We’ve all been there. You walk into work on Monday morning and you get stopped with the “So, what did you do this weekend?” question. You quickly comb through your thoughts and realize that you didn’t do much and it leaves you feeling like you wasted your off days. A lazy weekend is good once in a while, but did you know it’s possible to be productive even on your days out of the office? Don’t worry, we’re not saying that you have to bring your work home.Here are a couple of activities that you can integrate into your weekend that will leave you well-rested and feeling productive. 

1. Disconnect - One of the most beneficial tips for being productive on your weekends is to disconnect. Before you leave the office, make a list of the first things that need to be done when you return from the weekend.
2. Get Some Rest - Productivity and sleep may sound like opposite terms, but they aren’t necessarily. We live in a culture that worships constantly working, but the fact is that we need to sleep in order to be productive. 
3. Prioritize your Passions - During the week, it can be tough to make time for your hobbies and passions. After a long day at work and sitting in traffic, all you want to do is curl up and unwind. However, weekends are the perfect chance to dive into the activities that you enjoy.
4. Destress - It can be a little tough to squeeze in a good workout during the workweek. Did you know exercise is known to boost your mood and energy levels? That is just another reason to make time to hit the gym
5. Plan for the Week Ahead - Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting you spend a long time doing this. Spending as little as 10-15 minutes on planning out your week will give you a good overview of what you have going on. 
If you’re trying to be more health-conscious, weekends are also a great time to pursue healthy eating. Meal prepping on Sunday is a great way to avoid unnecessary spending and ensure that you’re eating the nutrients and vitamins you need. You’ll be ready to conquer the week before it has even begun!

We know it can be tough to find that middle ground between relaxed and productive. Whether you’re catching up on a book or planning for the week ahead, the most important thing is to prioritize your mental health. Try finding activities that not only allow you to be productive, but that also add something positive to your life.
