If you have been wondering whether or not you are on the path to success you are not alone. Are your goals being achieved, is your work ethic strong? Jacquelyn Smith, a writer for Forbes, has the answer from successful leaders in their fields.  If you want to extend your 9 to 5 grind from Monday –  Friday to the weekend, take some tips from successful pros.

Weekends are generally time for you to take a step back from your work environment and recharge for a new work week. Doing this gives you a chance to de-stress and rest. At times it could be hard to disconnect and maybe even impossible, but it may be necessary for career growth. Here are the top 7 ways you can work on success for the weekend.

  • Make time for family and friends. If you are neglecting your family during the week this is a good time to catch up and dedicate time especially for them.
  • Exercise. This is a proven way to relieve stress and it is good for health and balance.
  • Pursue a passion. This could eventually turn into another source of revenue.
  • Volunteer. Giving back helps and could be an outlet to express aspects of yourself that you cannot at work.
  • Avoid chores. Why leave work to do more work? Take a breather and kick back.
  • Socialize. Whether it is with friends or family unwinding helps to relieve stress.
  • Network. Any opportunity should be used to make new connections.
