If you work five days a week, then I’m sure that you consider weekends to be sacred. You always try to get the most out of it before another work week rolls in. Two days may seem inadequate to have any fun but you would be surprised with the things that you can do. There are so many ways to enjoy the weekend. Here are just 12 of the hundreds of things you can do to enjoy the weekend.

You may want to start partying but your body may be craving rest and rejuvenation. After all the stress of the week, wouldn’t it be nice to just get some sleep?

Get a massage to help your mind and body relax. You can also plan a home spa weekend. Remove all distractions and enjoy a leisurely bubble bath and tea. Read a good book and just enjoy your free time.

3 Make Love

Your busy life may prevent you from interacting with your boyfriend or spouse during the week. The weekend would be the perfect time to stay in bed, make love, and catch up with your loved one.

4 Have a Cheat Day

The weekend would be a great time to forget about food restrictions. Indulge in your favorite food and drinks on the weekend. Of course, this is not an excuse to binge.

5 Try a New Restaurant

You know that eating out can cost so much money. So instead of eating out every day of the week, why not try a new restaurant on the weekend (or every other weekend)?

6 Host a Potluck

Go out with some friends and go drinking at a bar. Try new cocktails, mixed drinks, and beers. Just don’t go overboard on the alcohol and remember that mixing drinks can sometimes have a terrible aftermath. Of course, have a designated driver or take public transportation when it's time to go home.

11 Watch a Live Band

The weekend is the perfect time to go on a short road trip with family or friends. Go somewhere you’ve always wanted to see.

These are the most common things you can do to have fun on the weekend. Try looking around your area to see your other options. I’m sure that your place is not as boring as you think it might be. Don’t limit yourself to the usual places and things to do. Your company already owns 5 days of your week. Make the most out of these two days.
