Make the long weekend special with these activities

By: - February 24, 2021

LONG weekends are the best.

It is a time to relax, take a pause from work, and breathe some air as we savor the holidays. 

But what should you be doing over the long weekend to ensure you come back on Monday recharged and ready to take on the grinds of the upcoming week? 

While there are a ton of things you can do during these extra days, let’s make them special with these activities:

Organize your calendar

For some, organizing your calendar might be tedious especially when your weeks are filled with meetings, deadlines, and other work commitments.

However, it is sometimes helpful and necessary to spend time simply organizing your life.

Throughout a long weekend, take time to look at your calendar and schedule time with friends, or ensure that you’re making enough time for yourself. 

Adopt a “No Tech Time”

Throughout the weekday, we constantly check on our phones, computers, or even our smart watches to keep track of work.

In fact a 2019 article by said that Filipinos spend at least 10 hours a day on their gadgets and over 2 hours on social media.

If you’re someone who constantly checks on their phone for emails or chats, it is going to be very difficult for you to relax.

During weekends, exercise a “No Tech Time” and enjoy the company of friends (socially distant of course) or do fun activities like yoga or reading that book you once left in your drawer.

Quality Time with Yourself

We all know that spending quality time is good for us, but just how good?

A study made by the University of East Anglia suggests that spending quality time with yourself lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and increases sleep duration.

Since the majority of us work at our home space due to the pandemic, it is important to take the time on getting outside during a long weekend— maybe going outdoors or checking in at a hotel for a well-deserved stay-cation.

If you’re opting for a staycation, may we suggest packing your bags and heading over to Bayfront Hotel?

The sale period is from February 25-28, 2021 while the stay period is from February 25, 2021, to June 30, 2022.
