Today is Self-care Sunday and here’s what your Sundays should look like if you would like to start implementing these tips!
1. Wake up slowly.
When Sunday comes around it’s finally time to catch up with our brains even when our bodies want to fully get up.
This is because, during our busiest days, our minds don’t get the extra time to focus and restore our goals.
So, relieve yourself on this special day and encourage your body to relax and recover and wake up slowly.
After all, Sunday is the best day that you get to gradually, peacefully, and luxuriously wake up.
2. Next, start your day off with a soothing cup of tea/coffee.
Now, after you wake up, don’t rush out the door to the Farmer’s Market before making time to drink something warm. That would be a crime!
During the week, mornings are usually so hurried anyways, so Sundays are the perfect time to sit down, relax and unwind and since you already woke up slowly you might as well enjoy a hot cup of coffee or herbal tea with hopefully no disturbances.
3. Allow yourself to enjoy a warm beautiful breakfast, mindfully.
Once your Sunday morning routine has commenced, your most favorite part will no doubt be a warm breakfast in the morning.
Breakfasts during the weekend are an excellent way to take care of you. This is the time you get to make your home-made waffles or pancakes and just sit and indulge.
You will understand how fantastic this is when you finally get to sit in your pajamas with a nice steaming dish of food on your lap, instead of eating breakfast all week long on the go. Take a bite and appreciate the ease and gratitude for this day.
4. Bake something for the week ahead.
If you really want to find a creative outlet that also doubles down with being more productive and kind, then Sunday is your day to bake!
According to this study, baking for others adds to a feeling of well-being, helps relieve stress, and makes you feel that you have done something good for the world which could increase your meaning in life.
Sunday baking is both a perfect and thoughtful practice and a wonderful way to create something for you to enjoy all week long.
5. Bathe like the queen you are.
While there’s nothing wrong with vegging out completely (in fact, that’s what Sundays are designated for), it’s also pretty crucial to make an effort to really take care of yourself and hygiene.
That’s why having a hydrating bath and getting really clean is one of the best Sunday self-care rituals there is.
While enjoying a nice long bath, why not add a guilt-free moisturizing hair mask as a special treat.
Since dry skin and damaged hair is a battle that seems to be nonending, there’s no better day to do this than on a (hopefully) quiet Sunday afternoon.
6. Dress to destress & not to impress (unless it’s for yourself).
One of the best things about Sundays is that you get to feel extra cozy on this day. So start the day off with a cozy feeling and try to wear something smooth, soft, and comfortable.
Lounge ware really is the best Sunday attire that’ll round out with your Sunday afternoon and these leggings come in so many cozy options.
So ditch the work clothes and impressing on this day and really just veg out and be comfy.
7. Soak Up Some Time alone.
Do yourself and your wellbeing a favor and spend a little time by yourself today.
Spending time by yourself is so important. You really have to take time out for yourself, and there is no better time for this than during your self-care Sunday routine.
So consciously carve out your own little alone time and time-slot if you have to.
And if your house is too crowded, go for an hour to the bookstore if you have to or go for a long walk and have that little time to yourself to relax.
Your mind, body, and spirit really need this and it’ll rejuvenate you for the week.
8. Prepare your week with meal planning.
Now, since you are having a routine full of relaxation, you should still do at least one thing that helps your future self out.
And being prepared with food throughout your whole week will do just that.
Write some things out that you’d like to eat for the week (with respect to food and meal planning), and put them on the refrigerator.
Once you’ve listed all these instructions, take a trip to your local farmers market (they are open on Sundays) and gather up all of your supplies.
Sundays really are the best for getting ahead and when it comes to nutrition and staying healthy, your Sunday self-care routine will be complete if you put your health on the list of things to do on this special day.
There you go, you now have some encouraging things to do on Sunday! But know that any day is great for this really, but it’s best to get this all in on the day before you head into your workweek.
You’ll feel totally refreshed and ready to conquer another week of your tasks and obligations until your next Sunday rolls in again!
