Lazy Sundays are Good for You!

To my dear readers:

The past 2 weeks have passed by like a whirlwind. I’ve been so busy adjusting back to my regular and new routines, also fitting in socializing and family times that I realize I am neglecting something very important in achieving work-life balance. It is ME!

Where I am, we have been blessed with warm summer-like weather for the past 2 weekends even though it’s Fall. Last Sunday I was thinking I should take advantage of the beautiful sunny day by doing something outdoorsy. However, I finally listened to what I really wanted and needed which was a lazy Sunday spent in my pajamas and doing nothing at all. I have been mentally and physically exhausted for a while now. My version of a lazy Sunday was being in my PJs and baking some goodies with the windows wide open so the sun can shine into the kitchen, while listening to peaceful music. Having a lazy Sunday all to myself made a world of difference for the rest of the week whether I am at work, exercising or being with other people. I felt more refreshed, energized and happier. πŸ™‚

My lazy Sunday reminded me gently that all of us have to slow down once in a while and really listen to what our body and mind need to rejuvenate our soul. Having “Me” time allows us to enjoy and live in the moment and makes us feel more calmer, re-energized and confident in dealing with anything that comes our way in the upcoming days.

What is your version of a lazy Sunday? πŸ˜€

Wishing you all a happy beautiful Sunday & week ahead!! ❀

XO,

  1. I am having a very lazy Sunday myself πŸ™‚ agree completely. Time to recharge for a busy week ahead. Yesterday I was busy all day, at the VegFest in London & then 3 hours out running & walking in the beautiful Richmond Park. I forgot to drink enough water yesterday and feel a bit dehydrated so I’m spending today drinking, eating πŸ˜€ and reading the sunday paper!

    • Hi April! You were so busy two weeks ago, but what you were doing, sounds so fun! How was the VegFest? Next time I visit London again, I’ll have to go to Richmond Park. ^^ I hope you are having a relaxing beautiful Sunday again!! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Tabitha, long time no see here. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. πŸ™‚ I hope you have another wonderful Sunday with your daughters!! πŸ˜€

  2. Taking time away from the crowds and cares of life is good for us. One day a week to relax (without stress and work) is as important as sleeping every night. That is the meaning of Sabbath, to REST – one day every week! πŸ™‚

    Sending love and blessings to you for the week ahead!

    • Dear Carmen, I had no idea that’s what Sabbath means! Makes so much sense, thanks for sharing this with me. πŸ™‚ I would love to do this every week. πŸ™‚ Sending you back love and blessings as well!! ❀

  3. I’m all for lazy sundays, or even lazy weekends once in a while. Me time is so important! My lazy weekends involve a lot of binge watching tv shows, cooking, maybe some yoga or reading and skyping family and friends. It’s all about giving my body a rest πŸ™‚

    Your lazy Sunday sounds great πŸ™‚ What did you bake?

    • Hi Anna! Love what you do on your lazy weekends. πŸ™‚ It’s so important to give our bodies a rest once in a while since our daily lives are so hectic. Thanks! ^^ I baked some muffins and cookies. πŸ™‚ Happy Weekend!! xo
