Top 5 Ways To Make Your Week-End Last Longer

Sadly, there is no possible way, we can extend the number of hours on weekends. I know quite a number of people have tried to negotiate with God on this matter. In the mean time, we have to make do with what we have.

However, there is still a possibility that you could stretch your weekend. Try these out this coming weekend and you might notice a difference!

#1. Make a list of things on Friday (or before!)
Most often, we wait until the week-end to ‘organize’ the week-end!
What would happen if you plan it prier to the week-end? This will leave you with just waking up and executing the ‘list’ as opposed to wondering what to do!

#2. Don’t sleep in
Now, now hold your groans and swears until I finish this paragraph. First off, let me tell you that I love to sleep. Generally, I tend to take the liberty of sleeping-in late on week-ends. (If you also have that genetic imbalance on week-ends, I don’t blame you! ) However, what I did notice was, by the time I wake up almost half the day is over!
Don’t get me wrong. I am not suggesting that you wake up in the wee hours of the morning. I thought of it, then again, I don’t want to be beaten up by your spouse or any other family member!

On a serious note, if you wake up at your regular week-day, work-day time, I am sure it will add a few extra hours to your week-end.

Note: If you don’t have anything better to do over the week-end, by all means sleep-in!

#3. Make the most of week-end mornings
This is very related to #2. Sometime ago, I had a habit of watching movies in the morning. This would take away several hours of my morning. Without knowledge, it was suddenly time for lunch!

#4. Try to free your weekend from monotonous & boring activities
Monotones & boring activities… I think people call them chores!

One day, I happen to mention to one of my cousin’s that I couldn’t wait until the week-end, because I had loads of washing to do. He thought it was very funny. Are you smiling at me as well? My friend went on to ask why I waited until the week-end to do my laundry. He had a point.

So, try to shift SOME monotonous boring activities to week days. That way, you can carry out more fun activities on week-ends!

#5. If fails, there is always the next weekend!

I have developed a method of time travel using a delorian and the flux capacitor. Every Sunday evening I jump in the Delorian, set the date back to Saturday and ramp it up to 80 mph and poof, my weekend starts again. LOL. Good luck in the competition.

In all serious, good tips as I always feel the weekends go way to fast.

Great post! I do manage to get myhousework done during the week. I try to keep the weekend just for myself. Your idea's are all good one's.
With grandkids I never sleep in during the week, so I try to on the weekends...because I stay up late on the computer.
I do think I can plan my weekend better. Thanks for the ideas.

I'm one of those people that can't get back to sleep once I'm awake, and I tend to wake around the same time as I would on a work day. Drives my wife nuts. This is a great list, though. Some good advice. If you'd like to have a look at my entry in Darren's contest, it's at:

This is a very good list. I totaly agree with not sleeping in and do your chores during the week, don't let it all pile up for the weekend.
