You wake up and you know it’s going to be a lazy Sunday. Today is all about the fine art of having a relaxing, soothing, snoozing Sunday! A perfect slow day, a day for breakfasts in bed, naps, and baths.
1. Have a leisurely breakfast or brunch.
Cook something you wouldn’t have time to cook on a weekday morning. Go all out, make coffee in a french press (if you have one – I actually prefer instant coffee) have some toast, spread out your newspaper like you own the place, grab a book, grab a kindle or whatever else you have to read to hand and read slowly. Don’t rush, savor your brekkie, and pretend you’re in a cafe. Check these recipes if you need inspiration.
2. Take a relaxing bath
Find a nice bath bomb, a book or your favorite magazine, some candles, essential oils for your relaxing bath. LUSH Bath Bombs are the best way to enjoy bath time. When you enter one of their stores it smells amazing. Taking a bath with a Lush bath bomb feels like a luxury! Check out our article about how to take a relaxing bath
3. Get out of your house.
Go for a 20-minute walk in the park. I love to do this on a Sunday. I’ll go to Starbucks or buy a healthy green juice and have a nice walk.
4. Plan your next week
Put on your favorite relaxing music. Get something to drink, shut off the Internet, and find a quiet place. Make time for your weekly planning process. I usually sit down with a notebook and my Getting Stuff Done planner and start to layout every day of the week and my top tasks and to-dos.
Netflix is perfect for your lazy Sunday. We love lazy Sundays, and with most of our series back with a new season, our Sundays have become even better! Check out our favorite series
6. Give yourself a mani
Give yourself a manicure! Grab some polishes and take some time to get your nails done! It’s all about you.
7. Watch our YouTube list
From Science to Human Rights, YouTube is a Walhalla for information. The CGD team has put a list together of a couple of YouTube videos that are actually going to motivate you for the week ahead.
