For the majority of us, Sunday is largely a day of rest and preparation for the week. Personally, Sunday is a day that really annoys me at times as it marks the end of the weekend – therefore being the reminder that it is time to get back to reality. Whatever it is that you do – work, study or stay at home, the beginning of the week always means that we have a lot of responsibilities…
Here are my favorite ways to spend a Sunday to end the weekend and get geared for the week ahead:
Watch a Film
As an avid fan of the movies, I love relaxing with a good film and some tasty snacks. Recently I had a marathon of films, catching up on the great Bond films before I watched Skyfall and it was fun and relaxing. So why not just chill at home, make some popcorn, hot chocolate or, my favorite meal, a pasta and watch a film.
Go for a Picnic
Now this requires quite a bit of effort, but it is well worth it. If the weather is suitable, picnics are probably the best way to spend Sunday. Wake up late, pack a nice lunch and go outdoor – either to a park, a picnic site or to the beach – and enjoy the outdoors with a nice meal.
I consider Sunday a day of rest, therefore brunch is an excellent way to not make any effort and still enjoy a lovely meal. Going out for a meal is not always affordable so I wouldn’t recommend a 4 Seasons brunch every week, but it is always nice to treat yourself and make a tradition out of it!
Since a large part of this food revolves around food, it is only fitting to add some other activity that can revitalize you for your week ahead. I make a point to run at least 3 times a week to make sure that I am fit – this helps me boost my productivity at work as well as maintain a positive attitude (endorphins are released during exercise). A quick run on Sunday should be part of your weekly schedule as it can help with your health as well as work performance!
Here are my top 4 ways to spend your Sunday, so if you keep alternating, it adds up to a month. What are your favorite ways to relax on this glorious day of the week? Any suggestions are welcome!
