Conclude your whole week with our collection of weekend quotes below that can capture the essence of this short and most awaited time.
Best Weekend Quotes
The concept of the weekend is closely related to religious rest days - Muslims on Fridays, Jews on Saturdays, and Christians on Sundays. It slowly evolved to two days during the Industrial Revolution in the late 1800s because the farmers turned factory workers demanded time off with their families within their six to seven days of work.
Finally, after years of adaptations, riots, and debates, the United States of America officially embraced the five-day system during the Great Depression to fight the unemployment rate.
Our valued rest days have come a long way. So let's savor every moment by reading the following weekend quotes below.
Wild And Crazy Weekend Quotes
If you're planning to have a blast on the weekends, you've probably been thinking about it since Monday morning. But unfortunately, party decorations like glitter and balloons are primarily plastic and detrimental to our planet's health.
If you organize a party, you can make it more sustainable by choosing eco-friendly alternatives or by being more creative. The market already offers plastic-free versions in the form of eco-friendly glitter and balloon alternatives. For confetti, we can punch holes in flowers and leaves. So let's always strive to excel in protecting the environment, even while having fun.

Relatable Weekend Quotes To Relax
After a hard week at work, we sometimes spend the whole weekend relaxing instead of going out of the house. We often spend time on our hobbies, catching up on our favorite shows, or doing nothing at all. Some schedule household chores during the weekend as well. Interestingly, research proves its therapeutic effect even if it's a chore.
For example, a 2015 study showed that being mindful while washing the dishes can have positive effects1. The numbers revealed a 27% decrease in nervousness and a 25% hike in mental inspiration, while the control group experienced no benefits.
Even mundane activities can benefit us if we practice mindfulness. Furthermore, you'll find many other ways to ensure a relaxing weekend; plan to take a personal retreat, practice self-care, or simply chill out.
Whatever your preference, make your day worthwhile by absorbing the messages of the weekend quotes below.

Weekend Wishes To Greet People With
We can only truly enjoy a fun-filled weekend when we separate it from work. As advised by Elizabeth Saunders, an author and time management expert, frontload all the work during the workweek to allot time for unexpected issues if it occurs later.
