Call a loved one

Catch up with a long-distance friend or family member with a phone call or Skype session. Your loved one will be touched that you thought to call, and the gab session will boost your spirits, especially if you’re feeling lonely. These are 24 little ways to be a true friend.

Write a letter

As meaningful as a phone call or “I miss you” email is, a handwritten letter is an even more special surprise. Take your time crafting a thoughtful about how much that person means to you, and slip it into the mailbox to make someone’s day. Check out these things your mail carrier won’t tell you.

Rearrange the furniture

Rethinking your room’s setup can give your home a fresh look without spending a dime. If large pieces of furniture are too much of a hassle, mix up your knick-knacks or organize your shelves. You’ll bust boredom for the day, and break out of a rut from your same old arrangement. Start with these interior designer tricks for styling bookshelves.

Organize one small space

When cleaning the house sounds too boring or overwhelming, pick one spot that could use some TLC and go to work. Focus on your junk drawer, workbag, or desk. It won’t take long, but you’ll feel so much less scattered—and might find yourself wanting to keep the momentum going with another organizing project. Here are other things organized people do on the weekend.

 

Have a private dance party

Make a playlist of your favorite songs—you know, the ones you can never resist dancing to—and get moving. It’s an equipment-free workout that’s way too fun to feel like exercise. Plus, you could have a boost in mental health—one Australian study found that a tango class could reduce depression and stress in people with depression.

Play dress-up

Take a hard look in your closet and come up with new ways to pair pieces together. Come up with some creative combos, and you’ll be sure to score compliments. Plus, you’ll get more use out of the clothes you already own by coming up with new outfits. These tricks can help you revamp your wardrobe in just one weekend.

Cook a gourmet dinner

Takeout and 30-minute meals might be your go-to during the week when you’re too burnt out to spend time at the stove, but having a free day will give you the chance to take your time with a more involved recipe. If you didn’t get a chance to pick up fancy ingredients, dig around in your cupboard for shelf-stable foods you’ve had sitting around, and turn them into a swanky three-course meal. Go all out by setting the table with your good silverware and china.

Do meal prep

Maybe spending a long time on a certain meal isn’t your thing. In that case, cut down the cooking time for future meals by prepping ingredients now that you have some extra time on your hands. Wash and chop vegetables you’ll use throughout the week, or throw together entire recipes that you can freeze for later. Check out these other brilliant cooking shortcuts.

Bake a batch of cookies

Whipping together a batch of your favorite baked goods is fun, and you’ll get a chance to enjoy the tasty products of your creation. Save half for a friend, and you’ll score some major brownie points (pun intended).

Pamper yourself

Fill your tub with warm water and bubbles, and settle in for a relaxing soak. Make it even better by lighting candles and playing your favorite soft tunes, or smear your face with a homemade facial mask. Finish with one of these self-massage tricks.
