Make TIME for the important things in your life!

The past few blogs have focused on employment and keeping staff engaged. This article is all about you and maximizing your life. Enjoying your down TIME. Here are some ways to enjoy this weekend!

Go on a picnic

Pack a lunch, afternoon tea or early dinner, don’t forget the picnic rug. Enjoy time by yourself with a book or with family and friends.

Give yourself some pampering

It is getting close to sandal season so give your feet some attention whether by a professional or do it yourself.

Find some sun

Set up some space in your backyard for relaxation, hook up a hammock [great Christmas present idea], a daybed or a chair and pillow. Enjoy a few minutes and the time for yourself.

Host a potluck brunch

Invite friends over and ask everyone to bring a dish. Suggestions include – a seasonal fruit platter; hard-boiled eggs; blueberry pancakes; croissants with ham and cheese or salmon, dill and cream cheese; freshly squeezed orange juice

Visit a botanic or open garden

Admire the hard work to a truly inspirational garden, enjoy the fresh air, colours and textures.

Get gardening

Spend time dedicated to your own space. Tackle one area at a time rather than seeing a lot of work to fix at once.

Go hiking

I know and agree, we all have this on our “must do” list but really don’t make the time to do it. Explore a national park go to for more information

Get out of town

Take a day trip somewhere, we are so lucky that just an hour from our door are many lovely places where we could enjoy some time exploring.

Call a friend

Make contact with an old friend, one you have been meaning to call for such a long time. It will make you really feel like you have achieved something over the weekend.
