14 Ways To Make the Weekend Work For You

If you have been wondering whether or not you are on the path to success you are not alone. Are your goals being achieved, is your work ethic strong? Jacquelyn Smith, a writer for Forbes, has the answer from successful leaders in their fields.  If you want to extend your 9 to 5 grind from Monday –  Friday to the weekend, take some tips from successful pros.

Weekends are generally time for you to take a step back from your work environment and recharge for a new work week. Doing this gives you a chance to de-stress and rest. At times it could be hard to disconnect and maybe even impossible, but it may be necessary for career growth. Here are the top 7 ways you can work on success for the weekend.

  • Make time for family and friends. If you are neglecting your family during the week this is a good time to catch up and dedicate time especially for them.
  • Exercise. This is a proven way to relieve stress and it is good for health and balance.
  • Pursue a passion. This could eventually turn into another source of revenue.
  • Volunteer. Giving back helps and could be an outlet to express aspects of yourself that you cannot at work.
  • Avoid chores. Why leave work to do more work? Take a breather and kick back.
  • Socialize. Whether it is with friends or family unwinding helps to relieve stress.
  • Network. Any opportunity should be used to make new connections.
