How productive are you, on non-work days, with doing stuff around your house, car, yard, or working out/exercising?

Asked by jca (28392 points ) February 1st, 2014

I am always torn on non-work days with enjoying free time vs. wanting to be productive.

How productive are you on your days off, with getting stuff done around the house, car, yard, or exercising?

If I have a day with nothing planned, then I will do absolutely nothing.

@dxs
That is impossible.

Very. I usually get up on Saturdays ready to go. Laundry, house cleaning, food shopping. Sundays are often “family day” where we do, mostly, whatever my wife and daughter want to do.

It’s easier to be productive when it’s warm outside. Cleaning the house gets so old!

Not very. See, here I am on the computer instead of doing any of the stuff waiting for me- all those exciting things like cleaning the kitchen, vacuuming, laundry….

@ccrow I’ll help. I’ll take your place at the computer so you can get that stuff done. You’re welcome. :)

In the winter I’m a hibernating sloth. In the summer I’m constantly on the go like an energizer bunny on crank.

I only have Sundays off right now and I try to not do anything I don’t absolutely have to.
I sleep in til about 8:30–9 and then have a leisurely morning, don’t shower or dress until about noon and then go out for a walk, go to a movie or catch up on a Netflix movie, go see a friend or do something with my daughter.
I clean on Sat. before work like right now. haha
I have laundry going and just cleaned my bathroom.

I’m productive in getting grocery shopping and laundry done, but that’s about it. My weekends are spent not working out, eating way too many fattening foods, and enjoying time off work.

I’m glad I’m not the only lazy winter jelly.
Of course, most of us know who the non-productive on here are – we talk with them all day. lol

Well, if today is any indication, then not very, lol! In my defense, I am waiting to get my tax refund to purchase a few items for my apartment…until then I am sort of “on hold”, but I always get laundry, dishes, etc. done.

Today I had no commitments. So I read a book for most of the day and did some school work at a park. I am going to eat now and then play the piano for a few hours after that. I was supposed to go exercise but I didn’t.
I’m starting to be more productive with my “nothing days”, but I still work best when I have a list of things to do. Routines work best with me.

I put on pants so that I don’t get arrested for indecency when I leave the house. That is about as productive as I get on the weekends.

@livelaughlove21 I bet I ate more fattening foods this weekend than you did. Ever had chicken-fried bacon? Of course, I didn’t find out until after the mozzarella sticks came that, for a couple of extra bucks, they would’ve wrapped those in bacon as well.. so they put extra bacon on the chili-cheese tater tots.

@jerv Well, I hate a fried egg, bologna, and cheese sandwich for breakfast, followed by a plate full of beef and cheddar taquitos. After that, I downed an Oreo milkshake from DQ. For dinner, we went to Outback, where I had an alcoholic beverage, half of a bloomin’ onion, a 9 oz steak with a sweet potato loaded with cinnamon butter and brown sugar. I topped it off with a piece of carrot cake. Finally, I made a sizable dent in a medium popcorn with extra butter and salt at the movies while I nearly died from boredom during the film Gravity.

For a 5’5” 135 lb girl, I can put it away.
