I don’t know about you but I like to take some time on a Sunday to recharge for the week ahead. Working long days start to take its toll after a while and I find it really necessary to recharge and prepare myself for a new week. Self-care is something that we all practice in different ways. Some like to binge watch Netflix, whilst others like to go for a long walk. That’s the beauty of self-care; there is no right or wrong. It’s just about finding what works for you.
I like to make sure that all of the boring chores such as doing the laundry and cleaning the house are done on a Saturday. This means I have all day Sunday to do whatever I please. Each week my Sunday will vary with what I do but I have certain things that I do most weeks. These are a few of my favourite things to do for some self-care on a Sunday.
Go for a walk
I like my Sunday’s to be pretty relaxed at home but I do always enjoy going for a short walk. It’s a good way to blow the cobwebs away; get some fresh air and enjoy some peaceful time. With the Autumn coming, I love going to the forest for a walk. There’s something so satisfying about walking through the crunchy leaves.
Watch a film
I mean who doesn’t enjoy laying on the sofa and watching a good film? It’s the perfect way to switch off for a few hours and enjoy some time relaxing. In the winter I always light a candle to make it extra cosy and make sure I have a blanket on hand.
Sunday evenings will usually include a face mask and a hot bath. I put the fairy lights on in my bedroom and relax with a face mask and often paint my nails. Then I go and have a hot relaxing bath.
I feel most relaxed when I’m wearing comfortable clothes. For me, that’ll usually be some leggings and a cosy jumper. If I’m relaxing at home you’ll definitely never find me sat in a pair of jeans!
In true British fashion, I LOVE to have a roast dinner on a Sunday. There’s something about eating a yummy roast dinner that leaves me feeling really content and happy.
