It’s the weekend -Don’t let it slip away!





1. Rest (take a little sleep-in)

2. Make a concrete decision not to let work infringe (no emails, no admin). Hide laptops etc

3. Switch your mobile off or leave it in the car.

4. Sit at a table while you’re eating, eat slowly and taste the food

5. Do a family thing – a cook-in meal, a quiz or board game, a movie with lights out and popcorn

6. Decide to have one night without television. Get a real good bottle of wine and switch some music on. Chat.

7. Go for a long walk to where nature waits to refresh you – a seaside stroll or a forest park. Watch, listen, smell, touch and give praise for being here

8. Ring an old friend and arrange to meet them

9. Call on someone who is sick, bereaved or lonely. Bring the kids so that they know that everyone is not happy right now. It will foster empathy within them. Count your blessings.

10. Have a good old laugh. Keep company with good humoured people. The laugher is contagious!
