Weekend Rituals

roissant

No matter how wonderful, productive or enjoyable the work week may have been, our weekends (traditional or not) are a wonderful time to savor time doing precisely what brings us pleasure. Yes, a getaway weekend every once in a while is certainly a treat, but the everyday, regular Saturday and Sunday can be magnificent if we consciously choose to bring into our lives rituals that we love. And the good news is, once we know how to make the most of them, we have the opportunity to enjoy them quite often.

Here are a few rituals I regularly look forward to and eagerly wait for nearly each week:

1. Stopping by the local bakery to pick up a croissant
