5 Practical Things To Do During The Weekend

We’ve all been there: It’s Wednesday but our minds are already imagining all the fun things to do on the weekend. There’s nothing to blame. Consensus is five days of enduring the traffic to travel to and from the office and the stress that comes with work really take a toll on you. It can be exhausting, and one way to get through is to make the most out of your weekends.


Here are some ways to spend those precious 48 hours without breaking the bank:

1.Watch a movie or catch up on your favorite tv series

Those busy days had you missing the most anticipated movies or your favorite movies? Catch up during weekends! It’s best when you can actually go to the cinemas but you can also have your movie night at home. In this way, you can spend time with your family and friends more comfortably. 

All you have to do is to prepare a snack, set up the television, and make sure everyone’s comfortable on the couch - and you’re all set!


2. Revamp your skin care routine

Feeling like you’ve reached a plateau in your skin care regimen and you want to achieve more results? Spend the weekend by researching about the best skin care routine for you! You can also make an inventory of your products and identify which ones you actually use. Store them in a proper place and make sure to get rid of expired products.

You can also take your skin care routine by exploring the use of vitamin E supplements. Research about it and consult your dermatologist if needed. One good supplement is Pharex E, a soft gel capsule where you can get the vitamin E benefits for the skin for an affordable price. This can protect your skin from damage and premature aging

3. Experiment on a new recipe

Ever binge-watched Tasty videos? It’s time to make those delicious food yourself!

Surprise your loved ones with a new dish. Spice things up a little by preparing new food. If you usually cook Filipino food, try going for an Italian night. Learn new pasta recipes and try to make a pizza!


4. Exercise!

That 9-5 job requiring you to sit most of the time won’t help your fitness goals. Use the weekend to actually work on improving your body by exercising! This doesn’t only mean going to the gym, while that’s a good way to do it. You can jog, bike or do sports at little to no cost!

For those who live in or near Quezon City, you can go to the University of the Philippines, Diliman to jog and bike at the famed Acacia tree-lined academic oval.1 Best to visit here on Sundays when motor vehicles are not allowed to pass thru the oval. You can also try going to Emerald Avenue in Ortigas, and Rockwell in Makati. They close the roads for pedestrians on Sundays


5. Learn something new or find a new hobby

Break your routine by doing something you’ve never done before. Having a hobby can help relieve stress while letting you work on something you actually enjoy.2 You can try to paint, make furniture or make recycled bags. You can also try your hand at planting or decorate your home with beautiful indoor plants. In this way, you are actually relaxing and being productive at the same time.


Fun weekends don’t have to be expensive. What’s important is that you take care of yourself by nourishing your body with supplements like Pharex E . Also use the time to rest and recharge for another work week ahead.
