Join a book club
If you are someone that loves your literature and look forward to discussing your readings with the like-minded then joining a book club will keep you in schedule with your reading and you will look forward to discussing the same with your club. And more importantly you will improve your knowledge of the subject, may be even gain new perspective.
Health clubs like marathon training clubs or cycling clubs are the healthiest possible way to discipline yourself and improve your health. There is no better inspiration to waking up at the crack of dawn and working out, running or cycling than to do it with your favourite bunch. Plus, with most of the long runs and cycling routes scheduled for Sundays, you’ll begin looking forward to the weekend even more.
Movie/ documentary screenings
Movie screenings are a good idea for the simple reason that they are special screenings, usually of a film that might never make it to the big screen. This is especially the case when it comes classic films or foreign language films which are often quite enjoyable to watch. If you’re a movie buff whose love for cinema remains unsatiated by Hollywood and Bollywood, keep in touch with the cultural centres in your city to stay updated about weekend screenings.
Learn a new language / musical instrument
If you have a flair for languages and learning new dialects brings you joy, then chances are that this might become your favourite weekend activity. Learning a new language also opens you up to a new culture altogether which can translate into new travel plans, new friends et al. If music be your thing then learning a new musical instrument might help you vent it all out and revel in the weekend. Plus both of these are big commitments that will creatively consume your time.
Watch a live performance
When your favourite artist or band is performing and you’ve booked your tickets for the weekend there is no reason why it shouldn’t keep you thrilled through the week. Irrespective of it being a play by a playwright you like, a stage performance or a concert; a gig at the end of your weekend is an ideal way to keep yourself going through the week.
