A Guide to a Relaxing Sunday

Sundays are my absolute favorite day of the week. Don't get me wrong, I love Saturdays and knowing that I don't have to wake up early the next day, but, to me, nothing is better than a relaxing Sunday spent at home. Saturdays in my life tend to be filled with plans, running errands, and visiting with people which makes Sunday even more satisfying. 

Here are some things you can do to make Sunday your favorite day of the week!

1) Don't set an alarm
Instead of an alarm I slightly open my blinds the night before so I can wake up to the sunshine. In my opinion, it's one of the most refreshing ways to wake up!

2) Meet up with friends for brunch
Sundays and brunch go together like macaroni and cheese. Meet up with your friends and spend the morning eating delicious food, drinking mimosas, and catching up!

3) Cozy up with a blanket and read
Nothing beats time spent on the couch with a fluffy blanket, a captivating book, and a hot cup of coffee!

4) Do some yoga
I've been really enjoying yoga lately! I always feel so re-energized and it's been very beneficial to my core strength and balance. I like to follow the Do You Yoga videos on YouTube.

5) Take a bubble bath + enjoy a face mask
This is one of the best ways to unwind before a long week. Run some hot water and throw in a Lush bath bomb (Butterball is my favorite) for the perfect bath. End it with a face mask to really feel refreshed. I like this avocado and oatmeal mask or this charcoal and black sugar mask.

6) Tidy up your house
This isn't exactly a relaxing task but it will make you feel so much better once the clutter in your house is put away. Take a half hour out of your evening to put away the dishes, throw your laundry in the washing machine, or make your bed. Trust me, it will make the rest of the night more enjoyable.

7) Pick out your outfit for Monday
This is something I always do no matter what day it is! It makes the next morning so much easier and like tidying up your house, you'll feel better once it's taken care of.

8) Netflix
End your day catching up on a few episodes of your favorite show! My favorites lately are Gilmore Girls (#TeamJess), Scandal, and Criminal Minds!

How do you like to spend your Sunday? Do you dread them or look forward to them like me?
