5 great ideas for your next day off

5 great ideas for your next day off

What to do on a day off? All too often as an adult, our days off of work are spent still working in some capacity. Whether doing DIY, cleaning or looking after children, it’s tough to catch a break. But what if you actually took a day off just for you and spent it doing something fun? After all, surely at least one day of holiday can be spent doing something for yourself? Here are some great ideas for doing just that!Β 

1. Eat with a loved one

Get in touch with a friend or relative that you haven’t seen for a while. Either cook or go somewhere for some delicious food. One of my favourite things on a day off is having more freedom to eat what I want, without being worried about time constraints. If you have a board game cafe near you, playing games together would add an other element of fun to the outing!

2. Drive your dream car

How about having a supercar experience? Driving the car of your dreams would certainly be an exhilarating way to spend your day. Just imagine the adrenaline rush as you speed around the track in a Lamborghini Gallardo, or perhaps an Aston Martin DB9 if that’s more your style. Whatever your car preference and favourite track, there’s sure to be an experience available to suit you.

3. Take a class

Is there something you’ve been wanting to learn to do for a while? Seize the day and take this opportunity to go to a class! From archery to yoga, you should be able to find something in your local area of interest. Many adult education centres run classes during weekdays.

4. Connect with nature

If you’re like me and work in an office, you can often start to feel a bit boxed in. Going for a walk or spending time outdoors can do wonders for your mood and outlook on life. If you’re fortunate enough to live near a picturesque area, go there and enjoy exploring the coastline or hiking in the mountains.

5. Self-care

Give yourself some well-deserved self care, doing things that relax you. Chill out with some snacks at the cinema or with Netflix. Go and spend the day at the spa, or pamper yourself and have a bubble bath at home. Whatever it is you like to do, spend the day treating yourself to the time to do it and enjoy it.

    Love this! Self-care days are the best days! Having a bath with Netflix on your laptop (which is sitting on the toilet lid of course!) I think I’m due one to be honest!

      Oh, I’m definitely due one of those! I got a new bath bomb from Lush a fortnight ago that I still haven’t got round to trying, as well as a face mask. I seriously need to find the time to use them πŸ™‚

      Good choices! You can’t beat being outdoors and indulging in some good food.

    I love the self car option. Nothing better than a relaxing self car day away from the hustle and bustle of work.
