Weekends in most countries around the world consist of Saturdays and Sundays. And while a few businesses and organizations in many underdeveloped countries remain open on Saturdays as well for limited working hours only, Saturday still counts as a weekend.
Aside from business and organizations remaining open on Saturdays, many individuals also spend their Saturdays like any other normal day.
But when it comes to Sundays, everyone agrees that it is a completely non-working day. Perhaps this is the main reason why a good number of people on Sundays like to sleep for more hours than usual.
To these people, Sunday means an escape from all the tension and stress that they otherwise go through during weekdays.
According to sleep experts and psychologists, sleeping for more hours on Sunday does not impede any person’s normal performance levels and is okay.
But these sleep experts and psychologists also recommend following a fixed and scheduled sleeping pattern throughout the entire week.
This means that rather than sleeping more on Sunday’s to compensate for the sleep lost during other days should be discouraged.
So what to do during all those extra hours on weekend Sundays which in your case should now mean no sleep at all.
While we are no experts to guide our readers on their sleeping schedules, we can still help them.
Therefore in order to make their weekend Sunday more rewarding, we have gathered a list of some 32 productive things. Anything in this list can be done during all the active hours on weekend Sunday rather than just during the extra hours.
So let’s start with these 32 fun things that you can do on your weekends to help you get the most out of it.
32 Fun things to do for a much better and super productive weekend
For a much better and super productive weekend, this Sunday you should definitely try the following list of 32 fun things for a fun filled weekend Sunday.
1. Plan an activity with your friends and family
People often tend to get very less or no time at all during their weekdays to spend with their friends and family members.
If you also happen to be busy and are unable to catch up on important things going in the lives of people that you love, perhaps this is the time.
Either plan a fun trip outside or just stay at home and do a round table conference type of a thing. In simple words, talk with them to make them believe that no matter how busy you are, you still care for them.
2. Read some book or magazine
You can also read your favorite books or finish any magazine subscriptions received during the week that have been lying around for some time now.
3. Plan a list of to-do things for the coming week
While this actually is work, weekends can be a great time to plan a list of to-do things for the coming week.
This is because you have a relaxed mind and body which can serve better to understand and resolve any complicated issues related to your office.

Most people aren’t aware of what is happening around in their towns or cities. Check websites of your town or city hall to learn about any events scheduled to take place today.
While most of the events offer free entry, those charging any fees are also very nominally priced as they happen to generate contributions for the hall fund.
You can also spend a few hours of your day volunteering at any event organized by a welfare society.
10. Making repairs
We all have a few things at home that need simple repair work, so why not do it on weekends.
To add some fun to it, you can watch a do-it-yourself (DIY) video to better understand the repair process.
11. Feed birds and stray cats and dogs

Sharing your knowledge can be both fun and help as it can bring a change in someone’s life.
14. Take a bubble bath or shower
For a fun and soothing experience, you can also spend some time standing under a running shower and feel the water travelling through your body from your head to the feet.
