Can you share with our listeners. Do you have a weekend ritual to chill to relax to renew or not. That's a great question My team always says how was your weekend. And i always answer every weekend's a good weekend so i love the weekend and the first part of the weekend is generally they're not scheduled or structured meetings. Although i do use the weekends to take meetings and other areas outside of work that are important to me or sometimes to connect with People without a schedule per se. But what i generally tried to do is make saturday a work. Free day and so Usually friday nights as a family. We'll have family. Dinner will do family movie and we might stay up late together as a family. So i'd like to sleep in and catch up on sleep because of course during the week we don't get as much sleep as we like and then i usually Start my day exercising. So i go to the jamrah. Ron or i'll take a walk and then because i do intermittent fasting. I'm usually famished by then. So at that point it's usually one or two And i grab something to eat in unusually run errands or connect with the friend. Take a walk these days. I've been walking central park. So let's meet up because it's safe and it's outdoors And then. I might have other meetings like that. I man sometimes usually after three or four. These are times. I'll use to like planning events planning an event now where this upcoming year is. The new york mayoral election. So we're doing a little bit of meet. The candidate so have several other pry projects Work on and then at saturday night. You know i might enough. I have a big work. Project might take some time to do. Some things connect with people but generally not on saturday So i love my weekends. And then i moved to sunday sunday I do use sundays. Moore's a work catch up day. Get ready for the week. But i still go through the same bit of exercise in the morning Spending some time with the family. But i tend to have more calls or things that i have to do and then just get ready for the week.
