What to do if youre not working?
There are a variety of things one can do when not working. One option is to take a break and relax. This could involve taking a nap, reading a book, or watching television. Another option is to be productive and use the time to complete tasks that have been put off. This might include cleaning the house, running errands, or working on a project.
1. Catch up on sleep
What would you do if, by 8am on Monday morning, you had already used up your entire weekend?
For many, the answer to this question would be to do nothing. But far from doing nothing, there are actually various things you can do to enjoy your weekend:
2. Watch your favorite TV series:
If you’ve been working all weekend, you deserve a break. If you work in an office, you may just want to go home and start watching your favorite TV series. But if you’re a stay at home dad/mom, or you’re working from home, then you may want to consider what you would do if you weren’t working.
3. Organize your work area
How should a workspace be organized?
One of the most efficient ways to organize a workspace is to divide it into sections. This will help you keep all of your most important items within reach, which means you can spend less time looking for what you need.
In an ideal situation, your workstation should be set up so that you can move straight across it. This means your desk should be at the back of your office, not across the front of it. If you must move diagonally to get around, your workspace is too cluttered and disorganized.
There should be ample room between equipment and your workstation. If your desk is too close to your monitors, you won’t be able to look away from them when you need to, which means you run the risk of having an accident.
Your monitor should be on the highest part of your desk, and you should keep cables neatly out of sight.

You might not be able to work, but you can still get in shape. You should make sure that you are at least walking as much as possible. Consider taking the stairs instead of the elevator. If you are able to walk alone, try walking in the park.
When you walk, you burn calories. Try to burn at least 5,000 calories every week. You can burn more than that if you can exercise more, but 5,000 is enough to get your in shape.
Use an elliptical trainer. Many gyms offer elliptical machines that work your arms, legs, and back. Using an elliptical machine can burn up to 600 calories an hour.
Break out the resistance bands. Resistance bands are a great alternative to exercise. They are inexpensive and portable, and you can exercise with them anywhere.
5. Catch up on personal tasks
Here are seven things to do on your day off!
1. Get some rest. Don’t feel guilty about sleeping either! Get some quality shut-eye to reinvigorate yourself for day two.
2. Exercise. While it might feel like you’re breaking your back, exercise can actually make you feel energized!
3. Do some laundry. Maybe you didn’t get to laundry the other day. Do some now!
4. Clean out your closet. Closet cleaning is a great way to find that one piece of clothing that you totally forgot about, or to reorganize your closet so you can navigate it faster.
5. Clean your house. Now that you’ve spent your weekend working, your house might feel a bit dirty. Spend your daytime off cleaning your home!
7. Spend time with friends and family
Spend time with friends and family, some of them may not see you for a few days. Try to go to a movie or dinner, or just hang out and do something fun. Its important to keep in touch with friends and family.
8. Take care of yourself
1. When you’re looking for things to do, look up whats going on in your local area. Different towns and cities have different events going on all the time.
2. You can volunteer your time. Most people love to volunteer their time to good causes and charities, whether its helping out at a school or helping out at a food bank.
3. Get a hobby. Having a hobby is a great way to relax. I would recommend reading or writing.
4. Get social. Go out with friends. Meet new people.
5. Work out. Working out is for everyone, whether its a fitness class, jog, or yoga.
