Shadow is bringing your weekend encouragement this week.
“Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.”
– Bill Watterson
He is encouraging you to do something just for fun. He would suggest some weekend pet time if you have one.
Pets have a way to taking all the worries of the world away. They love you unconditionally and would love to spend some time with you.
Consider taking them for a walk or a play date at the dog park, or play a nice game of fetch with their favorite toy or ball.
You will be amazed at how much you can unwind just by investing some mindless time and activity with your “fur”-real friend.
For those who do not have a pet, make some time to do a pointless activity to just get away from the stress of your busy week or your job.
Are you a college student who has a mountain of homework or are you a Soldier getting ready for a deployment? Are you a mom or dad who has sick loved ones at home during this outbreak of the flu and numerous other illnesses? Are you a single parent just trying to survive? Are you a doctor who has been working countless hours as a result of all the sickness going around or a professional who carries the weight of the world on your shoulders? It doesn’t matter what your profession is, everyone has a stressful life.
My Friend, this is why it is important to take a step back and just get away to breathe. Grab that book, a movie, a walk on the beach, a bike ride in a park. Find what you love to do and just do it. Your mind, body, and soul will thank you.
