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.

To get in the party mood on Saturday night, carry on reading our next batch of weekend quotes.

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. So make your day worthwhile by absorbing the messages of the weekend quotes below.

Quotes About The Weekend You Don't Want To End

It's not magic when the clock ticks faster during the weekend2 because science has already proven it's a natural occurrence when we're having fun. Using that same concept, we should also make our workweek fun and productive if we want the weekends to arrive sooner. To do this, we can allot time during Sundays for meal preparations for the whole week, filling our weekly planners, or choosing our outfits for the week of work ahead. 

If we allow it, workweeks can be fun too! So, as you read the next set of weekend quotes, make the most of your Saturday and Sunday.

Weekend Wishes To Greet People With

We can truly enjoy the weekend only 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. 

Furthermore, if we commit to plans for the weekend, we can prioritize or decline activities better. Keep work calls and papers from creeping into your weekend. Read the full article by Saunders in Harvard Business Review.

Greet people with these weekend quotes as you clock off from work. Have a great weekend!
