Do you over commit to plans? specifically during the week? i am so guilty of this.
i’m sure many of you feel the same way: you go to look at the week ahead only to find you’ve somehow locked yourself into dinners mon-fri. personally, i’m exhausted at the end of the day … i need this time to recharge, catch up on work and/or just. literally. chill.
i love going out to dinner and being social, but a girls gotta recharge! it’s hard because on one hand, seeing friends in irl and being social is really important - but on the other hand, saying yes all the time might have you showing up no where near your best self. here are some non-dinner alternatives so you can still some face time in with friends without having to give up too much of your precious week nights:
♥️ manis. — you have to do it anyway, and it’s a good chunk of *phone-less* time - why not bring a friend to pass the time!?
♥️ workout + coffee + walk home after. — bringing a friend to workout is a great way to motivate each other and have fun, but it’s not the best place to catch up! grab a coffee and walk in the direction of work/home after.
♥️ group friends together. — one on one time is great, but it’s also really fun to set up a group dinner so you can spend time with a bunch of friends at once, instead of spreading them all out over different nights.
♥️ cook together. — a great alternative to a night out. and, you’ll likely have leftovers, which will save you more time later in the week.
♥️ go to an event. — if you get an invite somewhere and don’t want to go solo, invite that friend who would value it specifically - because you most likely have one! (ie. a networking event, etc).
♥️sunday meal prep/baking. — who can honestly turn down freshly baked banana chocolate chip muffins? next time you’re in the mood to bake, invite a friend over to do it with you.
