I don’t have class on Friday this semester, so it’s basically like I get 2 Saturdays back-to-back. I try to do a lot of my work on Friday when I’m still in a “school week” mindset, and that mindset in turn provides me with a weekend day that I can pretty much spend doing whatever I want.
I tend to keep my Saturdays pretty casual. I sleep in until 9 (yes, I consider that sleeping in) and then spend my morning catching up on social media, watching the newest “Say Yes to the Dress” episode while eating my breakfast, and getting in an at-home workout. Being active early in the day is imperative for my Saturdays because it keeps me from feeling like I didn’t accomplish anything during the rest of my day.
While my mornings are pretty uniform, my afternoons are super varied. This is my day to spend entirely doing what I want, so it changes week-to-week. Sometimes, I make the trek to the Target shopping center and do some clothes shopping. Other days, I stay at home and binge watch some Netflix (probably Gossip Girl, if we’re being honest.) And if I’m feeling social, sometimes I’ll make the afternoon an adventure and go out with friends.
But no matter what I’m doing, I always make an effort to get dressed in an outfit I like that makes me feel good. Something I’ve learned is that when I stay in pajamas all day, I feel worse about myself than when I intentionally take time to pick out what I’m going to wear that day.
I appreciate my extra “me-day” so much. It really allows me to unwind and mentally prepare for the week ahead. What day do you dedicate to your “me time”?
