The best way to have an actually fun weekend

Today’s tip: Track your weekend hours to maximize your fun.

Does it ever feel like your weekend just evaporates into thin air? By Monday night, you’re exhausted again (or still), and can’t even remember what you did all weekend. Here’s the thing: the weekend actually includes about 37 waking hours, as Laura Vanderkam points out in Forge. Chances are, you spend a lot of those hours puttering around, scrolling, and/or trying to remember what it was you actually wanted to do.

But as Vanderkam notes, we should be as mindful of our leisure hours as we are with our work hours. So this weekend, start a spreadsheet, and track where your hours go. Do it again for a few more weekends. You’ll end up with a pretty good picture of what you’re actually doing all day, and chances are, some idea of how you can fit it more quality fun, from family adventures to social time to the greatest adult pastime of all: naps.
