Fun things to do this weekend

Now that the holidays are over, it can be easy to get a little bored as everyone heads home and back to work, with the weekends once again taken up by errands like grocery shopping and catching up on housework.

If you’re worried that your weekends will revert to those that seem to be taken up with boring activities each week, here are some fun things you can do to ensure your weekends are enjoyable and you recover from working hard every week:

Play Casino Games Online

Most of us like going to a casino every now and again, but what if you could experience all of that fun from the comfort of your own home? Well now you can, at There aren’t many great online casinos for Australians, and this site shows you the best places to play slots, poker, blackjack, and more, while betting safely and enjoying the chance to make some serious money.

Get Active

After working all week, it can be tempting to just stay inside and watch Netflix all weekend. But did you know that working out actually gives you more energy than you had originally? Along with feel-good hormones and energy, you’ll be burning calories and toning your bod- meaning you’ll soon feel great as well.

We all like to work out differently, with some people loving the gym, while others wouldn’t step foot inside a gym unless they were paid to. But if you’re not sure which type of exercise is right for you (and which type you’ll actually enjoy doing), set yourself a challenge and try something new each week. Maybe you can go for a hike one weekend, and follow it up with some swimming at your local pool the week after. You may find that you love martial arts, can’t wait to learn salsa dancing, or have secretly always wanted to give gymnastics a try.

Make 2017 the year you get fit and healthy, and commit to working out each and every weekend- so it becomes a habit you naturally don’t break.

Be Social

We’ve all heard it: “Staying in is the new going out”, and there’s a reason why online services like Netflix and Hulu continue to grow each and every day. The problem is that people are no longer forcing themselves to go out and talk to each other (something that most people find they actually do enjoy once they make themselves leave the house), and are instead communicating solely with social media and text messages. Unfortunately, while smartphones have been proven to be as addictive as cigarettes and alcohol, the rush of dopamine you get from receiving a new message is no match for actually getting out and seeing your friends, or building relationships with new people.

Commit to meeting up with friends at least once every weekend, so you can hang out, find out what’s new in each other’s lives, and maybe even watch Netflix together.
