It is almost weekend… I know this is usually the time to relax, unwind, and be a coach-potato but I recommend you consider the following for a change.
- Spend at least 30 minutes or one hour to have real conversation with your child/children (or parents if you are the child). Let them know that you are there for them. Everyone needs to be noticed, whether we admit it or not, so spending some alone-time doing mom-daughter or dad-son thing would affirm that they do exist in your world =)
- Pay a surprise visit to a family member or friend whom you haven’t seen for a while (or give them a surprise-call). Time to reconnect!
- Go out and have real fun together with your friends- talk and pay attention. Instead of asking “How are you?”, you ask “How are you really doing?”. Show that you are interested in them.
- Allot time for health-care. Take a early jog when you wake-up; meditate or spend some quiet time alone thinking about the good things that had happen during the week and the good things that you want to happen; listen and dance to your favorite music or read a book.

I really hope that you will enjoy sharing your time with the people that you love and care for this weekend! Stay happy everyone! =)
