I’m super burned out and have decided to take tmw off so I can have a long weekend. My team is supportive and has told me to completely unplug. This is a super last minute decision, so I don’t have any plans. Any recs for what I should do? Unfortunately it’s going to be ~100 degrees this weekend, so outdoor activities aren’t a great option.

Massage? Pedicure? Binge watch something mindless. Read a book if you have a stack of "for fun" reading like I do. Sleep in. Have a nice dinner or brunch.

Massage, good workout, lunch with a friend, sleep in, errands/get your life in order/handle everything you’ve been neglecting

Good for you!!👏🏻 what about a massage? Honestly even sleeping in, having coffee/tea in bed, reading or watching a show and just moving about your day leisurely sounds amazing. I’d just want 2 hours to walk around a target at this point during the middle of the day 🤣 no pressure on any crazy fun plans, just enjoy the free time!

Try dosing yourself with happy chemicals - touch releases oxytocin (massage/ facial/ pedicure), exercise releases endorphins (workout class), vitamin d (walk to a nearby coffee shop).

Other than that...going to a movie in the middle of the day might be a nice break. Something that makes you feel like you're playing hookie.

Massage and reading is usually how I spend my weekends when I’m feeling burnt out or needing self care. And DEF sleeping in

Get on a cancellation list for a massage if everywhere is booked (it’s hard to get last minute massages in my area). Cancellations pop up all the time. Go to your favorite restaurant or order takeout! If you’re comfortable going to the movies doing a daytime movie tomorrow would be fun.

Sleep in then go to a workout class. Also deep clean a bathroom or something. Relaxing and will make you feel good in weeks to come.

Reach out to friends you’ve been missing and throw out an invite for a chill wine/movie/game night and enjoy their company 🙏🏻 call friends/family you want to catch up with, maybe get supplies for a craft/art if you enjoy that (get a few canvasses and paint while listening to music)
