Yay! Spring is near. I’m so excited for the warm weather that I’ve already started picking out outfits. I love having self-care routines to get me started for the day, week, and weekend. Last year, I wrote about my morning routine for winter. Today, I am going to write about my Saturday routine. I feel you should spend one day having fun and trying new things. Saturday is my favorite weekend day.
The first thing I do every morning is open my window, fix a cup of coffee and sit in my favorite chair. From there, I reflect on my goals for the future.
I write down my negative thoughts and behaviors and then I pray for forgiveness and growth.
I read over my goals for the day, week, month, year, and next five to ten years.
I read over what I have accomplished and what I’ve done in my life over the last thirty years.
I workout…….(I always wear my belly burner ;-))
I stretch my body.
I run 3-6 miles.
I focus on working out my entire body, so I do the following exercises:
Push ups (3 sets of 25)
Crunches (3 sets of 25)
Squats (3 sets of 25)
Side Plank Hip Lifts (3 sets of 25)
Play 1-4 games of full court basketball.
I stretch again.
I focus on a hobby……..
My hobbies consists of reading, learning a language, cooking, drawing, and of course, fitness.
After my shower, I focus on one of those hobbies for 1-2 hours.
I always plan an event to do on Saturday, whether it’s an event I can do at home or outside of the house. Here is a list of things I like to do on a Saturday:
Tryout a new coffee shop in the area (I love coffee).
Attend an event that is about a culture or topic that I am not familiar with.
Go to brunch with friends.
