As we get older, we tend to slow down a bit. The weekends stop being about wild parties and social gatherings and start being more about relaxing and unwinding from the week that has just passed. It seems like almost overnight we go from party people to couch people. It’s not all bad: our idea of fun changes as we get older. And it should really, we all know those people well beyond clubbing age who still insist on hitting up the dance floor and going home full of the cocktails at the end of the night. Those people think they are having fun, but that is not always the case. If you are looking for a few ways to spice up your weekend without having to drink yourself into oblivion, consider spending your next few Friday nights trying on some of these activities for fun!
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the company of your friends without having to break open a bottle of wine. If you want to relive your younger years, organize a game night with lots of munchies and some fun classic board games. Or, you can upgrade your game night with the internet and do a “try not to laugh challenge” – all the kids are raving about laugh challenges these days. You’ll watch funny videos online about everything from cats, to car memes, to kids falling down. Just try not to laugh: once one starts, you’ll all laugh yourselves silly.
Load up the car with your girlfriends and head out to the drive in movie theater. Everyone can make something for snacks and you can curl up in your seats in your favorite pyjamas. It doesn’t have to be a big outing to have a lot of fun, and an evening in your pyjamas surrounded by friends may be just what the doctor ordered!
If you and the girls want to get away from it all but time is not on your side, consider booking a local hotel for the night to have a slumber party – but for adults. Grab some giant size bags of chips, some tubs of ice cream and head off to the hotel for some fun with the girls.
If you are feeling a bits kiddish and want to really try life on for size, consider getting a group of friends together to do something amazing like take a hot air balloon ride or go skydiving! Set out on a road trip for the weekend without any real plans of where you’ll end up! Who knows what kind of fun (trouble!) you can get into together. There are lots of ways you can enjoy the company of others without having to come home a slobbering mess after a night at the bar – although, skydiving might make you feel like a slobbering mess once you touch down, but that kind of slobbering mess is worth the adventure!
