What happy people do on weekends

 

Want to know how to use your weekends in a way that would make you happier?

Many people look forward to the weekend so they can literally do nothing. But doing so may actually make you depressed and frustrated with your life.

So what can you do about it? How can you use your weekends so you can be happier?Happy face

One of the way to do that is to use your weekends well.
Studies have shown that doing unproductive, unplanned activities on the weekend does not make you happy. Watching unplanned movie marathons, mind numbing TV shows, unplanned time on the internet, social media sites, sitting on the couch eating mindlessly  etc. is likely going to leave you feeling unfulfilled by the end of the weekend. Many people THINK that’s what they want to be doing but when it’s all said and done, they feel like all they are doing is saving their time and energy for their work week and not necessarily something they truly care about. If you’re one of those people whose job is their life’s passion, fantastic. But for the majority of people that’s just not the case.

Find what you’re passionate about and resolve to do it. One lesson I learned through some of the most difficult challenges of my life was that happiness does not come from focusing on oneself. Happiness comes from helping others.

Have you ever heard the phrase: “If you feel helpless, help someone”?

If you're feeling helpless, help someone.

If you’re feeling helpless, help someone.

For me, happiness is helping the helpless. That is what 100 FOR 100 Movement is all about. Helping those who need our help the most. And this is what veganism is all about – helping the animals, the people and the planet.

Weekends are a perfect opportunity to focus on your life’s passion. Make a plan and start early in the morning. Tackle your priorities first. There’s nothing better than accomplishing the one or two things that you set out to do first thing in the morning.

So think about how you would like to help and what you’re passionate about. And then make a plan and set out to accomplish the most important one or two things first thing in the morning.

And if you’re like me and want to help animals, the people and the planet you will resolve to take on the 100 FOR 100 challenge if you haven’t already.
