Even if I no longer work the traditional 8 to 5 (or 9 pm to 6 am) schedule, I still look forward to weekends. Weekend is when I have my me-time when I dedicate the day/s to pampering, doing new things, wasting time doing what I love or catching up with friends.
When I embraced this lifestyle, I never worry about Mondays or weekdays; but the downside is I still find myself working on weekends. I changed the mindset and made weekends a special time for me to do the things for myself.
I remember back when I was still working and my weekends are usually spent sleeping. Sleeping is luxury; but it is also good for one's health and sanity to keep moving and stay fitter.
It may be a little too late to draft my new year's resolution, but I still aim for fitter and stronger me. I am lucky that I don't easily gain weight no matter how much sugar and salt I have taken - BUT, the main goal is to stay STRONG so I can do more things and go to more places.
It is hard to stay focused when there are too many distractions (movie marathons sound more interesting than moving your muscle, right?). Favori, a popular brand for scents and aromas recently launched a Wellness Product Line to help anyone improve their self from within.
For the gym buffs, it is good to have Sports and Gym Deodorizing Spray, Exercise Gear Deodorizing Spray, and Yoga Mat Deodorizing Spray. I can't imagine the germs living in those equipment while we burn calories! These sprays deodorize and smell good too!
For someone like me who usually just do all things at home - including exercising, the Favori Deodorizing Sprays help set the mood.
For those who do Yoga, there's a Yoga & Meditation Salve which help calm the inner self for better relaxation. I gave up Yoga but I do Face Yoga :) I love that Favori makes the facial exercises more relaxing.
Favori also has soothing aroma oils that I now request to use whenever I book a home massage.
The Favori Lavander Calming Massage Oil is just perfect for me (perfect match with my robe and bed slippers ;))
Weekend is also the time to meet and catch up with friends. Being surrounded with good friends is good for your wellness! We usually hangout at our favorite coffee shop 's al fresco. It is good to have Favori Tobacco Smoke Deodorizing Spray (I gifted 1 bottle each to my super friends :D)
Now that I get the luxury to go to bed or sleep whenever I want, it is ironic that I sometimes feel it is hard to fall asleep. On nights like those, I use the Favori Sleep & Relaxation Salve which my mom also loves.

If you find yourself still working on weekends, I suggest you take my tips on how to set the mood for our fitness and wellness:
1. Set small goals - could be doing planking for 1 minute, doing 20 push-ups. It would help you build your muscle, stamina and confidence to do better. My goal is to make sure I would still fit in my old dresses!
2. Look at pampering/getting fit as a reward. Pay back yourself first.
3. Find a gym buddy. This is the hardest part for me because all my friends are living kilometers away from me. But I already talked to a good friend and we are all set to do Badminton Games on weekends :D
4. Make staying fit an opportunity to showcase what you really love - could be dressing up, mixing good playlist in Spotify or inspiring people to do the same.
5. Get the Favori Wellness Line to set your mood!
This is how weekends should be!
