I sometimes find my weekends completely empty. No plans, no friends to call, and very little errands to run. During this time off I like to take a couple mental health days. There’s nothing wrong with spending a weekend alone and choosing to not pack that weekend with tons of plans. Here’s a couple of things you can do alone when you find yourself with solitary free time:
1. Take a bath
Set aside a good amount of time to just soak and forget about all your other problems.
2. Go to the library
Sign up for a library card and get started on the reading list you pinned on Pinterest two years ago.
3. Binge watch a series
Escape your own reality with a non stop marathon of Netflix.
4. Go to the gym
Push yourself harder than you usually do and spend some time sweating it out in the sauna. For myself i do crossfit. And not at the gym.
5. Learn a new skill
I personally learned how to work on loom bands, I’ve made like 6 bands because that’s all I know how to do – but it’s really easy!
6. Go on a hike
Somewhere safe you can go alone, obviously. The scenery is guaranteed to make your day.
7. Run errands
Get done allllll of the things you’ve been putting off.
I guarantee there is one spot in your house or one drawer in your room that needs reorganizing.
9. Get your nails done
Or do what you do to pamper yourself.
Spend a little money and splurge. You’re not spending $16 on two cranberry vodkas at the bar with your friends so go buy yourself a new top or necklace.
