We can use the weekend as a time to rest and let ourselves be a little lazy, or we can take it as an opportunity to be even more active and enthusiastic than usual.
It’s easy to give in to the temptation to rest when the weekend comes around, but it might be more worth our time and energy to increase our activity.
Some people want to rest on the weekend because it gives them a break from the oppressive or mundane realities they constantly face during the week, and they enjoy having the freedom to do whatever they want. There’s nothing wrong with this greater freedom, and in fact, it’s something we all deserve to enjoy – not just on the weekend, but all the time.
With greater freedom can come greater responsibility, however, and to get the most out of life (and, specifically, our weekends), we might want to continue to be active, even when resting sounds like a better option.
We’re learning about the benefits of staying active and keeping as positive of an attitude as we can no matter what we face, and staying active during the weekend might increase our vitality throughout the week.
If we break out of our shell and go out of our way to be active on the weekend, it might give us more incentive to reclaim our freedom and stay active throughout the week. Like all things, we have the choice as to how we want to act, and no greater force can make us choose a specific path.
Everything’s up to us, but certain choices will help us feel better in the long run. I think staying active is definitely one of those choices, and we can embrace it if we feel motivated enough. If we do, we might make life more fulfilling than it was when we were comfortable being lazy.
What will you do this weekend?
