Unhealthy eating habits
Most people follow a healthy diet during the week, but eat and drink freely during the weekends. Consuming junk food, fast food, excessive alcohol consumption are a bad habit that can affect negatively the digestive system because it has to absorb the sudden increase in calories. This leads to weight gain, obesity and many serious health problems.
Be addicted to technology equipment
Being ‘attached’ to technology equipment can lead to many health problems, which reduces concentration and productivity, sleep and stress. So, you should stay away from technology equipment, and take a break to help reduce stress and maximize the benefits of relaxing at the weekend.
Work on weekends
Many people have a habit of taking advantage of work breaks for the next week. This is the worst habit you ever do because the weekend is a relaxing time for you to recharge your energy. Therefore, you should avoid working during holidays. This will help you work more effectively for the following days.
Do all the housework on day off
Spending the majority of the weekend time doing the housework will make you feel exhausted and tired, which leads to an imbalance between work and life.
Instead of planning to do dozens of chores in the house during the holidays, it's a good idea to spend about 30 minutes each night washing, shopping, or cleaning your home. Let yourself participate in interesting and rewarding activities on weekends.
Exercise too much
Many people are busy with work during weekdays, they do not have enough time to exercise every day, so that they spend the time on weekends to practice and exercise. However, after a week of non-exercising, doing exercising too much at the weekend can cause severe muscle aches, even affecting negatively many other organs in the body.
The advice of the experts is that if the weekend is really the only option for exercising, you should only ‘pour’ a little bit of sweat, which means that you do exercise with moderate exercise time and intensity.
