Science Says: This Is How to Make Your Weekend Feel Longer
NBC

Think about your typical weekend. It probably consists of some combination of the following: Watch TV, read, do laundry, go grocery shopping, exercise (sometimes), and if it’s someone’s birthday, go out to a celebratory brunch or dinner.

Well, according to David Eagleman, author of The Brain: The Story of You, it’s precisely this tendency to fall into the same mundane routine that actually makes it fly by faster.

Instead you should populate your weekends with new activities—like trying out a restaurant or venturing to a different part of town. Do it, and those two days will feel much fuller and significantly longer than they did before. 

As if we needed an excuse for swapping Sunday night meal prep with…literally anything else.
