One of the problems I always come across is how do I make my weekends more interesting? As a mother I always feel like I am putting things on hold, so I can meet the needs of my family. In-fact there are many times I don[t even consider possibilities because they will not fit in with others. So my goal is to find more ways to do the things I enjoy on the weekends that still work in with my family needs but also meet my needs.
So today I dropped Mighty Mouse of to his creative cooking activity. Then on the way home I stopped at the gym cafe had coffee and did some journaling and then went to a relaxing Yoga class. I am still there for my family however it is nice to make the most of the opportunities I have and indulge in some self time. Mighty Mouse’s creative cooking class obviously went extremely well he ate everything, and told me it was yummy. I think it is important to take time out for me. However a day or an evening is not always possible so it is important for me to make the most of my opportunities, be creative and plan a little. I have been working on planning my weekends a little more this past year, so as not to waste them. I work out the things I need to do, the things I want to do, the things my family wants to do, activities already scheduled mostly for kids. I think this makes a difference. I just see the potential for far more productive and interesting weekends.
My plans for the weekend are as follows:
- Guided meditations in the mornings( First thing in the morning while I am still in bed and already feeling calm and rested.)
- Movies ( Watched Hansel and Gretel, too scary for Mighty Mouse he went to bed instead.) I cuddled the dog and brushed her.
- Family outing( planning a visit to the museum and movies.)
- Dinner time together, always lovely to enjoy meal time as a family.
- Always time for a bit of reading.
