Making a Difference to Your Weekend Fun

making a difference to your weekend fun

Do your weekends bore you?  Do you feel like there really isn’t anything to do and you end up stuck in front of your television the entire day wasting your time on movies you probably have already seen?  Well, weekends can be really fun.  And if you’re worried about spending too much money, they don’t necessarily have to be expensive either.  Sometimes, all you need is to get off that couch and do things that will be different from how you always spend your weekends.  Here’s a list of weekend fun things to do that don’t require a lot of cash.

  • weekend funStroll at the park.  Seriously, when was the last time you took a stroll in the park?  It can be weekend fun to just walk around, observe people, swing with the kids, and just smile at people you meet.  Yes, life can be as simple as that, but the happiness you feel is something money can never buy.
  • Pretend to be a tourist and visit your local community’s tourist spots.  I’m sure it’s weekend fun to be out somewhere you’re not familiar with, but visiting the local tourist spots can also be entertaining.  Not only do you get to be updated on what’s new in town, but you also get to see how other people appreciate your community. 
  • Ride a bike.  If you don’t know how to ride a bike, then learn.  There is always this amazing adventure in learning new things and seeing new things – one way of making your weekend fun.
  • Go dancing.  Meet up with friends and have weekend fun.  It’s always nice to catch up with friends and enjoy dancing to the beat that you all love.
  • Go through your old pictures.  Oh I know there’s not a lot of developing films nowadays due to the rise of the digital world.  But I bet you have old photographs that make you reminisce about what you used to be and what you have become.
  • Drink coffee while watching the sunrise.  How often do you drink your coffee while being relaxed by the sight of the sunrise?  I’m sure it’s not very often.  Try it. It’s different and can definitely bring a smile to your face.
  • Ride a roller coaster.  If you’re up for thrilling rides and that kind of adventurous stuff, then go for it.  Be a kid and scream your lungs out if you must.  The feeling you get is just priceless!

Break the habit of shrugging your shoulders when someone asks you how you will be spending your weekends.  There are a lot of things to experience and appreciate.  You just have to be there to see and do it.
