Explore these Exciting Ways to Unwind and Relax this Weekend



We all love weekends but somehow, the weekend always seems to fly by quickly. Even with how fast we think it goes, there is plenty of time for fun, relaxation and most importantly, recharging your batteries for the new week. Great weekends are often the best way to ensure you have a productive week.  You want weekends that leave you refreshed, not exhausted or disappointed, so you can hit Monday, ready to go!


These tips should help with making the most of your weekends:

Don’t Clog Your Weekends With Chores

Unlike the typical idea that weekends are for chores, you do not want to use your entire time to catch up on them.  Consider doing your chores during the week, as you can spread your chores all through the 5 days of the week, leaving your weekends free for more rejuvenating activities.

Hang Out With Friends

After a long busy week, you should make time to catch up with friends to keep your friendship going. Consider a Saturday night dinner or a Sunday afternoon brunch. This will help you relax while also catching up on missed conversations.

Allot Some ‘You’ Time

The week was probably filled with all sorts of activities, which though fulfilling, can also be tiring. Being constantly surrounded by people and activities can take a toll on you and the weekend is a great time to have some ‘You’ time. Try booking a spa session to help you relax and ease out all the tension from dealing with people all week, read a book, listen to some music, or just chill out on your own and take in all your thoughts, this can help boost your creativity and thought process for the coming week.


Catch Up On Some Movies on TV

DStv and GOtv have amazing movies lined up for the weekend and watching TV is a good form of relaxation. Here are some movie ideas for this weekend.  Watch Judy’, which sees Rowan Atkinson reprises his role as the ditzy but oddly effective Agent Johnny English, who gears up to save Britain from a cyber-attacker in this instalment of the ridiculous spy-comedy. This will air on Sunday, November 7 at 6:30 pm on M-Net Movies 1 (DStv channel 105). Or go for a riveting film based on true events, ‘Mine 9’. Two miles into the earth, nine Appalachian miners struggle to survive after a methane explosion leaves them with one hour of oxygen. This will air on Saturday, November 6 at 10:15 pm on M-Net Movies 4 (DStv channel 108 & GOtv channel 3).


Stay Home And Get Sporty

Watch live sporting action with your pals and enjoy a fun and relaxing time at home. Luckily, DStv and GOtv have got one of the best football leagues showing this week into the weekend.
