  • Write stories- express your imagination by writing stories. You will be impressed by how creative kids could be.

Learn Something New

No matter how busy you might be, always try to find some time for you.

Find a new hobby, or just relax for an hour. You deserve to have your special minutes to refresh your mind and body.

There are some easy but pleasant things to do this weekend:

  • Read a magazine or book- just pick a topic. Travel, Science and Tech, or Beauty. You name it.
  • Take an online course- educate yourself with some of the free online courses.
  • Watch a tutorial- Youtube is a great source for learning new things. Makeup and hairstyles tutorials, or ideas on how to match outfits. A wonderful way to impress your colleagues with a new style.
