Synopsis

Laura Vanderkam, the author of What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, shows how we can take control of our weekends in What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend.

Many of us breathe a grateful TGIF when Friday rolls around, envisioning a weekend full of both productivity and refreshment. Yet too often our precious weekends seem to disappear, eaten up by unproductive work or leisure that fails to energize us. Monday morning comes too fast, finding us still unrested, with tasks still undone.

Drawing on real-life stories and scientific research, Vanderkam explains why doing nothing can be more exhausting than doing something and why happy people make weekend plans in advance. She shares weekend tips gleaned from busy people such as politician and news host Mike Huckabee, former CEO Frank Baxter, and TV producer Aliza Rosen. She lists the kind of weekend activities that make people happiest, explains why it's important to unplug at least for a little while, and shares the secret of why Sunday nights may be the most important hours.

What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend is a fun, practical guide that will inspire you to rethink your weekends and start your workweek refreshed, renewed, and on track.

Laura Vanderkam is the author of 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think and All the Money in the World: What the Happiest People Know About Getting and Spending. Her work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Huffington Post, USA Today, Scientific American, and Reader's Digest, among other publications. She lives outside Philadelphia with her husband and their three children.
