shame if your life becomes dominated by work, so make sure that your leisure time at weekends is full of fun things.

It can take a bit of effort to get the most out of your weekend, and it´s effort you don´t always feel like making. But it´s worth it! There are so many things that you can do to enjoy your weekend. Free time is precious, and it´s important to enjoy ourselves. What is your favourite way of having a fantastic weekend?
