Taking time out to relax, unwind, and worry about nothing is one of the most important things you do for your mental health, energy, and stress levels. This is what lazy Sundays were made for. Sometimes an ambitious weekend is the worst thing for your mental health, as you need time to recharge and look after yourself. When you have a busy career and a jam-packed week, sometimes you need to take a little me-time and enjoy a lazy Sunday where you don’t have to worry about getting things done (or even getting dressed).
You can make lazy Sundays a day when you have a clear conscience about doing nothing. Do your cleaning and laundry on Saturday and come up with a long list of ideas for the day that you can pick from at the moment. There are some great ideas for making your lazy Sundays both relaxing and productive, including getting lost in a good book, precooking to help with meals for the rest of the week, taking a long bath, going for a run, doing your nails, or catching up with friends and family. The only thing you should avoid is spending all day on social media.
How do you facilitate cozy, relaxing, lazy Sundays that will leave you genuinely recharged for the week ahead? A few decorating ideas can help you create a space where you can relax.
A Big Bedside Table
Lazy Sundays mean not getting out of bed and having just about everything you want in reach. A big bedside table is exactly what you need to ensure you’ve always got coffee, water, breakfast, your phone, and a book close to your hand.
A Cozy Duvet
Who needs to get out of bed when you’re as comfortable as you’ll ever be right in bed under your favorite duvet? Not only are the right duvet covers essential to getting a good night’s sleep, but they’re also going to make long, lazy Sundays much better. You can easily shop online for comfortable new duvet covers and get it all done from bed this Sunday.
A Fully-Stocked Bookshelf
Reading is one of the perfect activities when you don’t want to get out of bed. Bookworms will already have more books than they can fit on their shelves, which may signify that it’s time to expand. Another lovely lazy Sunday activity is reorganizing those bookshelves. You get to be both lazy and feel good about the fact that you’re not just watching Netflix.
Lots and Lots of Pillows
You have your comfortable duvet, but do you have a mountain of pillows for your day-long lounge? You haven’t experienced luxury until you’ve spent the day in bed with about a dozen pillows. You can build forts, tuck one underneath every part of your body, and pile them up in any configuration you can dream of. When you’re shifting around with the book you’re reading; you’ll be grateful for all the pillows.
Lazy Sundays are about self-care and recharging your energy. Make sure your bedroom is ready.
