Since many of us have been working from home since the beginning of lockdown, it can get difficult to switch our minds off of work mode. Here are 4 ways to recharge without going out
Few of us have resumed work at our office spaces, but for many whose homes have extended to workplaces it can be hard to unwind as your home office is a few steps away. But weekends are there for a reason, they give you precious time to catch up with your loved ones, play with your children and importantly to sleep as much as you can. It’s possible to enjoy a much-needed break this weekend, here are four ways to do that:
- Try out your favourite or a new recipe: Next to taking a long, bubble bath, the kitchen is probably a favourite room to be for some people. It is for me too. I take pleasure in cooking and trying out different and new recipes. Not only does the delicious aroma of scones or chicken in the oven make me happy, but I also feel great knowing my family will enjoy what I have prepared. I also enjoy trying out recipes from Chef Nono.
- Binge-watch your favourite shows: Who has time during the week to watch every programme they enjoy? I know I don’t, work and studying take up too much of my time. So I dedicate my weekends catching up on my favourite shows either on DStv or Netflix. PS: I just finished watching Bridgerton on Netflix, which I was happy to hear is shooting its second season soon.
- Turn off notifications from your phone: I must confess, I am guilty of wasting hours on social media, do a bit of work and even checking my emails over the weekend. I know these are stress-inducers and by the time a new week dawns I am barely rested. Electronic devices can be addictive, if you can switch your data off and stay as far away from your phone as possible.
- Spend quality time with your loved ones: living with and spending time with your loved ones are two different things. People can feel ignored even in your presence. Take this weekend to connect, play with and have fun with your family.
