Living for the Week

I've spoken with a number of coworkers and clients this week where the intent of  "I'm living for the weekend" is very real.

For some, we're in a rut of work work work, that making time for anything except work is really tough to wrap our minds around. But what would your week feel like if you sprinkled it with weekend-like moments to enjoy?

At the start of 2017, I found myself in living-for-the-weekend mode. So I made it one of my goals to live more. To help keep me looking forward to the week, I:
  • attend two interactive evening classes
  • eat lunch one day during the week with someone other than my laptop
  • plan an exercise routine in the middle of one weekday
  • plan one open weeknight for myself
On this evening, I may cook a lavish meal, meditate, journal, have an extra long workout, take a bath, or call a relative or friend I haven't spoken with in a while. The options on this night are fairly endless.

By incorporating the above into my schedule, I have found my weeks pass by rather quickly and I enjoy the weekends that much more, even when the house chores are involved.

I'd love to hear what do you do to keep your weeks interspersed with weekend-like occurrences - so we can all integrate living during the week just as much as we do during the weekend.
