The weekend is here, it’s time to relax, take a break or do all the things you couldn’t do during the working days.

Visit the Gym, make your hair and nails done, go to a restaurant with friends or escape the city and take a little vacation – it’s up to you. Just free your mind from the work activities and take care of you and the people you love.

Here is a list of 5 simple things to do this weekend.

This will ensure that on Monday morning you’ll have a huge smile on your face.

Go to a party

What is stopping you from going to a party on Friday or on Saturday night? It’s an opportunity for you to meet some friends you haven’t seen in a while, have a drink or two and dance. There is always one “Owambe party” or the other – call your friends up, get your aso-ebi ready and hit the road. It’s a great way to relax and say “goodbye” to the stressful week. After a couple of hours spent eating, gisting, and dancing you’ll definitely go to bed in a great mood. If you are not keen on dancing or partying, you can just meet a friend for a drink or two and have a chat.


Watch a nice movie

If you’re not a party person, you can stay home on Friday night and have a delicious dinner and a glass of wine or juice with person or people you love. If you are a movie maniac you can make a Movie night with friends and watch a couple of films. Get a list of Classics or go the Cinema to see the latest ones.



Escape from the city

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a little escape. If you can afford it, go for a 2-days vacation somewhere. It doesn’t have to be somewhere far away; you can go on a road trip to the nearby city or town. A weekend vacation will make you feel wonderful. You will be excited the whole week before the trip and when you come back to the reality, you’ll be relaxed and “charged”.


Cook something

When you go to work from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. the last thing on your mind when you come back home is cooking, right? You are tired; you make a quick indomie noodles or buy something cheap and ready to eat. We are what we eat, so spend a few hours on Saturday or Sunday making a delicious meal. For some people cooking is a great anti-stress therapy. But, if you’re not one of them and cooking brings you extra stress, just leave it. Go to your favourite restaurant or find a new one and enjoy a meal, cooked by someone else.


Practice sport

If you work in front of the computer all day long from Monday to Friday, the weekend is the time to move your body. Find a sport that you like and start practising it every weekend. It could be football with some friends or neighbours, basket ball or even swimming. P.S – Cleaning the house doesn’t count, ladies. Hire someone to do it for you and go to the gym.


Have a lovely weekend everyone!
