What not to do on weekends

Are you making any of these health-destroying, wellness-damaging mistakes on your

days off?Did you know that how you spend the 48-hour weekend could make or break

the rest of your week? Pursue it right and you will recover from the week gone by, and be

fresh and bouncy for the week ahead. Make the following mistakes and you’ll probably

have a worse one than anticipated.Binge eatingThe weekend calls for movie dates, family

dinners and social get-togethers. All this partying naturally leads to indulgence in fast

food, greasy meals and drinks. Naturally, you’re damaging your health and figure.What to

do: Research says that all you need to feel satiated is a touch of sugar or salt. So, one

trick for cutting on calories is splitting dessert with your friends.OversleepingYou’ve

slogged it out during the workweek and partied late on Friday night, so you deserve to

sleep in late on the weekend. Wrong. Sleep experts call this phenomenon ‘social jetlag’

and it can do more harm than repair.What to do: Organise your schedules in such a way

that you sleep and wake up on weekends within an hour of your work day timings.Doing

too many choresIt’s natural to get home so tired that you leave the dishes in the sink and

the clothes in the laundry basket for a major weekend overhaul. Add to this, bank

documentation, paper work and changing the sheets, and you’re swamped!What to do:

Divide your chores through the week instead of leaving them for the weekend. Have a

weekly time table for doing the laundry, dishes, cleaning, sweeping and

dusting.Restricting your boundariesHave your weekends become so repetitive that you

end up doing the same thing over and over again? The absence of new activities ensures

you are stuck in a rut.What to do: Explore the outskirts of the city. Go for a drive. Don’t

have a car? Take off on a hike, it will give you a chance to be surrounded by nature. If

you’d rather be a city slicker, then try out a new restaurant in the vicinity.- TNN
