With a Friday afternoon sigh of relief that the work week is almost over, it’s time to put away your computer, switch off your notifications and relax into the tranquility of the weekend. Even if your agenda is crazy, it’s important to utilise the time that we get away from our desks to focus on activities that will allow us to enjoy some downtime to unwind, reflect and re energize for the upcoming week.
The (even though short) amount of time that we get over the weekend is vital to be used for leisurely activities to replenish our attention and motivation, revive your mind and body after all the thinking and doing it does through the work week.
Luckily, New York is a city where there’s always something new and exciting to experience and see! And with the change of season there’s even more new and and accessible ways to spend your free time this Fall.
For this reason, and to motivate you to get out there and relax into the weekend, here are some worthy events and activities you might want to check out. I know I will!
Sometimes the hustle and bustle of the city can get to be too much, try slowing the pace down and take a weekend trip upstate by taking a scenic drive up along the Hudson Valley - breathe in the fresh crisp air and let the beauty and tranquility of fall make this activity all the much more mind clearing and reinvigorating.
Ok, so this might be a winter activity but the rink is up! Take some time out of your day or night and skate across the rink and let any of your weeks thoughts slip away.
You can’t ignore the fact that it’s almost Spa Week in New York! Even just saying it makes me feel instantly relaxed! If you are looking to really unwind, take advantage of this event by zoning out while getting a relaxing facial or deep massage and letting your body unwind to refresh, refocus and reset.
If you’re a coffee lover, then this is your lucky weekend because the New York Coffee Festival is back! Take your time wandering through the vibrant coffee scene, smell the coffee scented air and taste test your way through different coffee brews, enjoy with friends as a way to unwind and relax.
Halloween is near and the Great Jack O Lantern Blaze is on! Make sure to make a stop, take in the bright lights of the incredibly carved pumpkins and take a walk through the festival , get into the holiday spirit and let the creativity inspire you.
