As much as I crave for productive, well thought out weekends, filled with lots of plans and exciting things to do, sometimes it is nice to just relax, chill and have a bit of a lazy mooch at home. 

Last weekend, James and I had no plans, which was so lovely. It meant that I could get up when I wanted, get dressed when I was ready and I didn’t have to rush around anywhere. 

As I have a full time job in an office, working Monday to Friday, nine to five I often put pressure on myself to make sure that I am really productive on a weekend in terms of my social life, looking after the house, and spending quality time with James. As well as juggling this, I also get the majority of my blogging done at the weekend, which includes filming, planning, taking photographs and writing content. 

Last weekend however I decided to make no plans and just enjoy time away from work. As much as I love blogging it does sometimes feel as though I have two jobs as I am working on Madolyn Thinks most evenings and weekends which can become a little tiring after a while. 

I think it is important to listen to your body and realise when it is time to take a break and just relax and go with the flow, rather than constantly plan and organise your spare time and actually enjoy some ‘down time’. 

I vlogged last weekend so be sure to have a watch on my YouTube channel to find out what I got up to. It was so nice to have the time to chill in bed with a cup of tea, go out for dinner with James and visit our parents and have a catch up without me panicking that the light is fading and I still need to take however many pictures, edit, write etc etc… 

I felt so much better after having a more relaxed weekend as I was able to catch up on my sleep, get lots of reading done and spend some undistracted time with James and my family.
