Do you feel stuck in a routine?
I know I often feel like I’m doing the same thing every day, every week, every month. The week is filled with chores, deadlines, work and things-to-do. Then the weekend arrives and instead of cherishing it and enjoying it half of it is spent in front of a screen or wondering what to do.
Well, wonder no more – I’ve put together a list of thirty ideas to inspire you to try something new this weekend. They’re all low cost and tech-free too (well, mostly), so a perfect opportunity to refresh your mind and enjoy the world around you that little bit more.
Ideas for a fulfilling weekend
1. Take your bike out for a ride around the local area
2. Find a new recipe to try for dinner
3. Visit your local forest or country park for a walk
