Begin Your Weekends on Monday
If you think that the author of this article is a bit crazy, maybe, you are right. Anyway, there is no mistake in this subtitle, as one of the most important keys to arrange cool weekends is to plan them at the beginning of the week! You can decide it is boring because it is not for you when you know what to anticipate from your life. Who knows… Alternatively, we advise you not to make such quick decisions and try following this advice. While planning, you find out how to organize your studying and resting time properly. You get the opportunity to highlight those things, which you are interested in, and separate them from the other ones, which just distract you and make you extremely lazy. Usually, there is chaos in our heads, so planning helps us put our inner chaos in order and smarten our thoughts up. In addition to this, in the process of planning try to consider the principles of setting your goals (they are described in the other article of this topic block).
Tomorrow Is Today
Continuing our crazy author’s idea, let us plunge into the problem of postponing our wishes and goals. The issue is that when you are really busy during the week, you can decide that you do not have the time to plan at all and that you will decide tomorrow how do spend the weekend. Thereby, you wake up on Saturday and realize that there is no “tomorrow” to plan. There is only “today.” Besides, we all have the equal amount of the time, but there is the difference of how we use it as the blogger Anne – Sophie Reinhardt says in her article about how to start living at this very moment.
