Generally most of a Proper Day Off will happen outside your home. It would be a shame not to spend a least a bit of it in a park, any time of year, even if you’re just passing through it to meet someone.
Try not to spend much of it in your car either. Make use of your feet, or your bike if possible. Cars fill us with the sensation of needing to be somewhere else.
... but don’t make an itinerary.
It’s only practical to have a mental list of places you might go. Know beforehand what area of town to head to, where to stop first, whether to go to the flea market or the waterfront.
One other general rule: Do more than one thing. Get an earlyish start, so that the day has room for variety, but don’t look at the clock much.
We live surrounded by wonderful amenities and cultural institutions, many of which exist solely for human enjoyment and well-being.
A Proper Day Off is a perfect time to make use of your community’s parks, museums, galleries, markets, public spaces, performance venues, and heritage buildings.
