7 Ways to Spend Your Weekends at Home

by Jacinta Koelewyn on Wednesday 22 April 2020

 

Whether you're saving money, taking care of your family or government restrictions demand it, sometimes it really is nice to have a relaxing weekend at home. Discover seven easy ways you can enjoy a weekend at home.

1. Plan a Games Night

Boardgames are a great way to have a laugh and take a break from screen time. Plan a games night with your housemates, play online games via a video call, or get on your smartphone or gaming devices together. There’s your Saturday night, sorted.

2. Enjoy a Café-Quality Brunch

Who says Sunday brunch is a no-go? You can enjoy your smashed avocado in the comfort of your home. Whip up a storm in the kitchen and have a crack at your brunch favourites. If you’re lucky enough to have a balcony or courtyard, set yourself up outside for a bit of fresh air.

3. Get Dressed Up

If you’re getting tired of the sloppy trackies, hoodies or activewear at home, you’d be surprised how good getting dressed up can make you feel. This is also great for the couples out there – dress up and have a candle-lit dinner for a date night at home.

4. Video Call Your Mates

Thankfully, technology makes it much easier to stay connected. Coordinate a group call with your best buddies to either share a meal, glass of wine or even watch a movie together.

5. Try Something New

If you’re feeling up to it, now could be a great opportunity to try something new. It could be as simple (and delicious) as learning to bake, playing an instrument, or drawing. There are plenty of free online tutorials out there that can help you get the foundations of a new skill. The key is finding something that interests you and feels good!

6. Order In

It’s no secret that Melbourne and Sydney are known for our love of eating out. There are plenty of restaurants out there that do takeaway or home delivery very well. Bring that restaurant experience home to you!

7. Do Something You Love

If there was ever a time for self-care, it’s the weekend. Do something you love, whether it’s online workouts, putting on a face mask and having a bath, getting creative or reading a book. Finding a sense of joy in what you’re doing can help transform your weekends into something truly fulfilling.
