5 science-backed ways to have a healthier weekend
Don’t let the time off derail your wellness goals
We live for the weekends. Especially when we are blessed with that glorious extra day that grants us a three-day reprieve from the daily grind.
It’s also a detour from the health goals you put so much effort in to during the work week. You stay out later and allow yourself to sleep in (without a blaring alarm), indulge in some pizza and beer on Friday night and loosen the reigns on your exercise routine.
It feels great, but what happens during the weekend most definitely doesn’t stay there. In fact, letting loose for two days (let alone three) leaves us with baggage that we carry into the new week. Meaning all that hard work you put in can be completely derailed by the short span of time between happy hour on Friday and Sunday brunch.
